I have a question about the recipe "Dan Barber's Braised Short Ribs" from amanda.

I've never purchased Madeira and see there are various types. Any suggestions for this recipe?

I'd go dry madeira or substitute dry sherry.

I actually just made this recipe a few weeks ago. What kind of Madeira did I use? The $20 bottle they handed me in the liquor store when I asked for a bottle of Madeira to use while braising short ribs.

I know that's a lame answer, but when it comes to cooking with liquor, I long ago learned that the flavors seem to show up in broad strokes so the details don't matter so much.

Peter, Well, if it's lame then I'm lame too. I pretty much took the same route you traveled while selecting my Madeira and my wine for this recipe. I think I was a little nervous because cooking meat is a rarity for me. Braising is taking place as I type. Hopefully they will taste as good as they smell. Thanks, Denise

You can also use marsala if you can't find madeira.
