A Sweet New Year, A Week Late.

First, It Seams To Be Sew is hosting a giveaway! Go see!

Now, Good Morning.. First cuppa, be kind:)  I'm doing pretty good at my 7 AM sewing starts. :::say that 3 times fast whenu wake up:::: Altho I must say that my legs are quite sore. Standing so long seems to be getting harder. No worries, matches my sore right side eh?
Today I am making this dish which we all love and comes from my BFF Blima's Bubbie ( go ahead, 3 times fast). Typically its made for Jewish New Year, except here, its made whenever I have a sweet/savory tooth. ( shock, daily) No really, I make it at least 3 or 4 imes a year. Especially when I find English short ribs on sale and very "meaty". Give it a try, you will here massive humming at the dinner table!


2 lbs short ribs ( or more)
1/2 cup water
2 lb carrots, peeled & sliced
2 sweet potatoes, quartered,
2 whole onions
1 cup honey or brown sugar (more if desired) I use ½ cup br. sugar, 1/2 cup honey. (cant make up my mind?) To clarify: I mix 1/2 cup honey and 1/2 cup brn sugar together, then pour over mixture before roasting.
3/4 lb prunes (about a cup) make sure no pits
Juice of 1/2 lemon
salt and pepper to taste (lots of fresh black pepper)

Sprinkle short ribs with salt and pepper, in a fry pan with 2 tablespoons hot oil, sear on all sides, remove and place in roasting pan with all other ingredients.
Cover and cook for 2 hours at 350. Uncover, stir and let brown about 1 hour more.
If the sauce hasn’t thickened enough add 2 tablespoons of flour to ¼ cup of cold water, stir until smooth, add to tzimmes, mix well and bake for a few minutes more.

*Noteworthy TIP:
When I SEAR the ribs, I drench them in flour first.( like your pot roast) This makes the last step unnessesary. I just didnt want to change Bubbie's recipe written.

Boy, my mouth is watering, but just checking - do you ADD the brown sugar after it has cooked 2 hours?

Can't wait to try it.

Thanks for the recipe.

Mix the 2 together Sharyn,(honey brn sugar) then pour over mixture at beginning of oven time.. Cook 2 hours, stir, smooth, swoon over the aroma, and cook one more hour.
