Braised Short Ribs with Celery-Root Pancakes
Executive chef Jeff Armstrong's braised short ribs are a big seller at 17 at the Sam Houston Hotel in Houston. That's good news for the restaurant—short ribs are an inexpensive cut, so profit margins are high—and good news for anyone interested in trying Marcia Kiesel's adaptation. We braise the meat until it's fork-tender and succulent, then pair it with crisp celery-root pancakes and soft, buttery cipollini onions.
