How To Make Red Wine Braised Beef Short Ribs

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.

Cook bacon in a large Dutch oven over medium-low heat until bacon is crisp. Drain on a paper towel. (Use as bacon bits or for a sandwich later.) Reserve pan drippings in pan.

Sprinkle the short ribs with the salt and pepper; sear in the hot bacon drippings on all sides until well browned, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove the short ribs from the pot.

Smash the garlic cloves and add to the pot; saute for about a minute to flavor the oil. Add the onions, carrots, and mushrooms to the drippings in the pan. Cook the vegetables about 7 to 10 minutes, or until they have released their liquid. Remove the vegetables from the pan with a slotted spoon; discard whole garlic cloves.

Add the tomato paste to the pan and allow it to brown. Before the tomato paste starts to burn, stir 2 cups of the chicken broth and 1 ½ cups of the red wine. Cook, stirring often, over high heat for about 10 minutes or until the liquid is reduced in half. Turn off the heat; stir in the vegetables until well combined.

Remove the stems from the rosemary and thyme; discard. Take out the ribs; place them on a plate a wrap in aluminum foil to keep warm. Pour vegetables through a fine mesh strainer into a bowl, reserving the liquid. Reserve vegetables and keep warm with the ribs.

Let the cooking liquid stand for about 10 minutes. Using a spoon, skim the fat from top of the liquid; discard.

Make the Gravy:

In the same Dutch oven over medium heat, melt the butter. Stir the flour into the melted butter; cook stirring constantly, for about 2 minutes. Slowly stir the cooking liquid back into the pot, along with the remaining ½ cup of chicken broth and remaining ½ cup wine. Cook for 10 more minutes or until the liquid has thickened. Stir vegetables into the sauce.

I made a few modifications to the original recipe, by adding garlic and fresh thyme. Beef and garlic are a wonderful combination and the thyme has such a wonderful fragrance and pairs perfectly with the rosemary. 

Certainly, the leftover wine was consumed with this meal. As I learned many moons ago from Justin Wilson “Never cook with a wine you wouldn’t drink!”

Enjoy the ribs and the wine!
