Learn how to cook short ribs with this basic recipe passed down to me from my mom and grandmother. I changed it a little, and you can too. For instance, you can braise the beef ribs in almost any liquid. The short ribs cook for hours in a flavorful broth and turn out delicious and tender every time.

  • Heat olive oil and butter in a large skillet or Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Cook ribs until browned, about 5 minutes per side. Remove ribs and set aside.

  • Add onion and garlic to the skillet; cook and stir until onion is tender, about 5 minutes. Return ribs to the skillet. Pour in beer while scraping the browned bits of food off the bottom of the pan. Pour in beef stock.

  • Cover and simmer over low heat until ribs are very tender, about 2 hours.

Tips

If your ribs are very fatty (which most tend to be), you can let the sauce cool and skim the fat off the top before serving.
