The Best Recipe for Mouthwatering Braised Short Ribs

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.


-Meat Tenderizer


-1 Onion

-Extra Virgin Olive Oil



-Adobo Seasoning

-2 tablespoons of Unsalted butter


-Beef Broth

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

After the ribs have been seared you will take them out of the pan and set them aside,  so you can braise them.

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.
