WHAT ARE BRAISED BEEF SHORT RIBS?
It is the 5 ribs in the chuck/shoulder cut of the cow. Because it is a tougher overworked portion of the cow going the low and slow method AND braising is an absolute must. Whether you sear then braise your beef short ribs OR do smoked short ribs then braise, the science is the same. You want to slowly render the fat within this meat (ensure to remove any visible hard fat that will not render, see video)
There are two styles/cuts of braised beef short ribs. Flanken Style and English Style.
Flanken style is what you commonly see as "Korean short ribs" or where it looks long flat and commonly has 3 bones. English style are cut between the bones and are typically 3-6 inches in length.
INGREDIENTS: Beef Chuck Braising Ribs (4-6)
Beef Rub (I used Pitboss "Smoky Salt & Cracked Pepper)
Red Wine (2 cups, Any Red - I used Shiraz)
Zucchini (1, diced)
Onion (medium, diced)
Celery (1 stalk, chopped) Carrot (1, chopped) Garlic (3, sliced) Olive Oil (1/4 cup)
Thyme (1/2 tsp dry, 1 tsp fresh)
Rosemary (2 springs, or 1 tsp dry)
Oregano (1/2 Tbsp fresh, 1 tsp dry)
Salt & Pepper (to taste)
Beef Broth (2/3 cup) Flour (2 Tbsp)
SMOKED SHORT RIBS
Preheat your pellet smoker to 225 degrees. You want to slowly smoke and render your beef chuck braising ribs. Trim any hard fat from the ribs. This hard fat will not render. Then Rub your smoked short ribs with your favourite beef rub. Salt, Pepper, and garlic powder OR I used Pitboss "Smoky Salt & Cracked Pepper. After rubbed down place directly on your pellet grill for approximately 3 hours or until an internal temperature of 165 degrees. In the meantime, prep all your red wine sauce reduction ingredients.
RED WINE REDUCTION
After your ribs have been smoked, set your pellet smoker to 400 degrees. You want it at a higher heat to saute the vegetables first. In your large cast iron or dutch oven, add your olive oil, zucchini, onion, celery and carrots. Close lid to retain heat and come back in about 5 minutes to give it a stir. After this stir every couple of minutes until the onions become translucent.
In a small jar with a lid, add the beef broth and flour and SHAKE. Set aside. For these smoked short ribs, I wanted to have a thick velvet red wine reduction so this mixture will sure do the trick.
After your vegetables are slightly cooked, add your garlic and herbs. Stir for approximately 1 minute or until fragrant. Then add your red wine and beef broth mixture. Give this all a merrily stir, then add your soon-to-be braised beef short ribs to the dutch oven. Cover with your lid, reduce the temperature to 275 degrees, and braise your ribs for 2 more hours or until an internal temperature of 200 degrees.
Serve over mashed potatoes and your favourite vegetable. These warm and comforting smoked short ribs are such a treat for my family and I know it will be yours too.
