How to Make Classic Braised Beef Short Ribs



6 (about 4 pounds) bone-in short ribs

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

1/2 white onion diced

2 to 3 cloves garlic crushed

1 cup beef broth

2 tablespoons worcestershire sauce

1 sprig fresh rosemary




  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Season all sides of the short ribs with salt and pepper.
  3. Heat a heavy, oven-safe pot over high heat. Add in olive oil and allow to heat briefly. Sear short ribs in olive oil, about 1 minute per side. Remove from pot and set aside.
  4. Add in onion and saute 2 to 3 minutes. Add in garlic and saute 1 minute more.
  5. Pour in beef broth and Worcestershire sauce. Bring to a simmer. Add in meat. Place a rosemary sprig on top.
  6. Cover and transfer to preheated oven for about 2.5 hours, until meat is tender.
