6 Short Ribs Recipes That Will Literally Melt in Your Mouth
Short ribs are having a moment. These beefy, robust ribs are trending right now, and rightly so — best cooked low and slow, their tender texture and decadent flavor profile isn’t something that goes out of style. Better yet, there’s no shortage of short ribs recipes out there to try! Here are a few we swear by:
Short Ribs Black Bean Beer Chili
Short ribs in a chili? It’s just bold enough to work in this recipe from The Beeroness, but when you think about it, it makes a lot of sense. Chili has a depth of flavor similar to what you want in a braised, cooked-on-low-for-hours short rib, so the two together are perfectly in sync. Yum.
Sweet and Sour Pomegranate Short Ribs with Creamy Polenta
If you want a recipe that takes minimal effort but will impress everyone you know, this is it. Armed with your slow cooker and a few choice ingredients courtesy of Half Baked Harvest (including a gorgeous pomegranate), you’ll produce food magic. Promise. (And we haven’t even mentioned the polenta!)
Slow Cooker Asian Short Ribs
Another slow cooker recipe that takes short ribs and pairs them with simple ingredients and even simpler instructions. The best part? This easy recipe from Damn Delicious results in a dish that tastes anything but simple.
Beer Braised Short Ribs
A classic for a reason! You’ll braise the ribs in a beautiful Stout and build flavor in a Dutch Oven over hours thank to this recipe from Fox Valley Foodie. At the end of it all, you’ll be amazed at how just flavorful and tender they turn out.
Korean Braised Short Rib and Kimchi Pasta
It sounds like it shouldn’t work, but it does. Short ribs and kimchi never looked (or tasted!) better together than in this colorful and kind of crazy mishmash of flavors from Half Baked Harvest. We can’t even talk about the glorious beauty that is that soft-boiled egg…
Porter Braised Beef Short Rib Sandwiches with Jalapeño Beer Cheese Sauce
The finale of this short ribs recipes opus is, yes, beer-braised ribs yet again — this time, though, they’re even more over-the-top amazing. In this recipe from The Beeroness, the short ribs are in sandwich form, perched atop crusty sourdough and smothered in a smooth beer cheese sauce. Sigh.
