Braising...a question

hncreature | Sep 30, 2007 08:50 AM

I was braising(for the first time) some beef short ribs and it asked for 2 bottles of wine as the liquid for 8-9 lbs of ribs - I cut the recipe in half...including the wine...and cooked for 2 hours - Needless to say the liquid was so cooked down and scorched that I had no liquid for the sauce

The question is should I have not cut the liquid in half and still used the 2 bottles even though I cut the amount of ribs in half - Is it ok to monitor the meat cooking and add liquid as needed or just follow the suggested amount?
