Braised Cabernet Beef Short Ribs

"This recipe uses boneless beef short ribs and, after browning, can be made either in a covered dish in the oven or in your slow cooker. The short ribs turn out extremely tender and flavorful. I normally serve this dish over white rice."

  1. Season ribs with salt, garlic powder, and black pepper. Sprinkle flour over both sides of the ribs.
  2. Heat oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Cook about half the garlic in the hot oil until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes; add short ribs and cook until completely browned, 2 to 3 minutes per side.
  3. Pour beef broth and wine into the pot; bring to a boil while scraping the browned bits of food off of the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon. Transfer ribs and liquid to the crock of your slow cooker; put remaining garlic and sliced onion atop the ribs.
  4. Cook on Low for 5 hours. Remove ribs to a wide and shallow serving bowl. Ladle liquid from crock into a large skillet.
  5. Bring the liquid in a skillet to a boil and cook until reduced in volume by half, 5 to 7 minutes. Pour sauce over the ribs and turn ribs to coat.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Instead of putting into a slow cooker, you can bake in the oven at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 2 hours.

This was wonderful! The meat was tender and tasty and the sauce made it perfect yo serve over brown rice. I added mixed veggies and a homemade roll for a great winter evening dinner.

I can't even give it one star.

This is a great recipe for those who like bland food. The meat was fall-apart delicious, but it lacked flavor. I will try again adding different spices.

I’m not sure why this got some bad reviews because the recipe worked great for me. I omitted the fresh garlic and found that the powdered garlic alone provided plenty of garlic flavor. I think t...

I added extra garlic, used homemade bone broth and it was only so-so. I would only use again with significant additions.
