I've never actually tried this recipe--it's my best guess to correct my mistakes from last time I tried this dish

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oil on high heat in a large nonstick pan.
  2. Toss short ribs in flour, add to pan, and sear on all sides.
  3. Reduce heat to low and add garlic; cook and stir for about 1 min.
  4. Add tomato, mushrooms, Marsala wine, and Italian seasoning one at a time, allowing about 1-2 min between each for liquid to evaporate.
  5. Cover pan and braise for 3 hr or until very tender, checking and stirring every 30 min to make sure liquid has not evaporated away (add more Marsala if liquid evaporates).
  6. Increase heat to medium high and heat thoroughly.
  7. Serve over tortelloni.

I actually had to add in a little heavy cream to get the color and consistency that I wanted, but it tasted just like at the restaurant. I'm sure I'll be making it again.....
