Braised Beef Short Ribs

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2011
This is a great basic recipe for braised short ribs. However, I did change a lot of stuff so maybe my 5 star rating is a little skewed. I followed the advice of some of the other reviewers and chose not to flour the ribs before searing them in the pan. I used about 1.5lbs of short ribs and added the following: extra garlic - 2 cloves, 2 bay leaves, about 1/2 cup red wine, basil, oregano, and sage. I also used A LOT more stewed tomatoes than recipe calls for - 28 oz can of them plus a half cup of water, adding more water over the course of the cooking process as it reduced. I think the extra tomatoes thickened the sauce enough as it reduced so that there was no need to mix in any flour or cornstarch at the end. I left out the potatoes and threw in some frozen peas in the last 5 min of cooking. It came out insanely good! This dish is hard to mess up, even if you change as much stuff as I did.

Jose's Shrimp Ceviche

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2010
Yum! I was craving ceviche and this was perfect! I tweaked it slightly though, by adding diced cucumbers instead of celery, the juice of one lemon, and some lemon and lime zest. I also used frozen cooked shrimp and canned diced tomatoes, and was amazed at how fresh it still tasted. This is a great basic ceviche recipe!
