Soy Braised Beef Short Ribs

It's not really the season for braising, but a long grilling session in the back yard is a bit off limits right now as we undergo another project.  And since I was drawn to some meaty beef short ribs at the market, braising it will be.  I decided to try the same method as that I used for some oxtail back in December.  The recipe I used is in the link, but briefly, it is browning the short rib, braising them in a soy and apple juice sauce, and then frying them.  Instead of a deep fry, I opted for a quick pan fry just to crisp the outside a bit.  

For a side dish, I pan fried some brussels sprouts in the duck fat from last night's dinner.  Yum!
The most joyous part of this was that both my kids expressed excitement when they thought I was making oxtail.  For some reason, it brings a bit of self satisfaction that they are excited about something off the mainstream.  

A second place short rib did not disappoint.
