Beef Short Rib Sliders with Francis Coppola Claret.




  • 6 lb bone-in beef short ribs
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 onions, chopped
  • 2 Tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1 (6-oz) can tomato paste
  • 2 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp chili powder
  • 1 (750-ml) bottle red wine
  • 3 cups beef broth
  • 10 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 5 cloves garlic
  • 2 (12-oz) pkg slider buns
  • Brussels Sprouts Slaw (recipe follows)


  1. Lightly season ribs with salt and pepper. Cook ribs, in batches, in hot oil in a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat until browned on all sides. Remove from pot. Discard all but 3 Tbsp drippings in pot.
  2. Cook onion in hot drippings until tender. Sprinkle flour over onions, and cook, stirring constantly, 2 minutes. Stir in tomato paste, brown sugar, and chili powder; cook 1 minute.
  3. Gradually stir in wine, broth, thyme, bay leaves, and garlic. Return ribs to pot; bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer 25 minutes.
  4. Preheat oven to 350°F. Cover pot, and transfer to oven. Bake 2 to 2½ hours or until ribs are very tender. Let stand until cool enough to handle. Shred meat from ribs, discarding fat and bone. Toss meat with enough cooking liquid to moisten.
  5. Serve meat on buns with Brussels Sprouts Slaw.
