Three Times A Charm
(NAPSA) - There's a simple way to cut down the amount of time you spend in the supermarket and the kitchen. Instead of shopping to create unique recipes every day of the week, use a variation on one theme. You can stretch meals, budget and time by cooking a main recipe once and using it two or three times throughout the week in different forms.
From soups to sandwiches, there's an enormous amount of delicious dining opportunities here. Slather the leftover short rib meat with BBQ sauce and put it on a whole grain bun for sandwiches the next day. Later in the week, you're a step ahead on a quick minestrone. There you go: one meat, three meals, using up every last bit of flavor.
Heat oil in a large high-sided saute pan over medium-high heat. Season ribs with salt and pepper, then dredge in flour. Place ribs in pan and cook for 2-4 minutes on each side until well-browned.
Transfer browned ribs to a clean plate and stir peppers and onions into pan. Cook for 3-4 minutes until slightly browned, then pour in beef stock, red wine, California Black Ripe Olives and marjoram and bring to a boil.
Return ribs to pan, cover and cook on a low simmer for 3 hours, turning meat every hour to evenly cook until meat is easily pulled from the bones.
