"Beef Short Ribs braised in lager, with carrots & mushrooms, cooked outside last night. Too easy, kinda like a mix of different things and inspired by everyone who said "Mom's Pot Roast" in the comments of my previous post. It's true - Comfort foods and classics like a good stew just feel like "Home." I'm making @deltabluesrice rice grits to go with it and I used my favorite @44farms beef. A bottle of local beer from @abitabeer gave this a great flavor too. #MadeInStaub"
Short Rib Lager Stew
Prep time 15mins
Cook time 1hr 50mins
Serves or Makes: 4
- 2 pounds boneless beef short ribs, each cut in half
- 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon kosher salt
- 1 tablespoon freshly ground black pepper
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 cups diced Vidalia onion

- 4 cups beef stock
- 1 12-ounce bottle lager
- 1/ 4 cup chopped herbs, such as sage, thyme and rosemary
- 1 bay leaf
- 4 cups chopped carrots
- 2 cups halved button mushrooms
Toss beef, flour, salt and pepper in a stainless bowl. Add oil to cast iron pot over medium-high heat. Sear beef until golden, 5 minutes on each side.
Remove beef and set aside. Add onions, celery, pepper and garlic to the same pot. Scrape any crunchy bits off bottom of pot. Cook for 5 minutes until translucent. Season with salt and pepper.
Add beef back to pot. Add stock, lager, herbs and bay leaf. Cover and cook for 1 1/2-2 hours until the sauce has thickened and beef is tender. Add carrot and mushrooms. Cook for 10-15 minutes more over medium heat. Season and serve baby! (Even better the next day after another slow simmer!)
