Slow Braised Beef Short Ribs

Yields: 4 servings


4 lb beef short ribs
2 celery stalks
1 medium onion
4 carrots
20 black peppercorns 1 fresh thyme sprig 4 bay leaves 2 qt beef bouillon (enough to cover short ribs)


  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  • Place the short ribs in a deep baking dish. Bake for 30 minutes or until the ribs have browned. Remove from oven.
  • In the same pan, add the dry ingredients over the short ribs.
  • Pour the bouillon over the ribs, making sure the liquid covers the ribs by at least 1/2 inch.
  • Cover the pan with foil and seal as well as you can.
  • Reduce the temperature of the oven to 325 degrees and place the pan of short ribs on the center rack.
  • Roast for 3 1/2 to 4 hours. The ribs should be fork tender and falling off the bone.
  • Remove the short ribs from the liquid and keep warm.
  • Place braising liquid on the stove and reduce it over high heat until the liquid is the consistency of sauce.
  • Strain the sauce and season with salt and pepper. Pour over the ribs.
