  • 5 pounds bone-in short ribs
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoons avocado oil
  • ½ onion diced
  • 2 celery stalks diced
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 2 ½ cups beef broth
  • ½ cup red wine or additional beef broth
  • 3 springs fresh rosemary


  • Preheat the oven to 350.
  • Pat the short ribs with paper towels to dry and season with salt and pepper. Allow to sit at room temperature for an hour or refrigerate overnight.
  • Heat the oil in a dutch oven to medium-high heat. Add the avocado oil and brown the short ribs on all sides, about 6 to 8 minutes.
  • Remove from the pan and add the onion, celery, and garlic. Cook for 4 minutes. Add the broth and red wine to a pan and bring to a boil. Cook for 4 minutes.
  • Return the ribs to the pan along with the fresh rosemary. Add additional broth or water to the pan until the ribs are halfway covered. Cover and bake for 3 hours, flipping halfway through.
  • Remove the rosemary from the pan. Serve the ribs with the braising liquid. (You can thicken the liquid with ½ teaspoon xanthan gum if you like.)
