Braised Beef Short Ribs

Braised Beef Short Ribs Barbara Bakes

Beef Short Ribs were on sale this week at my favorite grocery store. I’d never cooked them before so of course, I went on an Internet search for a fabulous recipe. There were several short rib recipes that sounded great, but Elise, at Simply Recipes, raved about her father’s Braised Beef Short Ribs. Now I’m going to rave about them too!

These are the most tender, flavorful short ribs I’ve ever tasted. My husband could not find enough ways to say how much he loved these succulent, fall-off-the-bone tender ribs. I served the short ribs with one of our favorite sides dishes, Caramelized Onion Mashed Potatoes.

The ribs are not hard to make, but are time consuming. On day one you brown the ribs, sauté the vegetables, and braise the ribs, covered, in the oven for several hours. Then the ribs need to be refrigerated overnight. The next day, once the fat is removed, you cook the ribs again on the stove for another hour until the sauce is reduced to a thick, delicious, flavorful glaze. Definitely time consuming, but oh so worth it!
