- Melt in your mouth braised short ribs - Making risotto is Easier than you think! - Parmesan Cheese = a rich & nutty flavor


For this recipe you will need: Beef broth, sherry, short ribs, mushrooms, garlic, parmesan, arborio rice, red wine, and onions

Pat the short ribs dry and lightly salt. Heat a large dutch oven over medium-high heat. Brush oil onto short ribs. Sear short ribs on all sides until a browned crust develops. Set braised ribs aside.


Add onions to pot and caramelize. Add in garlic and cook until fragrant. Deglaze with red wine and simmer.


Return short ribs & any juices to the pot. Add in enough beef broth to cover the short ribs about 2/3 of the way. Cover pot & cook 2-3 hours until meat is falling off bones. Remove and discard bones.


When short ribs are cool enough to handle, remove & discard any fatty pieces from the beef. Chop into bite sized pieces. Add back to pot where onions & juices have reduced to form a thicker gravy.


In the last 45 minutes of the short ribs cooking time, Add olive oil and mushrooms, to a skillet over medium-high heat and cook until brown. Add salt & pepper to taste. Set mushrooms aside.


In a saucepan heated over medium heat, add olive oil and sauté onions, until caramelized. Add in garlic and cook until fragrant. Deglaze with sherry, scraping up any browned bits.


Toast the dry risotto. Adjust heat to medium-low. Gradually add hot broth in batches, stirring frequently. Cook until liquid has absorbed before adding the next bit of broth.


When all the liquid has been absorbed, stir in parmesan cheese and butter. Mix until combined. Add salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste.


Add browned mushrooms to the beef and gravy. Serve beef and gravy on top of the risotto. Top with fresh herbs and serve!
