Surprisinly Good, Member marcelastorage

I've always been hesitant of using the oven to cook anything, especially meat! This is the first time use the short ribs cut so looked up how to cook it and I found this recipe that mentioned less time that the other recepies. Meat was surprisingly tender and had a very nice taste. The Thyme gave it a nice kick! I used red bell pepper instead the green and it worked fine. Make sure to cover it well so it'll cook the ends of the rice well...... enjoy!
