These Paleo short ribs are fall off the bone tender and hardly any work. Perfect for a fancy weekend dinner.


  • 2 1/2 pounds Beef Short Ribs (bone-in, cut into 2-3 inch pieces)
  • Real Salt * (to taste)
  • Ground Pepper (to taste)
  • 2 Tbl Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 Sweet Onion (Sliced)
  • 3 Cloves Garlic (Sliced)
  • 2 Tbl Tomato Paste
  • 3/4 Cup Red Wine
  • 1 1/2 Cups Beef Broth
  • 4 Rosemary Sprigs


  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.
  2. Heat the olive oil over medium/high heat in a ceramic coated cast iron pot.

  7. Add the garlic and saute for 30 seconds.
