Can't Get There? 56 Recipes from Famous Restaurants

The Balthazar Cookbook

Balthazar: New York, N.Y.

Braised Short Ribs

This is Balthazar's Saturday-night plat du jour and, because its preparation involves the basics of French cooking, it’s also the first dish the restaurant teaches its young cooks: There’s the browning of the meat, the softening of the mirepoix, the reduction of wine, and the long braise in stock. It’s a forgiving dish that calls for patience rather than precision. It’s also the ideal meal to make ahead of time, as it benefits greatly from a night’s rest. Serve with garlic mashed potatoes and pan-roasted vegetables.
