Savory Short Ribs-Connie's

Connie Ottman


While experimenting in the kitchen, this recipe was born. Every rib was gone when it was served..and there were only two of us! Feel free to add and/or delete ingredients as you like. It's a vary versatile dish. You can, also, substitute beef broth for the wine if you prefer. Enjoy!

How to Make Savory Short Ribs-Connie's


  • 1Salt ribs very well and press salt into the meat.
  • 2Place olive oil into a preheated iron skillet set on medium.
  • 3Brown ribs on all sides. Don't crowd the pan; cook in batches if need be otherwise the ribs will steam and not brown. Take ribs out of skillet once browned.
  • 4Peel and chopped Celery and onion.
  • 5Clean and de-stem mushrooms. I save the stems for soup, etc.
  • 6Place vegetables into the same skillet that browned the ribs. Sauté veggies.
  • 7Place ribs in a large casserole dish.
  • 8Cover ribs with sautéed veggies.
  • 9Place tomato paste in iron skillet. Mix wine into tomato paste a little at a time. If the sauce is too thick and more wine or beef broth.
  • 10Pour tomato mixture over short ribs and veggies.
  • 11Top with minced garlic.
  • 12Bake covered in a 325 degree oven for 2 1/2 hours.
  • 13Enjoy!
