How to Cook Beef Short Ribs
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.
