There are so many great stews out there because you can put almost anything in the pot, but there’s just something special about a short rib stew. Where there’s fat, there’s flavour and short ribs embody that sentiment. You do need to slow-cook them to get them nice and tender, but when you’re there, they fall apart and melt in your mouth with every bite. It’s also one of those recipes where you can have a glass of wine as you add wine to the pot too.

You want to brown the meat on each side before layering the rest of the flavours and you can make your vegetables as finely chopped or as chunky as you want to. Adding potatoes is a great idea and can help thicken the sauce a bit too. As with many rich stews, you can garnish it with some parsley, garlic and lemon zest. The video below adds the method and ingredients in the graphics.
