I made these VERY yummy braised short ribs last weekend and they were a huge hit among our guests. It was super easy to make and soooo good. I served them with mashed potatoes and grilled asparagus. The recipe is actually from Olive Garden's website (thanks Doug and Kellie).
Note: the picture above is not what mine looked like. I forgot to take a picture.
3-4 lb(s) boneless beef short ribs*
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
2 medium yellow onions, chopped
4 large garlic cloves, minced
2 cup(s) Chianti wine
1 32-oz can crushed tomatoes
3 cup(s) beef broth
2 tsp fresh rosemary, chopped
*Your grocery store butcher can cut into individual ribs and de-bone.
DirectionsPat the short ribs dry and season with salt and pepper.
Coat a large, nonstick pan with olive oil. Sauté the short rib pieces over medium-high heat for about two to three minutes on each side or until brown. When finished, transfer the short ribs to a bowl.
Next, add the onions to the pan and cook over medium heat for approximately three minutes. Once the onions are translucent, add the garlic and cook for one minute.
Add the Chianti, rosemary, beef broth and tomatoes to the pan one at a time, allowing the liquid to evaporate partially before each addition (about two minutes).
Return the short ribs to the pan, including any juices that might have accumulated in the bowl. Cover and let simmer for three hours on low heat to complete the braising process.
Remove the short ribs from the pan and boil the liquid until it’s reduced by half, about 10 minutes.
Return the short ribs to the pan and heat thoroughly.
Serve with potatoes or risotto and vegetables.
