What a wonderful surprise to arrive home to find a Moink box on my front door step. I knew I’d find the best tasting beef short ribs inside, along with plenty of other cuts of meat.

What’s a Moink Box?

It’s a delivered package of the most delicious meats you could imagine!

My husband and I recently enjoyed an evening out at a nice restaurant where braised short ribs were the chef’s special for the evening.

They were delicious, tender and meaty, and I woke up thinking about them the next day.

I knew I could re-create this short rib recipe for the ideal Sunday dinner.

Inside my Moink box were six of the thickest and meatiest bone-in short ribs and all I needed was my Dutch oven ovenproof pot and a few hours on a Sunday afternoon.

Is this braised beef short ribs recipe easy to make?

Yes! What seems like something you’d order in a fancy restaurant is actually so easy to make at home. It is the ultimate comfort food!

How do you make braised beef short ribs?

Pick up a few key ingredients from one of your local grocery stores. You’ll need beef broth, red wine and Worcestershire sauce to create great flavor.

Grab rosemary in the fresh herbs section of the produce department.

Chop up large onions and carrots.

Dredge the beef ribs in all purpose flour then sear them in a Dutch oven or oven-safe roasting pan at medium-high heat.

Set aside the ribs and saute the vegetables in the same pot.

After scraping up the browned bits from the bottom of the pot, return the ribs to the pot and add in the cooking liquid.

Transfer the lidded pot to the oven. Reduce the temperature to low heat where the ribs will enjoy a long cooking time in a braising liquid of beef stock and red wine sauce.

The marinade and the accumulated juices of the meat will transform these ribs into fork tender and fall-off-the-bone deliciousness.

This recipe is also great using boneless short ribs.

The boxes are completely customizable and Moink makes a great gift any time of the year.

Choose from one of four Moink boxes and tailor from there. I started with the beef, chicken and salmon box and placed a few substitutions.

And above all, my Moink box was delivered for free to my doorstep.

I was like a kid on Christmas unpacking the box. Inside was 13 – 16 pounds of meat, including sockeye salmon, bone-in short ribs, boneless skinless chicken breasts, several filet mignon, ground beef, flank steak and thick cut bacon.

The short ribs were calling my name first, and I’m pretty sure the salmon is next on my dinner calendar.

Best sides for braised beef short ribs?

Cheesy grits or mashed potatoes are naturally complementary. But, don’t forget a salad or vegetable side dish. Here are my favorites:

Servings 3 people


  • 6 beef short ribs
  • 3 cups of beef broth
  • 1 cup red wine
  • 2-3 cloves of garlic chopped
  • 1/2 onion chopped
  • 2 carrots peeled and chopped
  • 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • Kosher salt and black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 2 tablespoons Worchestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Sprig of rosemary


  • Heat oven to 300 degrees. Season the short ribs with salt and pepper and dredge all sides in the flour. Heat the olive oil in a large Dutch oven over medium high heat.
  • Get a good sear on all sides of the ribs until they are evenly browned, about eight minutes. Transfer the ribs to a platter.
  • Reduce the heat to medium and add the onion, garlic and carrots and cook until the vegetables have softened, about 7 minutes.
  • Add the tomato paste and cook for about 2 to 3 minutes then add the red wine. Use a wooden or slotted spoon to scrape the caramelized bits on the bottom of the pan and allow the wine to reduce for about 3 to 4 minutes.
  • Next add in the beef broth and return the short ribs to the pot submerging them in the liquid. Bring to a simmer, then cover and transfer the pot to the oven.
  • The short ribs will braise in the oven for two to three hours depending on how thick they are to begin with. Once the meat is tender and almost falling off the bone, use tongs to remove the ribs from the pot and transfer them to a large plate.
  • Serve the ribs over cheesy grits, creamy polenta or mashed potatoes and spoon a little bit of the finished sauce on top.


If using a roasting pan, prepare the ribs the same way but using the pan across two burners. After adding wine and beef broth, cover the pan tightly with aluminum foil and place it in the oven. It will slow cook at a lower heat of 300 degrees for two hours or until the meat is falling off the bone.
Not a fan of wine, use a stout beer or IPA instead.

    I’ve never heard of the Moink box! How fun!! I have to check that out. Your short ribs look so incredibly delicious! They look perfectly cooked and juicy!

    I love short ribs – such a comforting meal! Loving the flavor combinations you have in this dish!

  • The timing on the recipe overview is not clear. In step 7 you say to cook them three hours in the oven after the sauteing etc. Then in the notes it says 2 hours – is a roaster pan really going to cook them in an hour less time than in a Dutch oven? Doubtful. Think they will be tough at only two hours so I think you need to go with the three hours cooking time and your our total time at the top needs to be 3 and 1/2 hours not 2 1/2!

    • Thanks for your comment. The great thing about this recipe is that you can cook beef short ribs for 2 to 3 hours and they will be delicious and fall off the bone, no matter whether you use a dutch oven or a roaster. The time will depend on how thick the ribs are. Just eye ball it and you’ll know when they are ready when the rib pulls from the bone. I’ve clarified the recipe time to make it clear. Hope you enjoy the dish 🙂
