I get more “WOW” comments from people enjoying these Braised Short Ribs than almost any other recipe! The best part about them is how EASY they are to make, cooked in just one pot with carrots and fresh herbs.

This is the perfect meal for Sunday dinner, a special occasion, or when having company over and you don’t want to slave away in the kitchen. Other easy, gourmet meals I love include Lemon Chicken Piccata and Panang Curry.

pounds bone-in beef short ribs, cut crosswise into 2-inch pieces
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
3tablespoons vegetable oil
3medium onions, chopped
3medium carrots, peeled, chopped
2celery stalks, chopped
3tablespoons all-purpose flour
1tablespoon tomato paste
1750 ml bottle dry red wine (preferably Cabernet Sauvignon)
10sprigs flat-leaf parsley
8sprigs thyme
4sprigs oregano
2sprigs rosemary
2fresh or dried bay leaves
1head of garlic, halved crosswise
4cups low-salt beef stock


Step 1
Preheat oven to 350°. Season short ribs with salt and pepper. Heat oil in a large Dutch oven over medium-high. Working in 2 batches, brown short ribs on all sides, about 8 minutes per batch. Transfer short ribs to a plate. Pour off all but 3 Tbsp. drippings from pot.

Step 2
Add onions, carrots, and celery to pot and cook over medium-high heat, stirring often, until onions are browned, about 5 minutes. Add flour and tomato paste; cook, stirring constantly, until well combined and deep red, 2-3 minutes. Stir in wine, then add short ribs with any accumulated juices. Bring to a boil; lower heat to medium and simmer until wine is reduced by half, about 25 minutes. Add all herbs to pot along with garlic. Stir in stock. Bring to a boil, cover, and transfer to oven.

Step 3
Cook until short ribs are tender, 2–2½ hours. Transfer short ribs to a platter. Strain sauce from pot into a measuring cup. Spoon fat from surface of sauce and discard; season sauce to taste with salt and pepper. Serve in shallow bowls over mashed potatoes with sauce spooned over.
