  • 3 pounds boneless beef short ribs * trimmed of excess fat
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 6 garlic cloves * minced
  • 2 cups red wine
  • 1 cup beef stock * gluten free if necessary
  • 2 cups carrots
  • 1 tablespoon dried thyme


  • Preheat oven to 300°F. Season the short ribs with salt and pepper.
  • Heat the olive oil in a large Dutch oven over medium high heat.
  • Add the beef ribs, in batches, and sear on all sides until well browned, about 4 minutes per side. Transfer to a bowl, until all of the ribs are done.
  • Reduce the heat to medium and add the garlic. Cook, until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  • Add the wine and turn the heat back up to medium-high. Simmer until reduced by half.
  • Add the broth or stock, carrots, and thyme., the the beef and any juices that have accumulated in the bowl.
  • Cover and bring to a simmer, then transfer to the oven for approximately 2 1/2 hours, turning the meat halfway through cooking.
  • Serve over mashed potatoes, if desired.


Tips and Techniques for the Best Red Wine Braised Short Ribs

  • If you don’t have a Dutch Oven, you can brown the ribs in a skillet, then transfer them to a baking dish instead.
  • Make this dish lower in carbs by serving the ribs over cauliflower rice.
  • Store leftovers in an air-tight container in the refrigerator. Use within 3-4 days.
