Easter beef short ribs and breaking a tooth

Beef short ribs apparently aren’t a thing on Good Friday. I’m not really sure why beef is taboo and why everyone goes for seafood. I mean I love seafood but it’s so expensive.

This is a simple and easy version of tender fall off the bone beef short ribs. A real winner except that as I was gnawing a little piece of meat off the bone I broke a molar.

  7. Half an hour before the three hours, cook the cabbage and broccolini in boiling water

  9. Remove the roasting tray and allow the ribs to rest for fifteen minutes

  10. Plate up the vegetables in a shallow bowl and then add the ribs on top

  11. Shoot a photograph and tuck in

  12. Finish the vegetables soaked in meat juices first and then eat the meat from the ribs and gnaw the meat that is attached to the bone and break off a tooth and feel quite sad about the amount of money it's going to cost to repair

  13. Contemplate life and then smile knowing that it's pay week next week

  14. Post the story to Facebook and Twitter and read sympathetic replies and some funny ones about how this is a lesson for eating meat on Good Friday

  15. Clean the dishes and wonder just how painful will it be to brush my teeth tonight

  16. Further, meditate on the destiny of the large amount of animal flesh that is sitting in my stomach being churned and chemically digested

  17. Find solace in the fact that I had cabbage and I'll enjoy farting in bed later tonight

  18. I'd love it if you could share this recipe on social media, especially Facebook and Twitter. Thanks!

Lunch

For lunch today I made a streaky bacon, pâté and smoked cheese cheeseburger with a hot cross bun.

  1. Well, that didn’t end very well did it, baked beans on toast for you for the next month so you can line the pockets of your dentist, then again the farting could be a problem.
    p.s. Ribs look amazing.

  2. Good food day Gaz but, breaking a tooth 🙁 From the looks of it, it looks like half the molar came out. Hope it doesn’t hurt now and it’s just a funny feeling in the mouth. Get it checked out soon :/

    1. Thanks Lorraine, I hope I can get into a dentist next week.
      I truly love butter and Good Friday is the perfect day to express my devotion 😃😂🤣

  3. I would highly recommend keeping windows open, if you are going to have repercussions from eating cabbage. There is an OTC med called Beano…wonder if that would help.

    1. I’m grateful I’m not Roman Catholic. The broken tooth did however stymie me a little. So I added bacon to my soup 😃
