Italian Slow Braised Short Ribs

Italian Slow Braised Short Ribs Recipe

I made this recipe for the first  time last Christmas with my Dad. I gave him a pasta machine for his birthday and we wanted to put it to use to make raviolis.

We decided to use Slow Braised Short Ribs for the filling, thus this recipe was born.

After a few tweaks to perfect the recipe, I re-created it at home this week to share with all of you!

Instead of using it to fill raviolis, this time I served it over Creamy Cheesy  Polenta.

Remove from the oven.  Remove the short ribs from the pot. Let rest for 10-15 minutes.

Strain the cooking liquid into a large saucepan and reduce over medium-high heat for 15 minutes.

The short ribs should fall right off the bone, you’ll then want to trim the fat from the short ribs and shred the meat.

Serve with pasta or polenta, then top with the reduced sauce.
