Spicy Short Ribs Stew

Elsa Beene


One of my husband's favorite food I've cooked. Spicy from Thai dried red chili, the sauce is sweet and savory.
You can substitute Thai dried chili with pepper red crushed.
I tried cooking with regular pot and dutch oven, but the result was by using dutch oven is better.
