  • 2-3 lbs beef short ribs
  • 2 tablespoon butter or ghee
  • 3 medium tomatoes, diced
  • 1 white onion, diced
  • 3 cups broth (chicken broth, beef broth or vegetable broth all work)
  • 1 cup dry red wine
  • 1 tablespoon butter or ghee
  • 2 tablespoon rosemary
  • 1 tablespoon thyme
  • sea salt (to taste)
  • pepper (to taste)


  • Preheat your oven to 325 F.
  • Cut your ribs between each bone to create individual sized ribs.
  • Place a large frying pan on medium heat on the stove and cook bacon fat, onions and tomatoes for a couple minutes, until tomatoes start to break down.
  • In the same pan as your onions and tomatoes add the short ribs and braise for 1-2 minutes per side.
  • Place the contents of the saucepan and the remaining ingredients into a roasting pan (lid on) and cook at 325F for 2 1/2 hours. You can stir these a couple times if you like.
  • Serve and enjoy!


  1. Make sure and use a large roaster or Dutch oven so these can braise nicely in the oven.
  2. Nutritional values are an estimate and will vary depending on the exact ingredients used. 
  3. Store any leftovers in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
