Recipe: Braised Beef Short Ribs with Stout and Root Vegetables


  • 1.5 kg beef short ribs from Commercial Butchers
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 onions, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 carrots, diced
  • 3 parsnips, diced
  • 3 potatoes, diced
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 2 cups stout beer
  • 2 cups beef broth
  • 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 2 bay leaves


  1. Preheat Oven: Preheat oven to 160°C
  2. Season and Sear: Season beef short ribs with salt and pepper. In a large oven-safe pot, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Sear ribs until browned on all sides. Remove and set aside.
  3. Sauté Vegetables: In the same pot, add onions and cook until softened. Add garlic and cook for another minute.
  4. Add Root Vegetables: Add carrots, parsnips, and potatoes. Cook for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  5. Tomato Paste and Flour: Stir in tomato paste and flour, cooking for another 2 minutes.
  6. Deglaze and Add Liquids: Pour in stout to deglaze the pot, scraping up any browned bits. Add beef broth, Worcestershire sauce, thyme, and bay leaves.
  7. Braise: Return short ribs to the pot. Bring to a boil, then cover with a lid and transfer to the preheated oven. Braise for 2.5 to 3 hours, until the beef is tender and falls off the bone.
  8. Serve: Remove thyme sprigs and bay leaves. Serve the beef short ribs with the braising liquid and vegetables.
