Ingredients

  • 1 Tablespoon flour
  • 1/4 Teaspoon pepper
  • 4 carrots, pared
  • 1 Tablespoon butter or lard
  • 2 Cups boiling water
  • 4 small onions, peeled
  • 2 white potatoes, halved and pared
  • 1/2 Teaspoon salt

Directions

Combine flour, salt, and pepper, and rub into shortribs on both sides.

Brown well on all sides in lard or butter in kettle or Dutch oven.

Add 1 cup boiling water; cover, and simmer over low heat 2 hrs., replenishing water if necessary.

Add remaining boiling water, salt, and vegetables, and cook, covered,  longer, or until meat and vegetables are tender.

Remove meat and vegetables to hot platter. 

Rib Shopping Tip

Most cattle are fed a diet of grass until they are sent to a feedlot – where they are finished on corn. When possible, choose beef from cattle that are “100% grass fed” - it will be more expensive, but better for your health.

Rib Cooking Tip

The method used to cook beef is dependent on the cut. Cuts that are more tender, like filet mignon, should be cooked for a relatively short amount of time over high heat by grilling or sautéing. While less tender cuts, like brisket and short ribs, should be cooked for a longer time with lower heat by braising or stewing.
