  • 2-3  pounds beef short ribs
  • Salt and freshly cracked black pepper
  • 3 Tablespoons butter
  • 1 bottle red wine such as Cabernet or Pinot noir
  • 4 cups beef broth
  • 3 cloves garlic peeled and smashed


  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Pat ribs dry and salt and pepper all sides. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a large Dutch oven. Add ribs and brown on all sides. Remove ribs and add garlic until softened but not browned.
  • Pour in red wine, boil until it reduces to about 1 cup. Add ribs and any juices that have seeped out back in the post along with the beef broth.
  • Cover pot and put in the oven until the meat almost falls off bones about 3 hours.
  • After 3 hours. Remove pan from the oven. Scoop out ribs to a platter and cover to keep warm. Skim off any fat from top of the broth. Simmer about 10 minutes to thicken.
  • Add 1 tablespoon butter and whisk until melted. Taste and adjust seasoning if necessary. Put ribs back in the broth and serve.
