These ribs are incredibly tender, flavorful and easy to prepare! The rich sauce is perfect for dipping crusty bread or serving over rice, polenta, mashed cauliflower or mashed potatoes.
This dish has a spot in our regular dinner rotation because the whole family loves it. It’s also suitable for special occasions or dinner guests. We usually make mashed potatoes, broccoli, and a green salad to round out the meal.
Long-cooking dishes like this one are a favorite of busy families and gourmets alike; all the preparation is done hours before things get crazy. At 5 or 6 when the family is hungry or even “hangry” (hope not!), the situation is immediately defused by pulling a delectable meal out of the oven--like magic! Also, the smell throughout the house all afternoon is wonderful and can brighten the mood of everyone in it.
One variation that is delicious is adding sliced mushrooms to the pot before it goes into the oven; all types of mushrooms blend well with the flavors of the dish. If you don’t want to use red wine it's fine to substitute with more beef broth.
Whether you are a fan of short ribs or have never tried them, you must try this recipe! Let us know how you like it!
