Husband's Beer Braised Short Rib Recipe

After having many kinds of short ribs in my lifetime, me and the husband have always wanted to take a crack at making our own.  This recipe is simple and delicious!  Way to go hubby!

(Serves 2-3)

2 Pounds of Beef Short Ribs
1 Onion (sliced)
2 Cloves of Garlic (Minced)
1 Cup of Sliced Mushrooms
2 Cups of Beef Stock
2 Bottles of Stout Beer (we used Guinness)
1 Tablespoon of Butter
2 Tablespoons of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 Tablespoons of Flour
Salt and Pepper to taste

1.) Season the short ribs with a good helping of salt and pepper.  Then dredge the ribs with flour.

2.) Add the olive oil and butter to a large dutch oven or deep skillet and turn stove top to medium high heat.  Cook the ribs till brown on each side.  Remove the ribs from the skillet.

3.) Add the sliced onions, mushrooms, and garlic to the skillet and cook until soften.

4.) Place the ribs, cooked onion, mushrooms, and garlic in a deep casserole or large baking pan.  Pour the beef stock and beer over the ribs.  Cover with aluminum foil and bake at 350 degrees for 2 1/2 hours.

Here's the final product plated =)
