How to Make Red Wine Braised Short Ribs
- Transfer the ribs to a plate and tent with foil to keep warm. (*Note: instead of tenting the meat, I just add to the thickened sauce - next step - before serving, which reheats it.)
- Strain the braising liquid through a fine strainer into saucepan over med-high heat. Simmer the liquid, skimming fat as necessary, until thickened, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and whisk in the remaining 1 Tbsp butter. Taste for seasoning and adjust if necessary until thickened, about 10 minutes.
