If you've never had beef short ribs before, you're missing out on one of life's great pleasures. Beef short ribs should be so tender that the meat almost falls off the bone with a fork. Serve them with soft Parmesan polenta as suggested here, or they are also delicious with creamy mashed potatoes.
The perfect family starter dish that serves 4-6 people for under €10 in total. To serve as a main course just add cabbage, fennel and peanut slaw (recipe at the end).
