Beef Short Ribs Italiano



These great tasting Beef Short Ribs are braised in wine and served with garlic mashed potatoes. The sauce is spiced with the right ingredients that make it rich and delicious.

This is comfort food at it’s best. The ribs are braised in wine seasonings for hours creating tender moist morsels of beef. Except for the extra spices it’s very similar to my Osso Bucco recipe.

Serve these braised Beef Short Ribs over some garlic mashed potatoes or over pasta, gnocchi or polenta. This makes a great meal on a nice cool evening. Enjoy.
