This is comfort food at its finest!
Short ribs are one of those magical meats that you just really can’t overcook. The longer they braise, the more deliciously tender and moist they become. Braise is kind of a fancy way of saying that you’re gonna stew something. The hardest thing about braising is to plan ahead enough to allow yourself plenty of time for it to go in the oven. Kinda like planning a crockpot meal… as long as you start early enough in the day, you’re golden!
All kinds of liquids are great for braises: wine, beer, any kind of broth, colas, or even water. Here I pair dark beer with chicken broth for delightful results! The addition of onions, garlic, carrots, and thyme round out the flavors, and turn it into a whole meal in one pot!
