My kids love ribs! My oldest will only allow herself to have a messy face when she is eating ribs. And these braised beef ribs were no exception! She had extremely messy hands and a messy face after eating these. The meat may fall off the bone easily, but when eating ribs kids will not use forks – not mine anyways.
Pork ribs are usually our go to, but I found these braising ribs at a price that was too good to turn down. And they turned out so delicious that I will definitely be buying braising ribs again! So if you have never tried braised beef ribs, I would encourage you to do so. They are the perfect comfort food that your whole family can enjoy. Hopefully you will not be disappointed.
I love to serve anything that is saucy – such as these ribs – with garlic mashed potatoes. A slice of fresh bread would also be delicious to mop up some of the sauce. And if you are looking for some greens on your plate you can’t go wrong with broccoli, brussels sprouts or a side salad.
Braised Beef Ribs
- 7 strips Braising Ribs, cut in half
- 1 Tbsp Montreal Steak Spice

- Over medium-high heat, heat the oil in a dutch oven. Working in batches, sear both sides of the ribs and remove to a plate.

“Teach me, O LORD, the way of Your statutes, and I shall keep it to the end. Give me understanding, and I shall keep Your law; indeed, I shall observe it with my whole heart. Make me walk in the path of Your commandments, for I delight in it. Incline my heart to Your testimonies, and not to covetousness. Turn away my eyes from looking at worthless things, and revive me in Your way. Establish Your word to Your servant, who is devoted to fearing You. Turn away my reproach which I dread, for Your judgments are good. Behold, I long for Your precepts; revive me in Your righteousness.”
