  • Sprinkle short ribs with salt and pepper then sear ribs on all sides in cast iron frying pan. Once seared, nestle ribs in the mixture inside the enamel cast iron dutch oven.
  • Slow cook in low oven (around 300 degrees) for approximately 5 hours or until the meat is easily pulled from the bones. (*Note - this step can also be accomplished in a pressure cooker in much less time. Follow your manufacturer's instructions)

Carmelized Onions:

Gravy Prep:

  • When the short ribs are finished, remove them from the dutch oven and allow them to cool for a few minutes. Then shred them with a fork. Set aside.
  • Reduce the liquids in the dutch oven until slightly thickened, then add the butter and blend with an immersion blender until it looks glossy. Taste and adjust the seasoning as necessary.

Burger Patty Prep:

  • Mix the ground beef, worcestershire sauce, chopped rosemary, salt and pepper and the rest of the rib meat.
