Braised Short Ribs with Balsamic Tomato Sauce

Slow cooked, fall-off-the-bone tender short ribs served with a tart and sweet balsamic tomato parm sauce. Put them over some thyme mashed potatoes and you have a great comfort meal!

Ingredients

Ribs:

6
bone-in beef short ribs
1
cup chopped onion
1
cup chopped celery
1
cup chopped carrots
3
cloves diced garlic
1
cup balsamic vinegar
2
tablespoons worcestershire sauce
2
cups beer (or water)

Tomato sauce:

1
(28 oz) can Muir Glen™ diced tomatoes
1
cup parmesan cheese
3/4
cup balsamic vinegar
1/4
cup diced onion
2
cloves diced garlic
2
tablespoons sugar

Potatoes

4
large yukon gold potatoes
1
cup cream
4
tablespoons butter
6
sprigs thyme

Directions

  • 1 For the ribs, sear them until brown on all sides and remove from pan. Next, add the veggies and cook about 10 minutes, followed by the garlic. Add the liquid ingredients next and stir well, scraping the bottom of the pan to get any browned bits.
  • 2 Return the ribs to the pan and place in the oven with the cover on but slightly to the side. Cook at 275°F for 3 hours or until they are very tender.
  • 3 With about 45 minutes left on the ribs, start the potatoes. Cut them into 8ths and place them in a pot with the cream, butter and thyme. Simmer until the potatoes are soft, then remove the thyme and mash it up!
  • 4 Meanwhile for the tomato sauce, brown up the onion in some olive oil, then add the garlic, followed by the rest of the ingredients. Simmer and allow to slightly reduce until the the ribs are ready.
  • 5 To plate, first put the potatoes on the bottom of the plate, then top with a short rib and a nice scoop of the tomato sauce.

Beef short ribs are easily my favorite type of meat from October through March (skirt steak takes over during the other months). Today’s Braised Short Ribs with Balsamic Tomato Sauce recipe is full of the deep dark flavors that pair with short ribs so well: Balsamic, Parmesan, and tomatoes.
