Here is another Beat the Heat recipe, again cooked on the stove instead of the oven. A good pan with a tight fitting lid is a must for this recipe or you will have to continue to add water as it cooks. I use a Le Creuset Dutch Oven when I want to cook a recipe like this one on the stove.

The short ribs fall apart as it cooks and is amazing! I get the little round onions and carrots from Trader Joe’s, regular or baby carrots will be good also. You can add more vegetables if desired, I used what I had on hand. You could also make this in the crock pot if desired.

When buying short ribs, there are 3 different kinds. Boneless like I used here and cut from the chuck. English cut include the bone and Flanken which is cut across several bones and usually those are the ones you see cut into 2 inch pieces.

    I love anything to beat the heat too. The lid to my crockpot just broke and there is a Le Creuset store about 2 minutes away. I would call that fate. Thanks so much!

    My comment is that you madame cook very well and I love your recipes, but I don’t known how to get some details because you know here in Mozambique we face many problems related with cooking specialy because many things you use for your dishes one doesn’t find esealy here, so maybe you could suggest alternatives. To tell u the truth I’m a man who doesn’t have habilities to cook but appreciates good food. Yours faithfully, Tony, from Mozambique, Africa.

      Hi Tony,
      I’m afraid I wouldn’t know how to suggest something if I don’t know what it is you don’t have. If you leave me a question about a specific thing I will try to respond.
