Way too fatty as written
August 26, 2014
On the plus side, this recipe makes the house smell absolutely fantastic. Unfortunately, the aromas are about the best thing from this recipe.
I think part of the problem is in Step 3. I think it's impossible to skim off enough of the fat to prevent the dish from being unappealingly fatty and greasy. Perhaps the results would be better if one refrigerated the sauce overnight and then spooned off the hardened fat. Then again, that would defeat the purpose of the Food Made Fast series.
Regardless, there are tastier short ribs recipes that I would prepare before I took the time to tweak this one.
Cons: Texture, Taste, Appearance
