Braised Short Ribs

The short ribs are cooked low and slow with an incredible combination of ingredients. When they are done, the meat literally falls off the bone. The smell and taste of this dish is glorious.


  • Prep Time : 20 min
  • Cook Time : 3 hour
  • Ready Time : 3 hour, 20 min


4 main or 8 appetizers


  • 4 pounds short ribs or beef flanken with bones
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon of fresh ginger grated
  • 2 clove of garlic grated
  • 1 cup dry red wine
  • 1/3 cup tomato paste
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoons chili paste or 1 teaspoon chili flakes (add more or less depending on your tolerance of spicy food)


Heat two tablespoons oil in large pot. Season meat with a bit of salt and pepper.
Sear meat for four minutes on each side or until nicely browned. Take out meat. Set aside.
Lower flame and add 1 tablespoon of oil.
In the same pot of seared meat, sauté onion, ginger, and garlic until onion is translucent.

  1. please write the names of meat we need to purchase in israel by israeli standards for example flanken is what??????

    • Flanken is a cut of beef in which the ribs are cut lengthwise.

    • Flanken in Israel is cut number 9, called Asado. Some butchers will also know what you mean by flanken, and I have seen frozen flanken labeled just that in Hebrew at Osher Ad. Good luck!

  2. We are on same wave length today — I also posted a recipe for short ribs. I love them, so will try yours next time. They sound wonderful — I like to combo of orange, chili and soy sauce.

    Can this recipe be reworked to make in the crock pot? It sounds Delicious!!

    • It would need to be seared etc then can be transferred to the crock pot – it will work if you do the whole thing in the crock pot but the result will not be the same

    I’m asumming the wine is a dry red. Is that correct?

  5. avatar says: Shari

    Can you substitute powdered ginger and how much would be? Can u omit the chili flakes?

  6. Looks like a recipe that can be made for Pesach. I am starting my planning now. Pesach is early this year.

  7. two questions

    directions do not list sugar. I assume you just throw in with orange juice, etc.

    also, top of recipe says cook time 3 hours but list of directions says 2 hours
    which is correct?

    • sorry about that yes.

      it needs 2 hours of cooking/simmering time (the first hour is the prep/searing etc

        I made this tonight and my husband said this was the best dinner I ever made!! Delicious!!!

    im trying to print it out and it comes out very very small..help!!

  9. I tried making with the only shortrib available locally. I’m not sure what happened, but it turned out very greasy with a stronger flavor than I appreciated. Looking at the recipe, it should be delicious, so I suspect my problem was that I used the wrong cut or didn’t trim it enough.

    • what cut did you use – i have made this many times and never had such an issue
