  • 6 beef bone-in short ribs or around 1kg I asked the butcher to cut them up to fit my casserole dish
  • 1 large onion chopped
  • 6 cloves garlic peeled
  • 2 cups mushrooms thickly sliced (optional but adds a delicious flavour)
  • 2 carrots thickly sliced
  • 2 potatoes thickly sliced lengthways
  • sea salt
  • cracked black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons mixed dry herbs like rosemary thyme, oregano
  • 2 cups chicken or beef stock


  • Preheat oven to 200 C
  • Season the short ribs with sea salt and black pepper and put onion, whole garlic cloves, mushrooms, carrot and potatoes in a large casserole dish then the beef ribs on top.
  • Sprinkle over the herbs and pour in the stock. Cover, reduce oven heat to 140 C and cook for 4 hours
  • Serve with steamed zucchini, cauliflower and broccoli.
  • Make sure to pour some of the delicious juices over the dish once served (you can see why mash potato makes a great options!)
