Pinot Noir Short Ribs

Fall off the bone tender, melt in your mouth, soft, short ribs braised in rich Pinot Noir broth, infused with aromatics and served over a bed of rice or mashed potatoes are exactly what comfort food is about.

Short ribs in a bowl with carrots and tomatoes being spread with a fork.

This short rib recipe is so easy to throw together, it’s ridiculous, but no one will know because the flavor will rival any restaurant dish.

After hours and hours of cooking at a barely simmering heat, the ribs come out so tender you could eat them with your lips and your whole house is going to smell like you’re making the meal of your life, while not doing anything at all. I rarely rave about anything this much, but I lo-o-o-ve these ribs and I thought I should let you know 😉
