Did you know that the BBVG in-house butcher does custom orders? I hosted a lovely five-course dinner party for a friend’s birthday this weekend (see my Instagram @agsinspace for the other four courses!) and for the main course, I cooked a delicious red-wine-braised short rib. I called ahead and ordered enough short rib for eight of us (plan two pieces per person) and picked it up later that same day. It was fresh cut, locally sourced and ready to go!
For the meat preparation, I favour a hard sear followed by a nice low and slow cook. It’s a great meal to make for a dinner party as you don’t have to cook to order or time it to the minutes. Just pop it in your slow cooker and leave it on warm prior to serving. I served mine with whipped potatoes (with the jus from the rib!) and gorgeous curry roasted multi-colour carrots.
