This recipe is from Season 3 of 5 Ingredient Fix


  • 4 English cut beef short ribs, trimmed (roughly 8 ounces each)

  • Kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper

  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided

  • 1 bottle full bodied red wine, such as Cabernet

  • 4 cups low-sodium vegetable stock

  • 4 cloves garlic, peeled and smashed


  • 1.

    Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.

  • 2.

    Pat ribs dry with paper towels and season with salt and pepper on all sides.

  • 3.

    Heat 2 tablespoons of butter in a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add the ribs and brown on all sides. Transfer the ribs to a plate, then add the garlic and stir until softened but not brown, about 1 minute. Carefully pour in the wine, bring to a boil and cook until reduced to about 1 cup. Add the ribs and any juices they have released back to the pot along with the stock. Reduce the heat and bring to a simmer, then cover the pot and transfer it to the oven, to braise, until the meat easily falls off the bone, about 3 hours.

  • 4.

    Transfer the ribs to a plate and tent with foil to keep warm. Strain the braising liquid through a fine mesh sieve into a saucepan set over medium-high heat. Simmer the liquid, skimming fat as necessary, until thickened, about 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and whisk in the remaining 1 tablespoon of butter. Taste for seasoning and adjust, if necessary. Transfer the ribs and sauce to a serving dish and serve.
