Recipe by Chef John
"Beef short ribs are pretty much foolproof, and as long as two things happen, you are in for some very fine eats. First, the beef must be really well browned I'm talking deep, dark, crusty, and caramelized. The other key step is easier. To paraphrase an expression, 'stick a fork in them, they're done.' Just braise them until they're fork-tender. After browning properly, the only way to mess these up is to undercook them, so don't."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

If I could rate this 10 stars, I would. Followed recipe exactly with the exception of the cooking time. I added an extra hour in the dutch oven. These were melt in your mouth, divine tasting and a huge hit at the dinner table. Will definitely make again.
Chef John's recipe is excellent! It is "Julia Child-esque" in its simple elegance and richness.
Two firsts for me:
This recipe compelled me to write my first ever review (can't believe this recipe doesn't have one!) And...
This was my first time eating short ribs let alone cooking them. I am a chronic, habitual recipe tweaker, but this time I refrained. The only changes I made were the serving size--I cook for 2 and these are rather expensive--and I did do them in the crock pot. Otherwise I followed the recipe as written and thickened the gravy a bit at the end with a flour slurry. The gravy is rich and delicious and had so much of it left over I froze for later. Served with scratch made mashed potatoes and steamed baby carrots in a lemon chive butter.
Next time I plan to do them on a weekend and use the Dutch oven. I bet they'll be even better! (Also plan to use this recipe for a roast) Thanks Chef John!
This is one of many of Chef John's recipes that I have tried and every time they are a winner. This recipe is no different. Bacon, onion and beef - what's not to love?! I had never cooked with dry sherry before (usually use regular wine) so that was new to me but the short ribs turned out perfect and very tasty. Will be putting this one in my "keeper" recipe rotation. Thanks again Chef John! Keep the recipes coming!
My entire family went crazy for this meal. It was absolutely fantastic, I didn't change a thing to the recipe. Served ribs and sauce on a bed of mashed potatoes. I can't believe how much my 2 year old ate. This will definitely be part of our dinner rotation.
Best short ribs ever! I followed the recipe exactly and could not imagine changing a single thing. Will certainly use this recipe to impress guests.
haven't make this (so the rating is based on how it sounds. Really wondering if it would work in slow cooker (after the browning steps).
