One of my favorite comfort food is short ribs, or flanken.  Mouth-watering and soft as it falls off the bone, it is just what the doctor ordered on a cold or rainy winter’s night.  Most of the recipes can be made in a crock-pot or left on a low flame in a Dutch oven so the aroma fills your home but the actual effort is minimal.
