I decided to try my hand (first time) at making some short ribs since the baby back ribs turned out so well. I used my Ninja Cooking System to make these 'Beef Lover's Dream' ribs that literally "Fall off the Bone" and were delish! You could cook these in the crockpot or even the oven; covered up. This is one hardy meal sure to please.

Recipe is from my Ninja Cookbook and is another great one!

How to Make Italian Braised Short Ribs

Step-by-Step

  1. Rinse off the beef ribs and pat dry. Add your flour and seasonings in a bowl and mix well.
  2. Coat the ribs with flour mixture.
  3. Add your oil to pan or pot till it gets hot, then add your ribs and brown on all 4 sides. Then remove the ribs from pot and let sit till ready to place back into pot.
  4. Next add your pancetta to the pot. Cook uncovered until lightly browned, stirring occasionally & will take a couple of minutes. Stir in your chopped onions, carrots, minced garlic and your seasonings of oregano, crushed red pepper, rosemary and thyme and cook for about 5 - 7 minutes. Stir in the tomato paste, tomatoes, wine and broth.
  5. Add back in your seared ribs on top of your veggies. Set to a SLOW COOK LOW FOR 6 TO 8 hours. Cook till meat is fork tender. (Mine were ready at about 7 hours.)
  6. I chose to remove my ribs and strain out the veggies from the sauce and just use a little of the sauce to make a gravy from it.
  7. 5-22-13---I served these beef short ribs with mashed potatoes, roasted asparagus and the veggies.
  8. The Ninja did it again and made "Fall off the Bone" Italian Braised Short Ribs. Even a couple of the ribs the bone had already fallen out and was at the bottom of the pan.
