Beef short ribs are slowly braised with Bloody Mary mix and red wine in this savory dish. I would normally use some garlic in this, but this recipe was developed for a good friend who is allergic to garlic. I serve this with homemade spaetzle.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Season the short ribs with salt and pepper, and set aside.

  • Heat an oven-proof Dutch oven, or wide, shallow pot with a lid over medium-high heat. Stir in the olive oil and butter until the butter has melted. Stir in the onion, and cook until the onion begins to soften, about 3 minutes. Add the leek, and continue cooking until the onion and leek are lightly browned. Remove and set aside.

  • Brown the short ribs in the hot Dutch oven until browned on all sides, about 3 minutes per side. Once browned, sprinkle the reserved onions over the ribs, pour in the wine, beef stock, tomatoes, and Bloody Mary mix. Nestle the carrot chunks among the ribs. Bring to a simmer, then cover, and place into the preheated oven.

  • Braise in the oven for 2 hours, then add the mushroom caps, recover, and continue cooking 1 hour more.

Interesting mix of ingredients and was a perfect way to use the last of the Bloody Mary mix left over from Thanksgiving day. Used a roast as that's all I had in the freezer and was not about to venture out in near blizzard/white out conditions for short ribs. Only two changes based on personal preference.... added garlic and used low sodium beef stock to counter the sodium in the Bloody Mary mix. Put all into the crockpot and let the smell permeate the house while watching the snow. Served over rice with a small green salad. Perfect antidote to turkey after Thanksgiving day. Thanks RCHEISS for the recipe! Read More

As I read the recipe, something kept niggling at the back of my consciousness. I couldn't quite put my finger on it. Then it hit me. There was no garlic in the dish!!! I wept! Then I added 5 cloves of finely chopped garlic to the leeks as I added them to the pot. That was the only change needed. This dish is TOTALLY a keeper! Don't you DARE pass this one up! Read More

OMG!!!!!!! This dish was absolutely AMAZING!!!! I had to make a couple of changes bc my dutch oven was only 3.1 liters. I followed the recipe exactly except only used 2 cups bloody mary mix, added 4 gloves smashed garlic. Other than that, I made no changes. This is the first recipe that I made in my new Dutch Oven. I served the ribs on the side and other ingredients on top of long grain wild rice with mashed potatoes on the side. I know... 2 starches but hubby wanted the mashed. Absolutely fabulous!!!! Thanks for a great recipe!!!! Read More

Loved this recipe! Didn't have any ribs on hand so I put a roast in the crockpot and threw all of the other ingredients on top. The aroma was wonderful all day and the whole family enjoyed. Thanks for a great tasting recipe! Read More

These short ribs were great! Suggest low sodium beef stock (bloody mary mix is loaded) 4 clove minced/crushed garlic 8 oz mushrooms (you can add the stems in also separately) and thicken at the end with 2-3 Tbs corn starch dissolved in water. Serve with/over thin egg noodles. Read More

Really good. I added garlic and I didn't have Bloody Mary Mix so I made my own using V8 Juice and celery salt whorchestershire sauce and tobasco to taste. I also forgot to add the can of tomatoes so it was thick but we ate it up served over rice. Read More
