2 lbs beef short ribs, cut into 3-4-inch pieces
1 large onion, sliced
3 carrots, sliced
3 stalks celery, sliced
8 oz mushrooms, quartered
4 cloves garlic, chopped
1 pinch red pepper flakes (optional)
3 c beef broth
2 c dry red wine (or more broth)
2 tbsp tomato paste
2 heads of garlic, with the tops, removed
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
2 bay leaves
1 tsp thyme, chopped (or 1/2 tsp dried thyme)
1 tsp rosemary, chopped (or 1/2 tsp dried rosemary)
2 tbsp parsley, chopped


Step 1: Place a large saucepan on the stove and turn the heat to medium-high.

Step 2: Add in the beef and cook each side for about 3 to 4 minutes or until brown.

Step 3: Place the beef on a clean plate, then set aside.

Step 4: Leave about 2 tablespoons of the grease in the pan and discard the rest.

Step 5: Add in the carrots, onions, mushrooms, and celery. Sauté for about 7 to 10 minutes or until translucent and soft.

Step 6: Add in the garlic and red pepper flake. Sauté for a minute or until aromatic.

Step 7: Add in the wine, broth, heads of garlic, balsamic vinegar, tomato paste, rosemary, bay leaves, thyme, and seared beef. Allow the mixture to boil.

Step 8: Cover the pan and reduce the heat, then simmer for 2 to 3 hours or until the beef is fork-tender.

Step 9: You can transfer everything into a slow cooker to be cooked for about 8 hours on low or place the pan inside the oven and cook for 2 to 3 hours at 350 degrees F.

Step 10: Discard the bay leaves, then sprinkle salt and pepper to taste.

Step 11: Serve and enjoy!
