FFwD: Short Ribs in Red Wine and Port

PLEASE do not judge this recipe based on the picture. I made this for Valentine's dinner and we didn't eat until 8pm. That means absolutely NO natural light and also a rushed picture. I mean, it was a romantic dinner... no taking pictures for 10 minutes to make sure I got a good one.

But taste-wise??? Holy moly... so good! The ribs cook for 3 hours in a mixture of red wine and port. Then once they are done, they are broiled for a few minutes and then brushed with orange zest and cilantro. I don't think I've EVER had a better beef meal. It was that good!

Go buy Around My French Table by Dorie Greenspan for the recipe. This book won't let you down!

I think they look great for the lack of natural light. I've been thinking lots lately about how to get around the natural light quotient. So annoying!
Glad you had a great Valentines day!
