Braised Beef Short Ribs with Blackberry-Pinot Noir Jus

Braised Beef Short Ribs with Blackberry-Pinot Noir Jus

On the occasions when we do eat meat, we get local, pastured meat and do something with it to make it memorable.  Recently I ordered some beef short ribs from Grant Family Farms and did a long, slow braise with a blackberry and flipflop wines Pinot Noir base.

For tender, unctuous short ribs you want to cook them for a long time with a braising liquid.  I used my Le Creuset Dutch oven for this.  They were amazing.  The wine and fruit cook down into a richly-flavored sauce and the ribs are almost black on the exterior.  This would be a lovely, autumn-y, company meal.

Braised Beef Short Ribs with Blackberry-Pinot Noir Jus
3 pounds beef short ribs
2 cups flipflop Pinot Noir
2 cups frozen blackberries, thawed
1 tablespoon honey
a few sprigs of fresh thyme
salt and crushed black pepper, to taste

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.

In a 4-quart (or larger) Dutch oven, arrange the short ribs to fit and pour the wine over the top.  Place the blackberries in a fine sieve over a bowl, and use a fork to press out as much juice as possible.  Pour the strained blackberry juice over the ribs, and drizzle on the honey.  Sprinkle with thyme, plus a little salt and pepper, then cover and roast for 3 hours, or until the ribs are falling off of the bone and the liquid has reduced to less than a cup.  Taste and adjust seasonings if needed, and serve.

    1. Hi Mona: I think this would work well in the crockpot, the texture would just be a little different–but still delicious. Good luck with sneaking the family into paleo! 🙂
