Sunday nights are pretty brutal – not only is your weekend over, but in like 12 hours, you’ll be starting another work week – a 5-day one at that. Ick. AND when you realize that you are not in fact $540 million dollars richer, as you had intended to be when you returned to work on Monday, well it’s just that extra punch in the stomach.
BUT a delicious Sunday dinner can make all the difference in the world, and let me tell you, this short rib recipe I found on Eat Yourself Skinny did NOT disappoint. Ironically though, it’s not exactly a skinny recipe haha. Leave it to me to go to a healthy blog and find the one non-good for you recipe they have. But I figured a) it’s the last night of the weekend and b) we didn’t win the lottery, so Dave and I deserve a special treat 🙂
So here it is kids – Slow-Cooked Short Ribs – a meal that takes 8-9 hours to be ready, but is worth the wait, so much so that Dave had seconds! He never does that! It’s got a little bite to it, but it’s sweet at the same time – paired with Garlic Mashed potatoes and grilled asparagus, I don’t mind the food coma feeling this Monday morning. The only part I left out was the Worcestershire sauce. You know when you imagine something in your cabinet and then you go to get it and it’s not there? Yeah, that was the W. sauce for me – still amazing flavor though, and I’m sure the W. sauce would enhance it even more.
