  • 4 pounds beef short rib, cut into serving-sized pieces
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 stalks celery, coarsely chopped (about 1 cup)
  • 1 large carrot, peeled and coarsely chopped (about 1/2 cup)
  • 1 large onion, coarsely chopped (about 1 cup)
  • 3 medium Italian plum tomato, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup Swanson® Beef Broth or Beef Stock
  • 1/2 cup dry red wine
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary leaves or 1 teaspoon dried rosemary leaves, crushed
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1/4 cup water


  • Step 1

    Preheat oven to 375°F. Season the ribs with salt and black pepper. Sprinkle with the flour. Heat the oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Add the ribs in 2 batches and cook until they're well browned on all sides. Remove the ribs from the skillet and place in roasting pan.

  • Step 2

    Add the celery, carrot, onion, tomatoes and garlic to the skillet and cook until the vegetables are tender. Stir in the broth, wine, vinegar, rosemary and bay leaf and heat to a boil. Spoon the vegetables over the ribs in the roasting pan, reserving the sauce in the skillet. Cover roasting pan with foil and bake for 1 1/2 hours or until the ribs are fork tender. Remove the ribs to serving platter and spoon the vegetables over ribs.

  • Step 3

    Stir the flour and water in a small bowl until the mixture is smooth. Stir the flour mixture in the skillet with the sauce. Cook and stir over medium heat until the mixture boils and thickens. Discard the bay leaf. Serve the sauce over the ribs and vegetables.

    My husband has high blood pressure, so instead of broth we used a can of crushed tomatoes ( 1% sodium). We like this recipe. Thanks.

    This is the best Short Ribs recipe I've ever tried. I added whole green beans and mashed potatoes as sides.
