Slow-Roasted Beef Ribs

Rating: 5 stars 2
Not just any beef ribs, these are dino ribs from the short plate section of a cow's rib cage. Typically, they are cut into shorter lengths—about 12 inches long—and sold as beef short ribs. Martha seasons them with salt and pepper, and browns them on the stovetop. Then she covers the roasting pan with parchment paper and aluminum foil to help keep them tender while they slow roast for about 4 hours in the oven. They're finished simply with a squeeze of lemon juice, some green olives, and grated fresh horseradish.
