Are Braised Beef Short Ribs Hard to Make?

Contrary to popular opinion, beef short ribs are actually easy to make. By the same token, you need to make sure that you have some time on hand. For instance, to make these braised beef short ribs in the oven, I had to season, sear, make the sauce, and then bake. You can skip any of these steps if you want a flavorful, tasty beef. This isn’t the kind of recipe that you want to bake and then season afterward. 

I first saw a braised short ribs recipe when watching the Food Network. I was like, wow, I love the outcome of that. It looked a bit cumbersome, and they used red wine. Ultimately, I wanted mine without red wine or brown sugar, and I made it happen. All in all, braised beef short ribs are not hard to make, and you will see why!

  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • ½ teaspoon of dry thyme
  • ¼ teaspoon curry powder
  • 1 teaspoon of Bullion seasoning powder
  • 1 can (6 oz) tomato paste
  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • Ingredients to season the meat before searing: salt, black pepper, ½ teaspoon bullion seasoning, a dash of dry thyme and powdered curry.

HOW MAKE BRAISED BEEF SHORT RIBS WITHOUT RED WINE:

  1. Wash and clean the meat; dry with a paper towel.
  2. Season with salt, black pepper, ½ teaspoon bullion seasoning, a dash of dry thyme, and powdered curry.
  3. Place a pan on the stove, add about 2 tablespoons olive oil. Allow to heat up and gently place the short ribs. Sear in all sides; remove and put into a baking dish.
  4. Preheat oven to 325
  5. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil into the pan, and add the onions and garlic cloves. Cook stirring for 2 minutes and add the seasonings (salt, black pepper, bullion, thyme, and curry); combine very well with the onions/garlic.

HOW TO STORE LEFTOVER:

Sometimes I love making this braised beef short ribs recipe a day before. In reality, it tastes better that way. The best way to store leftover beef short ribs would be in the refrigerator. Place them in a container (including the sauce), and then keep them inside the fridge for a couple of days.

You can also store them in the freezer for up to 3 months. Ensure to allow the ribs to thaw before heating up to serve.

Beef Short Ribs FAQs

What cut of meat is braised short rib? 

Short ribs come from the beef chuck of the cow near the breastbone.

Can you braise short ribs too long? 

If you are wondering if you can overcook the short ribs, then the answer is NO! The longer you braise the beef short ribs, the more tender and delicious they become. My tip would be to ensure that you have liquid and that the beef ribs aren’t just drying up. Typically cook mine in the oven between 2 – 3 hours. This time would vary with temperature.

Do you have to braise short ribs? 

You necessarily do not have to braise the short ribs; however, braising is the best way to cook them. It cooks for a long time, releases tons of flavors, and becomes very tender and juicy. Most often, braised beef short ribs are usually fall-off-the-bone tender and tasty!

How do you tell when braised short ribs are done? 

You will instantly know that the meat is ready when they are fork-tender and almost falling off the bone. About 2½ hours or so, I cooked these beef short ribs for exactly 2½ hours. If your meat feels hard, add more stock and cook it at low temperature for more time.  

Must I use Red Wine to Make Braised Short Ribs?

No, you don’t need red wine to make braised beef short ribs. As you can see this recipe uses no wine, and yet it came out so good!
