How to roast beef
Beef short ribs are like the most flavorful, delectable, tender, soft pot roast you can possibly imagine—but the meat is on a handy stick for your eating convenience. And really, if you make ‘em right, the stick is only incidental—the meat falls off the bone if you so much as breathe on it. Oh, is it ever a treat.
The crispiest, most flavorful roast potatoes you'll ever make. Large chunks of potato maximize the contrast between exterior and interior. Parboiling the potatoes in alkaline water breaks down their surfaces, creating tons of starchy slurry for added surface area and crunch. Infusing the oil with garlic and herbs gives the potato crust extra flavor.
