Braising renders tough cuts like these beef short ribs meltingly tender with relatively little hands-on cooking time (and the glaze makes the flavors even more intense). The ribs freeze beautifully, so cook up this extra large batch and stash half away for a later date.
This is an ultimate summer steak salad, full of ingredients just begging to be picked up fresh at the farmers' market. It's a hearty dinner salad, but also makes great potluck or picnic fare.
One way of feeling like you're eating more when eating less is by serving it in a different form. Three of these "sliders" equates to about half the meat in a normal burger, yet they're so flavorful, satisfying and filling, you'll never miss the other half.
