      Let the ribs rest 10 minutes in their juices, then remove them from the pot. Strain the broth, pressing down on the vegetables with a ladle to extract all the juices. Discard the solids.
    • 6

      Reduce the sauce on stove top over medium-high heat until slightly thickened. Taste for seasoning. Add the short ribs back to the sauce and keep warm until ready to serve.
    • 7

      For the grits: Combine water, milk, cream, butter, and salt in a medium saucepan over medium heat and bring to a simmer.
    • 8

      While whisking, add in the grits and continue to whisk to remove any lumps.
    • 9

      Bring to a simmer and reduce heat to medium-low where the grits are just bubbling. Cook for 10-15 minutes until the moisture is absorbed and the grits are al dente. Add more water if needed until grits are cooked through. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

      To serve, lay short ribs on a bed of grits and spoon extra braising liquid over the top. Enjoy!
