These red wine braised short ribs make me feel like such a chef. Although this recipe takes a little longer to make (braising means something is slowly cooked for hours) most of the time is spent in the oven cooking so once your prep is done, you just leave it in the oven to do its thing. And the prep is EASY!

If you make this recipe I promise everyone will think you’re a pro because the meat is so tender and the sauce is delicious enough to drink out of a cup. Paid it with your favorite sides (I think mashed potatoes and green beans or broccoli are the best) and you have a meal made in heaven. It’s become a household favorite over here and I’m excited to teach you how to make it. Let me know if you try and what you think!


  • 3-4 short ribs
  • Salt
  • Flour
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 2 carrots, roughly chopped
  • 2 stalks celery roughly chopped
  • 1 head of garlic cut in half
  • 1 bottle of red wine (preferably one you’d drink)
  • 1 box beef stock
  • 1/4 cup black peppercorns
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • Fresh herbs (I like rosemary and/or thyme)
  • Knob of butter


  1. Let your short ribs come to room temperature and then salt them generously
  2. Coat them in flour, shaking off any excess.
  3. Heat 2 Tbs oil in a Dutch oven or large stock pot on medium heat. Sear your short ribs, a few minutes on each side (about 2-3 min) and remove from the pot.
  4. Add your onion, carrot and celery to the pot and stir occasionally until onions are translucent. 
  5. Add the two halves of garlic, an entire bottle of red wine and box of stock.
  6. Add peppercorns, brown sugar, and herbs.
  7. Add short ribs back in and cover and place in the oven at 350° for 3 hours. 
  8. Remove pot from the oven and take short ribs out (you can slide the bones out now if you want)
  9. Remove all the solid ingredients from your liquid using a small strainer and simmer the red wine liquid in the pot on medium until reduced by half.
  10. Turn heat off and add a knob of butter, stirring it in until smooth. Strain out your liquid into a bowl or pouring cup to make sure all the solids are out.
  11. Plate your short ribs with mashed potatoes, green beans or broccolini and pour that delicious sauce over it all. 
  12. INHALE!
