Black Truffle Short Ribs
Season 4 lb. (2 kg) bone-in short ribs with salt and pepper. In a large fry pan or Dutch oven over medium-high heat, warm 2 Tbs. oil until almost smoking. In batches, brown the beef on all sides, 8 to 10 minutes per batch.
If using a slow cooker, transfer the beef to the insert and add the braising sauce. Cover and cook on high until the meat is fork-tender, about 5 hours.
If using an oven, return all the beef to the pot, add the braising sauce and 1 cup (250 ml) water, and bring to a simmer. Cover the pot tightly with aluminum foil, then cover with the lid. Transfer to a 350°F (180ºC) oven and cook until the meat is fork-tender, 3 to 4 hours.
Skim the fat off the sauce and serve.
Serves 6 to 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by luv2skiandsurf from Very versatile sauce!!!! Every Fall I stock up on this sauce! The flavor is fantastic without being overpowering. This is my go-to sauce for short ribs, roasts, and other meats I want for the oven and slow-cooker. You won't be disappointed!!Date published: 2019-10-02Rated 5 out of 5 by Penny from So good !!! Was just as good as my own braiding sauce..Will definitely be buying it again....Date published: 2017-12-13Rated 3 out of 5 by mantaspace from Tasty! For starters I'd give this a 4 star if the truffle flavor was prominent and it's not. When opening the jar I was hoping to have an overwhelming smell of truffles, that didn't happen. About an hour into the cooking process the smell in my kitchen was wonderful and upon completion the results were outstanding. I used my Le Crueset brasier to cook the short ribs in the oven and after 3 1/2 hours the only thing I had to do was skim the fat and add a little water to thin gravy/sauce to laddle over the short ribs. I wish I had taken a photo because it was a masterpiece! I made truffle mashed potatoes and petite peas as sides. Really a wonderful dinner!Date published: 2017-10-13
