more freezer goodies

Some things from the freezer: two short ribs, one frozen block of short rib braising stock.

short ribs with carrots
When the stock is premade, this is really an easy thing to do. I browned the short ribs, deglazed the pan with some port, and threw the block in on low heat to melt. Then the short ribs went back in for a few hours, and then the carrots for the last half hour or so.
[short ribs, braising liquid (not exactly sure, but i think it has: water, tomato paste, red wine, parsley, thyme, onions, canned tomatoes), carrots, port]

blue cheese potato gratin
This a basic gratin, I threw the blue cheese on for the last 5 minutes and broiled it. I used whole milk instead of heavy cream, so it was much less rich than a traditional gratin, but it still had a luxurious mouthfeel.
[russet potato, milk, salt, pepper, blue cheese]

What a yummy dinner! I finally got around to using up 6 pounds of short ribs in my freezer last night. I have another 5 pounds to go. I've got to clear room for our sausage-making extravaganza!!
