Braised beef short ribs

IMG_3425Serves 4 hungry Canadians..

Excellent… easy. Slow cooking, great reminder of the bbq taste in the winter.

  • 1/3 cup (75 ml) flour,
  • salt and pepper to taste,
  • ½ tsp paprika,
  • 2-4 lbs (about 2 kg) beef short ribs, bone in,
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil.


  • 2 medium onions, chopped into large chunks,
  • ½ cup tomato sauce (I use what I have in the fridge, and adjust seasoning),
  • ½ cup bbq sauce (I use what I have in the fridge, and adjust seasoning),
  • 1 tbps molasses (I successfully used brown sugar instead),
  • 2 tbsp cider vinegar.

To do it:

  1. Combine flour, salt, pepper and paprika.
  2. Trim excess fat from ribs.
  3. Heat the frying pan with some oil in it.
  4. Set the oven to 275F (140C).
  5. Dredge ribs in flour mixture (I use plastic bag and shake&bake approach).
  6. Brown the meat on all sides and remove into a oven-proof casserole.
  7. Place onion on top of the meat.
  8. Whisk tomato sauce, bbq sauce, molasses and cider vinegar in a saucepan.
  9. Bring the sauce to boil and pour over ribs and onions.
  10. Cover, place in the hot oven and bake for 3-4 hours.
