How Short Ribs Make You A Better Cook

It gives you a flavorful, fork-tender dish every time.

If you're looking for a restaurant-quality meal you can make with ease in your own kitchen, short ribs are the answer. This flavorful cut of meat slowly cooks down into a dish so tender you could eat it with a spoon. (Bonus: for a meal with so much flavor, short ribs are perfectly affordable, too.) These are just some of the reasons why many high-end restaurants have taken to featuring them on their menus -- and why you should be making some for your next dinner.

Short ribs can be as simple (or complicated) to make as you want them to be. No matter which recipe you follow, you really can't go wrong. And the fact that they're even better the next day makes them a winning dish in our book.
