Braised Short Ribs
Short Ribs are one of my favorite cuts of beef. They cook up so tender and full of flavor. The meat just falls off the bone. It is comfort food that is perfect for a cold winter day. Short Ribs tend to be expensive but I tend to hang out in the clearance meat section and I jump on any expensive cuts of meat that suddenly become affordable! This recipe serves two but can easily be doubled for more.
4 Beef Short Ribs
1 C Red Wine
3 C Beef Broth
2 Garlic Cloves, Crushed
1/2 Red Onion, Chopped
2 TBSP Olive Oil
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Heat olive oil in dutch oven. While olive oil is heating, season short ribs with salt, pepper and garlic. Brown short ribs on all sides. Once beef is browned add onion and garlic. Pour red wine and beef broth over beef and stir.
Cover dutch oven and place in oven for 2 1/2 hours.
Gravy can be served as is or thickened with a roux or corn starch slurry. Enjoy!
