Tom Colicchio’s short rib recipe has been in my Cook ASAP Bookmark folder for about 6 months. I really wanted to make these for Christmas but they were not on sale, and well, I waited, and waited.
Finally last week I asked my butcher if they over go on sale, he says they do and I must of some how over looked them. I usually see a pack of 4 of them, for around 10 dollars, I hardly call that a sale. Any whoo the butcher was nice enough to discount some for me that were going to be past there date the following day. I looked at them, asked him if I could smell them. He obliged and cut open the plastic wrap. They smelled fine, still super red and smelled like healthy cow meat. So I purchased two packs of them at 75% off. Get to know your meat, smell it, touch it, you will know when it is past it’s prime if you know how it feels and smells when it is not.
