Step-by-step instruction without your screen going to sleep

  • 3 pounds beef short ribs
  • Kosher salt, as desired
  • Ground black pepper, as desired
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 medium yellow onion, chopped
  • 2 medium carrots, peeled, chopped
  • 2 celery ribs, chopped
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 1 cup red wine
  • 2 cups beef broth
  • 1 head of garlic, top trimmed to expose cloves
  • Handful of herbs (thyme, oregano, rosemary, parsley)
  • 1 bay leaf


  • Silicone tongs
  • Step 1

    Preheat oven to 350˚F.

  • Step 2

    Season ribs with salt and pepper. Heat oil in Ninja PossiblePot over high heat. Add the ribs to the pot and sear on each side for 3 to 4 minutes, or until evenly brown on all sides. Remove ribs from the pot and set aside.

  • Step 3

    Add the onions, carrots, and celery to the pot. Cook for 5 minutes, or until onions soften, stirring occasionally and scraping the bottom of the pan to release any brown bits from searing the rib meat.

  • Step 4

    Add flour and tomato paste to the pot and mix until fully combined, cooking for 3-4 minutes.

  • Step 5

    Add short ribs and any of the juices back into the pot. Add wine, beef stock, herbs, bay leaf, and garlic with exposed cloves facing up. Bring to a boil, then cover pot with lid and transfer to the oven.

  • Step 6

    Cook until the short ribs are tender and fall off the bone, about 2 hours.

  • Step 7

    When cooking is complete, remove short ribs from oven and serve immediately.
