It has been excruciatingly difficult to get back in the swing of things this new year.

I took a holiday break, but my planned 10 days turned into 15. It was just so lovely spending time with my family, not thinking about anything other than what we would all do together on any particular day.

Life should have a lot more of that in it, in my opinion.

These braised beef short ribs are kinda like that: low and slow and lazy. Brown them well, toss in a few goodies and let them do their thing. No fuss yet they turn out something amazing. It’s basically just mirepoix, some wine, herbs and garlic, all simmering together until the short ribs become meltingly tender.

Did you notice that there’s a spoon on my plate? A spoon…for the meat. A meat spoon. These braised beef short ribs are so tender you can eat them with a spoon. They literally fall apart and are crazy flavorful.

If you’ve never braised beef short ribs before, you need to go pick some up today. Or this weekend. But definitely soon. They’re the perfect lazy-day weekend meal and they’ll make your house smell amazing!

Just one thing…you’ll need an entire bottle of wine for this. And you won’t be drinking it, but that’s the sacrifice you’ll have to make to get really flavorful meat. I promise it will be worth it.

    I haven’t taken a break from blogging in 4 years. Even over the holidays. It’s insane. THIS year I said to Paul, “I’m done. I’m not even going to check my Reader over Winter break.” And then he caught me doing my Top 10 posts. “How is that taking a break?” he asked, to which I replied “Well, it’s not a NEW post.” *rolls eyes* But, of course, those posts are very time consuming…and once I’m on the blog, I end up on Pinterest and FB. So, no break. I AM SO STUPID.

      You’re not stupid – I wish I never NEEDED a break! But I have to say, I feel so refreshed and ready to get back in the thick of it. And I was on Facebook although not as much as normal. Happy New Year, Amy! xo

    I love short ribs and haven’t made them for years! My recipe is somewhat similar (particularly the entire bottle of wine!). Such good stuff – this looks terrific. I’m glad you took some time off, but happy to see you posting again. Happy New Year!

    I’ve felt the same way. We went to Vegas for New Year’s and it’s been so hard to get back to work, blogging and wedding planning. I’m excited it’s Friday!! :)

    Happy 2013, Kristy!! 2013…that sounds so odd and wonderfully cosmic all at the same time.

    I love the idea of tender meat that can be enjoyed with a spoon! (Wine love goes a long way.) Please come cook for me, I need a hungry chainsaw to break through my meat dishes. o_O Gorgeous photos!! I’m glad you had an extra bottle of wine on hand for actual wine drinking.

      I always have an extra bottle of wine around ;-) And I would love to cook for you, V! I think we’d probably end up just drinking all the wine though! Happy New Year, my friend! xoxo
