Braised Beef Short Ribs

Braised Beef Short Ribs

Stews and braises traditionally use poor cuts of meat to create a delicious meal. However, there is nothing wrong to “luxe” it up by using premium ingredients like Beef Short Ribs.

Braised Beef Short Ribs are one of the most delicious things to eat. And the leftovers are very versatile where you can shred it to stuff Ravioli or simply spread potato mash on bread and lay the shredded short ribs on to make a primo sandwich.

Casual Saturday Lunch

Braised Beef Short Ribs

I’ve begun to lose interest in Beef as a meat because the variety of beef out there has gotten boring; it’s always Wagyu this and Kobe that. Sadly, they all taste the same and they are all prepared, in my opinion, improperly for this breed of cattle.

Ryu Murakami once wrote that people are brand-conscious because they are unable to discern quality for themselves and hence rely on brands to tell what is good and whatnot. And in doing so, we lose the ability to think for ourselves.

Fat Cow at Camden Medical Centre


Have you ever had a piece of Otoro? It comes from the fattest part of a Tuna fish’s belly. Instead of the normal deep red, Otoro is whitish pink. If you put a small slice in your mouth, just on your tongue, it will slowly fall apart, without chewing, from your body heat. You can’t really tell that you’re eating fish but the texture is unctuous and sensual.

That’s as close I can describe eating a piece of A5 Wagyu. As Singapore’s powers-that-be relaxes its grip on beef imports (due to mad cow disease) and increasing affluence, which means, for better or worse, restaurants are putting Wagyu beef (Japanese or otherwise) to its menus. However, this introduces a big problem…
