Hands down the BEST short ribs I’ve ever had. I served mine with a steaming bowl of ramen, but these tender ribs would be amazing on pizza, in tacos, with some creamy polenta or a heap of buttery mashed potatoes.

Step 1
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (160 degrees C).
Step 2
Season Boneless Beef Short Ribs (6) with Kosher Salt (to taste) and Ground Black Pepper (to taste) on all sides. Don't be shy when seasoning!
Step 3
Heat the Canola Oil (2 tablespoon) over medium high heat in a large cast iron skillet. Once hot, sear the short ribs on all sides until browned and caramelized. Do this in batches if necessary. This should take a total of 10-15 minutes.
Step 4
Reduce the heat to medium and add the Onion (1) and Garlic (2 clove). Toss to coat in the rendered fat, and allow to cook 5 minutes or until soft.
Step 5
Add the Tomato Paste (2 tablespoon). Using a wooden spoon, evenly distribute the paste throughout the skillet. Cook for 2 minutes to release the acidity. The onions will start to turn deep red!
Step 6
In a bowl combine the Beef Broth (2 cup), Ketchup (2 tablespoon), Apple Cider Vinegar (2 tablespoon), and Worcestershire Sauce (1 tablespoon). Mix.
Step 7
Pour into the skillet. The short ribs should be half way submerged, If not half way submerged add more beef broth. Add the Bay Leaf (2) and bring to a simmer.
Step 8
Once the broth has reached a simmer, tightly cover with foil and transfer to the oven.
Step 9
Allow the short ribs to cook in the oven for 2 1/2-3 hours until fork tender. I kept checking after two hours.
Step 10
Garnish with Fresh Parsley (to taste) and eat however desired. I ate mine with ramen, but this is also delicious with polenta, mashed potatoes, rice, tacos, or even on pizza!
