Beer-Braised Short Ribs

beer braised short ribs4 1/2 pounds bone-in short ribs

3 teaspoons kosher salt

2 tablespoons canola oil

1/2 cup shallots, chopped

1/4 cup carrots, chopped

2 garlic cloves, crushed

2 tablespoons tomato paste

2 12-ounce bottles of light amber beer

1/4 cup brown sugar

1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

2 bay leaves

  1. One hour before cooking, remove the meat from the fridge.
  2. Heat the oven to 350 degrees.
  3. With 2 1/2 teaspoons of salt, evenly season the short ribs on all sides.
  4. In a large Dutch oven, heat the oil over high on the stove top. Once hot add the short ribs and brown for 3 minutes per side, for a total of 6 minutes, and set aside. This should be done in 2 batches.
  5. Lower the heat to medium low and remove the Dutch oven from the heat. Add the shallots, carrots and garlic, and continue to cook off the heat for 2 minutes.
  6. Add the Dutch oven back to the stove top, and then add the tomato paste and heat for 2 minutes. While cooking the tomato paste, smash it to make sure it’s all being cooked.
  7. Add 1/2 cup of the beer to the paste and deglaze the pan. Once the brown bits are scraped from the pan, add the sugar, Dijon, Worcestershire, bay leaves and the remaining 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Mix well.
  8. Place the short ribs back into the Dutch oven. Pour the remaining contents of the 12-ounce beer plus an additional 1/2 cup of the second bottle, or more if needed, to submerge the short ribs just over halfway.
  9. Bring the beer mixture to a boil, cover the Dutch oven, and place it in the oven.
  10. Cook for 3 hours. Serve warm.
