Short Rib Bourguignonne

  • Level: Easy
  • Yield: 4 servings
  • Total: 2 hr 40 min
  • Prep: 20 min
  • Cook: 2 hr 20 min


2 cups all-purpose flour

1 tablespoon paprika

1 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon black pepper

3 to 4 pounds beef short ribs, cut into thirds

3 to 4 tablespoons unsalted butter

1/2 cup bacon lardoons, diced

2 large white onions, sliced

4 shallots, quartered

1 pound mushrooms

1 cup celery, diced

1/2 cup carrots, diced

2 cups red wine or half bottle

4 cups beef stock or to cover


  1. Preheat oven to 350 to 375 degrees F.
  2. Combine flour, paprika, cayenne pepper and black pepper in a bowl. Add the short ribs, coating them lightly in the flour mixture.
  3. In a large Dutch oven or deep oven-proof pot over medium heat, melt butter until golden. Add the ribs, shaking off any excess flour. Sear the meat until brown, moving the ribs around covering them with the butter. In the same pot, saute the bacon for 2 to 3 minutes then add the onions, shallots, mushrooms, celery and carrots and saute until golden. Deglaze the pan with the red wine, adding a little at a time. Let reduce over high heat for 1 minute. Add the rest of the wine and beef stock, and bring to a simmer. Once the liquid has come to a simmer, cover, and cook in the oven for 2 to 3 hours. Taste and adjust seasoning.

Neither my husband nor I like beef all that much any more so instead of the beef short ribs, we used pork spare ribs, boneless. It was wonderful. Instead of Danny's dijon mustard, we used smoked gouda in the mashed potatoes with a spinach arugula salad. It was DELICIOUS
