Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Braised Short Ribs: Season each short rib generously with salt. Coat a pot large enough to accommodate all the meat and vegetables with olive oil and bring to a high heat.

  • Add the short ribs to the pan and brown very well, about 2 to 3 minutes per side. Do not overcrowd pan. Cook in batches, if necessary.

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

  • While the short ribs are browning, puree all the vegetables and garlic in the food processor until it forms a coarse paste.

  • When the short ribs are very brown on all sides, remove them from the pan.

  • Drain the fat, coat the bottom of same pan with fresh oil and add the pureed vegetables.

  • Season the vegetables generously with salt and brown until they are very dark and a crud has formed on the bottom of the pan, approximately 5 to 7 minutes.

  • Scrape the crud and let it reform.

  • Scrape the crud again and add the tomato paste.

  • Brown the tomato paste for 4 to 5 minutes.

  • Add the wine and scrape the bottom of the pan.

  • Lower the heat if things start to burn. Reduce the mixture by half.

  • Return the short ribs to the pan and add 2 cups water or until the water has just about covered the meat.

  • Add the thyme bundle and bay leaves.

  • Cover the pan and place in the preheated oven for 3 hours.

  • Check periodically during the cooking process and add more water, if needed.

  • Turn the ribs over halfway through the cooking time.

  • Remove lid during the last 20 minutes of cooking to let things get nice and brown and to let the sauce reduce. Serve with the braising liquid.

  • Roasted Garlic Horseradish Mashed: Blend the potatoes and horseradish together and serve with the short ribs.

If you're going to rip off another chef's recipe you could at least change one little thing about it before you claim it as your own. This recipe is from Anne Burrell's show Secrets of a Restaurant Chef on the Food Network and is a word for word replica of the recipe on that site. Shameful. Read More

I do a lot of cooking from scratch these days and this is hands down one of the best recipes I have ever made. So incredibly good. The flavours are incredible the vegetable puree makes a wonderful thick sauce - even my little kids loved this one. Can't wait to make this for my parents when they are visiting. Read More

Next time I will cut tomato paste by 1/2 and add beef broth. Flavor was quite good but consistency was too thick. Read More
