Happy Friday Y’all!
Braised beef short ribs, even as I think about preparing them my mouth is watering because I know the end result will be delicious. Beef short ribs are so succulent, juicy, and meaty. What’s the best thing about preparing this delicious dish???? It’s so easy and I can’t help thinking to myself, why I don’t make them more often??? They’re so flavorful and tender and my family absolutely loves them. Whenever I make them I never have any leftovers.
I love these braised beef short ribs over a bed of white rice, or over some creamy buttery mashed potatoes, or with any vegetable. I can honestly say this is one of the best meals that I have ever made and eaten. So let’s get started, because braised beef short ribs are what’s cooking.
As always before we start cooking we need a list of ingredients.
-Extra Virgin Olive Oil
-2 tablespoons of Unsalted butter
Marinating the Short Ribs
Before, I begin to cook my short ribs I’ve allowed them to marinate for at least 24 hours. You don’t necessarily have to marinate them, this is something that I do. I marinate them with meat tenderizer, salt, pepper, Adobo seasoning, and 1 tablespoon of olive oil to truly enhance the flavor and to tenderize the meat.
Drudging the Ribs
Once my beef short ribs have finished marinating, I drudge them in flour.
After the ribs have been drudged, they are ready to be seared.
Searing the Beef Short Ribs
Now, that I have finished drudging my beef short ribs. I’m going to use 2 tablespoons of butter and 2 tablespoons of olive oil. In a large sauce pan on high heat, in order to sear them.
Then, I add my ribs and began to sear them on all sides.
After the ribs have been seared you will take them out of the pan and set them aside, so you can braise them.
Making the Gravy
Next, add 2 tablespoons of flour rib drippings left in the pan.
Chopping the Onion
I decided to use half an onion to add to my short ribs.
Once I’ve peeled and washed my onion, I began to cut it in half.
Sautéing the Onion
Now that your drippings have turned brown, add your onions to sauté.
You will stir the onions until they become translucent.
Then, you add the entire box of beef broth to the onions.
Cooking the Braised Short Ribs
If you prefer a thicker gravy feel free to add 1 tablespoon of cornstarch, and 2 tablespoons of water mixed together. Add the mixture slowly to the gravy.
Then, add a lid, let simmer on low heat for an hour or until the meat becomes fork tender.
Braised Beef Short Ribs
Whenever your short ribs are finished, you can place them in a serving dish.
