Los Angeles Restaurant Kendall’s Brasserie’s Braised Beef Short Ribs Recipe:

6 (14-ounce) beef short ribs
Salt and black pepper
1/2 cup oil


2 onions, roughly chopped
2 carrots, roughly chopped
1 stalk celery, roughly chopped
1 head garlic, whole cloves peeled
2 tablespoons tomato paste
1 tablespoon flour
2 cups dry red wine
2 sprigs thyme
2 bay leaves
1 sprig rosemary
6 cups beef broth, divided
2 tablespoons butter
12 cups assorted mushrooms, cleaned but left whole
1 cup heavy cream


Here are the 7 steps to follow to make the ultimate restaurant quality short ribs!

Heat oven to 325 degrees. Season the short ribs lightly with salt and pepper. Heat a Dutch oven over high heat until hot. Add vegetable oil and sear the short ribs on all sides. Remove the short ribs and set aside on a plate.

Add the onion, carrot, celery and garlic to the Dutch oven and cook, stirring frequently, until the vegetables are caramelized, 10 to 12 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium and skim any excess fat from the top.

Stir in the tomato paste, then stir in the flour. Add dry red wine, thyme, bay leaves, rosemary, the seared short ribs and enough beef broth to cover the meat (add water if necessary), then bring to a boil, skimming any fat off the top of the liquid as it cooks.

Cover the Dutch oven and place in the oven until the meat is tender, about 2 1/2 hours, checking every 20 to 30 minutes to skim excess fat off the top. Add additional broth or water as necessary to keep the meat submerged in cooking liquid.

Meanwhile, heat a sauté pan over high heat and add the butter. When the butter is melted, add the mushrooms. Cook until the mushrooms are caramelized, stirring frequently, and season lightly with salt and pepper. Remove from heat.

When the meat is fully cooked, carefully remove it and set aside on top of the mushrooms.

On the stove top, bring the braising liquid back to a boil, removing excess fat as necessary. Reduce the braising liquid to about 4 cups, then strain. Place the liquid back into the Dutch oven and add the cream. Season to taste and simmer over low heat until the sauce thickens to a creamy consistency, about 15 minutes.Gently stir in the meat and mushrooms before serving.
