Short ribs are one of our favorite meals to cook in Suvie because the long cook time needed to achieve the melt-in-your-mouth tender meat doesn’t need to interfere with a busy schedule. This slow and low braise is perfect for dinner with friends or family and the leftovers are fantastic the next day. Cooking the mushrooms in advance dehydrates them slightly and allows them to absorb more of the braising liquid. The short ribs and mushrooms will be fork tender and perfect over the blank canvas of jasmine rice. Make sure to ladle some extra braising liquid over the meat and rice for a soy and fish sauce umami boost.
