  • Meat tenderizer
  • Cornstarch
  • 1 Onion
  • Extra Virgin Olive oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Adobe Seasoning
  • 2 tablespoons Unsalted Butter
  • Flour
  • 1 box Beef Broth


  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Next, add 2 tablespoons of flour to the rib drippings left in the pan.
  • Once I've peeled and washed my onion, I began to cut it in half.
  • 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.
  • 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 and half or until the meat becomes fork tender.
  • Whenever your short ribs are finished, you can place them in a serving dish.


In this recipe you can marinate the beef short ribs overnight for 24 hours. Or you  can marinate the same day with any seasoning of your choice.
