Short Rib Pot Pie

Now…. Let’s go straight into the recipe…..

Recipe Notes:

Braising is a method where the meat is browned in some fat (I use oil here)  and then cooked for a lengthy amount of time in liquid which in turn will reduce some of the fat and the fibers of the meat will soften and basically fall apart. This enhances the meat flavor and gives the most mouth watering texture to your meat. This is probably my favorite way to cook red meat!

For this recipe I use my single crust pie recipe, preheating the oven to 425 and baking for 25-35 minutes or until the top of the crust is a golden brown color. I like to use milk to brush on the top of this pie for more of a matte look however you may use an egg wash as well (which in turn will create more of a shiny appearance).

  1. First salt & pepper generously all sides of short ribs and let them sit at room temperature for about 20 minutes. Preheat your oven to 350.
  2. In a large pan add your ¼ cup oil, and short ribs, browning on all sides, about 5 minutes over medium high heat.
  3. Place in a dutch oven, or pot of choice (oven proof)
  4. Next add your broth, red wine, cider vinegar, soy sauce & honey to the pot. Mix together.
  5. Place in oven for 2½ - 3 hours, until meat has softened and pulls apart easily.
  6. Remove from oven, set aside.
  7. Preheat oven to 425.
  8. Next in a pot, full of boiling water add your carrots and potatoes. Boil for about 8 minutes or until just tender.
  9. While those are boiling in a pan (you may use same pan you browned meat in) add 1 tbsp olive oil & onions. Cook until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add your garlic. Saute for another minute. Add peas. Once carrots & potatoes are done boiling, add them and cook for about another two minutes.
  10. Add vegetables to short ribs/broth. Using a fork, tear/shred the short ribs.
  11. Whisk in ½ cup flour until just thickened (the pie will thicken as it bakes)
