    An Easy Short Ribs Recipe for a One Pot Dinner

    Who doesn’t love an easy one pot dinner recipe? Honestly, can’t tell if I love this recipe more for it’s incredible flavor or for how easy it is to clean up afterwards 😂…Let me know in the comments if you choose recipes more for their taste vs clean up!

    Serves 2


    • 4-5 pieces of short ribs

    • 1 shallot

    • 1 tbsp ground ginger

    • 5 cloves of garlic, diced

    • 1.5 tbsps gochujang

    • 1 large tomato or 6 small tomatoes, sliced into chunks

    • 6 cups water or beef stock

    • 1/2 cup red wine

    • 1 tsp fennel seeds

    • 1 tsp coriander seeds

    • 1 bay leaf

    • 2 tbsps soy sauce

    • Few sprigs of thyme or rosemary (optional but delish if you have)

    • 7-8 small potatoes, halved

    • 1 carrot, roll cut


    • Start by seasoning beef with salt and pepper on all sides, then browning in a deep set pot.

    • Once beef is browned on all sides, remove from the pot and sauté the onion, garlic, and ginger in the remaining oils.

    • Add in gochujang and cook until the paste starts to stick to the bottom of the pot.

    • Drop in the tomato chunks and deglaze with a bit of water. Once the water has reduced and tomatoes have become soft, add in the red wine.

    • Reduce the red wine by 1/2, then add in the spices, and short ribs back in.

    • Add enough water or stock to cover everything. Season with a big pinch of salt (~1 tsp) and soy sauce.

    • Cover and cook on medium low heat for 1.5 hours, making sure to add in water or stock periodically if the liquid has reduced too much.

    • After 1.5 hours, add in the potatoes and carrots to cook for another 30 mins or until soft.

    • To finish, add in 1-2 tbsps of butter to thicken up the sauce.

    • Enjoy with mash or rice!
