Slow Braised Beef Ribs

Slow Braised Beef Ribs

One thing I regret is not paying attention to my granny in the kitchen; she was the epitome of a woman. She could cook, clean, sew, and anything else you name it. I remember when she would be in the kitchen cooking I would be too consumed with watching television or doing school work and I would always tell her I’m going to have a maid I don’t need to learn how to cook. Well fast forward 25 years later, I think she would be super proud of me. I don’t have a maid and it took me a couple of years after I got married, but I have learned my way around the kitchen. I even have my mom and aunts calling me for my recipes. They go a little something like this…a pinch of this, oh a little of that or this, etc. (You not getting all of my secrets?)
I truly believe cooking comes from the heart and I can’t lie there are days when I hate cooking (especially when I’ve been traveling for work), but those days when I’m in my element–watch out.
As a traveling RN, I typically travel 3 to 4 days/week with 1 to 2 overnights /week. I love to prepare meals I can cook in the oven or my InstaPot it makes life so much easier and these meals make great leftovers. Here is one of my favorite go-to meals to start a busy work week.
