Martha's version of this classic dish layers succulent beef short ribs with caramelized onions and colorful spiced basmati rice -- it's fit for any celebratory meal.
To ensure everything is ready at the same time, we recommend preparing the tomato sauce and caramelized onions while the beef is simmering. Prep the ingredients for the rice while the beef is simmering as well. Once the beef has simmered for 2 1/2 hours, begin soaking the rice. You'll want to cook the rice while you are browning the meat.
