Skipped both the chestnuts and the dates, and since they were optional, I didn't think they would make much difference in my overall opinion of this dish. Can't really put my finger on what it was that I wasn't that crazy about. Basically, it was a stew with a slightly off taste. I guess I was hoping that it would be more of a glazed sweetened rib, but it wasn't. I think I will stick to a more traditional savory stew next time I make stew, and find a more glazed BBQ type recipe for the short ribs.
