Simply reheat and assemble the day it's served. Spend less time prepping the day of the party and more time enjoying with the family!


Beef Short Ribs over Portobello Mushrooms


  • 3lb bone-in beef short ribs
  • Sea salt
  • 2 onions, diced
  • 1/4 cup and 2 TBSP olive oil
  • 1 cup red wine
  • 1/4 cup tomato paste
  • 2 cups beef broth
  • 3 bay leaves
  • 2 sprigs thyme
  • 6 portobello mushroom caps
  • Balsamic vinegar
  • 2 springs rosemary, chopped
  • 2 tsp gelatin, bloomed
  • 2 TBSP flat-leaf parsley, chopped


  1. Season the meat with salt. In a sauté pan, brown the meat on the both sides. Place in a resting pan.
  2. In the same pan, sauté the onions in 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Add the wine, tomato paste, broth, bay leaves, and thyme. Bring to a simmer.
  3. Pour over the short ribs. Cover with foil. Bake at 325 degrees for 3 hours or until fork-tender
  4. Toss the mushrooms with 1/4 cup of olive oil, balsamic vinegar, rosemary, and salt. Lay on a baking sheet. Roast at 375 degrees for 15 minutes or until cooked through.
  5. Remove from the cooking liquid and set aside. Reduce the cooking liquid until 1-1/2 cups remain. Strain. Stir in the gelatin to thicken.
  6. To serve: Place the mushroom cap on a plate. Top with 6 ounces of braised short ribs. Drizzle the sauce over the top. Sprinkle with flat-leaf parsley.
  7. Enjoy!
