Here is a tasty recipe that you spend about 5 minutes browning then place into the oven for 3 hours and you are ready to go!
What you need:
3-4 pounds of beef short ribs (have the butcher cut them into thirds)
2 cups beef stock
3/4 cup original yakitori sauce
orange slices (if desired)
2 tablespoons of olive oil
What you need to do:
Place short ribs into ziplock bag with 3/4 cup of yakitori sauce and let sit overnight. While oven is pre-heating to 300 degrees, take short ribs and brown (on all sides) in two tablespoons of olive oil in a large oven-safe pan (such as a Le Creuset), about 5 minutes should do it. Once browned, add 2 cups of beef stock and orange slices (if desired) for a citrus kick. I did this on half of the ribs, cover and place into the oven for 3 hours. At some point, you can start your rice and the your choice of vegetable so that they will be ready when the ribs come out of the oven. I left the orange slice on just for show, you should remove them prior to serving.
