Bone-In Beef Short Ribs to Share

Chef JJ Johnson

Prep time: 35 minutes

Cooking time: Approximately 4 hours

Total time: 4.5 hours


2 pounds short ribs bone in, prepped from the butcher

1/4 cup olive oil plus 3 tablespoons

2 cups dry red wine (Pinot Noir or Merlot)

1 quart veal stock

3 cinnamon sticks

3 bay leaves

3 oranges, quartered

1 bunch thyme

1 bunch parsley

1 jalapeno, chopped with seeds


Preheat your oven to 325 degrees F.

Heat a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat and add 3 tablespoons of the olive oil. Once the oil begins to shimmer add the short rib in a single layer and season with salt and pepper. Sear the meat until lightly browned on all sides, turning with long tongs, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer meat to a plate.

Deglaze the pot with the red wine, making sure to bring up the brown bits of fond from the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon. Return the short ribs back to the pot and lower the heat to medium. Add in the veal stock, 3 cups of water, cinnamon sticks, bay leaves, oranges, thyme, parsley and jalapeno. Season generously with pepper. Cook for 2-3 hours.
