Melt-in-your mouth short ribs are braised to perfection with a little bacon, apple juice, beef broth, and wedges of cabbage. This is a comforting meal, ideal for a cool fall or winter day. I used a steak grill seasoning on these ribs, but feel free to use your favorite seasoned salt blend.


  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil

  • 1 teaspoon steak seasoning

  • 5 pounds beef short ribs (about 8)

  • 6 slices bacon, diced

  • 1 large onion, sliced

  • 1 1/2 cups apple juice

  • 1 cup beef broth

  • 3 tablespoons cider vinegar

  • 1 head cabbage, cut into wedges

Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. Preheat oven to 325 F. In a large Dutch oven or kettle, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Rub ribs all over with seasoning blend then sear on all sides, about 2 minutes on each side.

  3. Remove ribs and set aside. Add bacon to pot and cook for about 3 to 4 minutes, until cooked but not crisp. Add onions and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes.

  4. Add ribs back to pot and add apple juice, beef broth, and cider vinegar; bring to a simmer. cover tightly and bake for 2 hours.

  5. Add cabbage, cover, and continue cooking, basting occasionally, for about 30 to 45 minutes longer, or until cabbage is tender.

Serves 4.
