  • Melt your butter and oil in a deep cast iron skillet and heat to high. Add the short ribs and sear on all sides until you have a good crusty sear on all sides. Remove your short ribs and set aside.
  • In the same skillet add the onions, garlic, beef broth, wine, brown sugar, and Worcestershire sauce. Bring to a simmer on top of the stove on medium low for about 15-20 minutes. 
  • Make a slurry of the cornstarch by adding it to ½ cup of cold water stirred until well mixed and then whisk this into the the mixture that has been simmering until thickened into a nice sauce. 
  • Return the short ribs to the skillet making sure to coat the ribs with the sauce. Put a lid on your skillet or cover tight with aluminum foil and put into preheated oven at 275F for 4 hours.
  • Prepare your potatoes and carrots by tossing them with some oil and salt and pepper and roast them along with the ribs on a sheet pan or another skillet for the last one hour of the braising time.  Add the broccoli rabe to the sheet pan the last half hour, as they don’t take as long to cook. Add more seasoning of salt and pepper as desired.
  • When done place the ribs on a plate and serve with your roasted vegetables and potatoes, and a nice side of the braised rib gravy.
