How to cook short ribs? Remove only the thickest layers of external fat by trimming the short ribs. The ribs will continue to break apart if the internal layers of connective tissue are missing, as well as the silverskin or membrane that binds the meat to the bone.

Here’s how to cook short ribs at home:


  • 1 pound beef short ribs
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 (12 fluid ounce) can or bottle stout beer
  • 1 cup beef stock


Step 1. The first step on how to cook short ribs is to season them with salt and pepper, then dredge them in flour until well coated. Remove some extra flour by shaking it off.

Step 2. In a big skillet or Dutch oven, heat the olive oil and butter over medium-high heat. Cook the ribs for 5 minutes on either hand or until browned.

Step 3. Remove the skillet from the heat and set it aside. Cook and stir the onion and garlic in the skillet for about 5 minutes or until the onion is tender. Load the beer into the skillet with the ribs.

Step 4. Stir until all of the browned bits have blended in with the oil, scraping the bottom of the pan if needed.

Step 5. So, we have come to the last steps on how to cook short ribs. Pour in the beef stock, cover, and cook on low heat for around 2 hours or until very tender.

Step 2. Season the short ribs on both sides with salt and pepper.

Step 5. Add the beef broth and Worcestershire sauce to the cup. Bring to a low boil, then reduce to low heat. Toss in the meat. Cover with a rosemary sprig.

Here’s how to cook boneless short ribs:


  • 4 pounds boneless beef short ribs
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 2 cups ketchup
  • 2 Tbl liquid smoke
  • 1/2–2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup minced onion
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 3/4 cup Bacon BBQ Sauce or any BBQ sauce
  • 2 Tbl cornstarch
  • 2 Tbl water


Step 1. Preheat the oven to 148 °C and place a rack in the middle. Combine the ketchup, liquid smoke, brown sugar, minced onion, garlic powder, and bacon bbq sauce in a medium saucepan over medium heat and stir to combine. Cook, stirring regularly until the sauce is rich and bubbly. About ten minutes.

Step 2. Season the short ribs with salt and pepper all over. In a 13x9-inch glass baking dish, combine all of the ingredients. This is going to be a tight situation. Over the short ribs, pour around 1/2 cup of the sauce.

Step 3. Turn the ribs over with tongs and spoon another 1/2 cup of sauce on top. Hold the leftover BBQ sauce to spoon over the ribs until they've been fried. Roast for 2 1/2 hours with the skillet covered with foil.

Step 4. Carefully remove the foil and turn the short ribs. More sauce can be spooned on top. Cook for an additional 30 minutes, uncovered until the beef is juicy and browned. Check the ribs every 10-15 minutes to make sure they're still wrapped in sauce, and the pan hasn't dried out.

Step 5. Arrange the short ribs on a platter to serve. Use some of the reserved BBQ sauce to baste the short ribs. Load the juices into a medium saucepan, discarding the fat and oil. Bring to a boil with around 1/4 cup bbq sauce. To thicken the liquid, make a slurry of cornstarch and water and whisk it into it.
