There’s nothing more cozy than a plate of tender short ribs and mashed potatoes. I wanted to create a fun recipe that is a bit out of the box from what someone would typically serve around the holidays. The result is a flavor bomb dish that will definitely impress your dinner guests! Plus it’s really simple to make, promise!
Searing meat before braising seals in juices and adds extra flavor, making your dish tastier. The braising liquid is given a super savory boost from the miso and soy sauce, which makes the most insane sauce to pour over top. The sweet potatoes also balance it out perfectly! It’s a must make.
I used Shiro Miso in this recipe, which is also known as white miso. Miso is made from soybeans that have been fermented with a large percentage of rice. It is usually a light beige color and has a sweet flavor. Miso is commonly used in Japanese cooking and is a great way to add a unique flavor to a variety of dishes, like soups, sauces and pasta. You can find it at most grocery stores, like Whole Foods and Target, and you can also order it on Amazon. It’s a great addition to your pantry!
You can find everything you need to make this recipe HERE, including the Cast Iron Braiser I used. I recommend this over other options as it spreads heat evenly, making sure your meat cooks perfectly tender and keeps all the flavors locked in. And it’s so versatile—works on the stove and in the oven, helping you cook amazing meals every time!
