Looking good! This is after 2.5 hours in the oven! Short ribs were served with garlic mash potatoes and steamed broccoli!
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. I picked up bone in short ribs from Costco. I have never bought my short ribs for my Korean Kalbi jheem from anywhere other than from a Korean market... but I wanted to try a new recipe today. Season short ribs with salt and pepper. Heat oil in a large Dutch oven. I also added seasoning to my flour mix and coated the meat in all sides. Placing the meat in two at a time, sear the meat. Add diced onions and carrot mix ( I didn't have any celery but you can add that as well) brown the mixture. (Add tomato paste optional), stir in red wine and some chicken stock....scraping all the burned bits from the pot. Reduce the liquid to half . Add a sprig of rosemary and thyme with seared meat and transfer to oven. Cook until short ribs are tender (around 3 hours). It's important to spoon fat from the surface before serving.
No, he's not taking the trash out...he's playing against them. Those bins are strategically placed for him to play against them! We should have given him a younger brother to play basketball with! Oh well, those trash bins will do! Go Randy Go!
April 19th is a special day in our family! It's my mom's and Allison's birthday. I remember the day she was born. My mom was so excited about sharing her birthday with her new baby grand daughter! Happy 75th birthday and Happy 19th birthday! Life with you two is a wonderful blessing! Ray of sunshine from my mom and my Allison has given me much joy!
We start escrow on this house this week. We are digging up our idea banks and websites to come up with a fresh design. However, we gravitate towards what we like which is our Happy Valley house. Who knows, we might try to replicate our current house there? This house sits on the mighty Columbia River with the PDX as our front neighbors. We wish to relocate the entrance of the house, improve curb appeal and maximize our view without the funky angles. I will use my blog as a medium to update all the details... so stay tuned for upcoming house transformation series! We will remain in our HV house until the reno is done so you can still come visit and stay with us this Summer.
We purchased an older home in Vancouver, Wa. ENK and I are up to the challenge once again to build something for our family! We are super excited to tackle this one since it will be our first renovation vs. building a brand new home!
