With the crisp, fall air making its appearance at the very start of October, it's only fitting to break out the slow cookers and dutch ovens to make cozy, comforting dinners for everyone to enjoy. One of the best, and easiest, meals I make in my house is my red wine braised short ribs recipe. If you're looking for a tender, flavorful, and stick-to-your-bones comforting short rib recipe, this one is for you. Plus, we cook with wine, doesn't get any more exciting than this!
Short Ribs are a cut from the lower portion of the rib cage, and carry a great deal of flavor from the surrounding fat on each individual cut. When short ribs are braised well, short ribs yield tender, delicate, flavorful, and super delicious meat that can be paired with just about anything you can think of.
Other than the delicious flavor they provide, they actually pack a great deal of nutrients, and are versatile for many recipes.
The list literally goes on and on, but if you really want to get good at making short ribs, making this red wine braised short rib recipe is the perfect one to get you hooked on short ribs.
The act of "Braising" means to take a tougher piece of meat, such as short ribs, and cooking the meat in liquid until it is fall-off-the-bone tender. This is done typically in a slow cooker, pressure cooker or a dutch oven. I tend to use my dutch oven when braising because it traps all of the delicious flavors inside, and I can control the temperature. With this particular recipe, we use vegetable stock, coconut aminos, and deliciously dry red wine, like a Cabernet.
Red wine adds acidity, and it also gives a lot of deep, bold flavor to the meat. We don't use an entire bottle, but simply one half a cup of dry red wine. I don't prefer to use a sweet red as it can compromise the flavor. We want bold, savory notes, and a dry red does the job beautifully.
You'll be delighted that this recipe does not call for any crazy ingredients, although you might need to get coconut aminos to add a little sweet and savory to the dish. You can find all of these ingredients fairly easily at your local supermarket.
Making this recipe is easier than you think. If you have a weekend where you're home for the evening, or if you're looking for a recipe to wow a crowd, this is excellent for those occasions!
