Succulent, wine-laced short ribs. I serve these with roasted garlic mashed potatoes.

I only prepare short ribs every now and then, but I may have to change that after eating this. The merlot sauce is OUTSTANDING...excellent taste and texture. Thanks for a really good recipe.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 450 F.
  2. Season the short ribs with salt and pepper and place in a roasting pan that's just large enough to hold them in a single layer.
  3. Roast for 30 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, place the wine, stock, flour, sugar and mustard in a medium-sized pot and whisk until well combined. Mix in the onion, garlic and thyme.
  5. Bring to a boil, boil 2 minutes and then remove from the heat.
  6. Once the short ribs have roasted for 30 minutes, remove from the oven and drain away the excess fat.
  7. Reduce the oven temperature to 325°F.
  8. Pour the wine/stock mixture over the ribs.
  9. Cover and bake for 2 hours or until the meat is very tender and falling off the bone.
  10. Skim any fat from the surface of the ribs before serving.
