Are you ready for these Peach and Ginger Braised Short Ribs? They are amazingly comforting and incredibly flavorful and so delicious! Today I’m sharing my secrets for tender, delicious and flavorful beef ribs.
Until just recently I didn’t really like short ribs. I think the problem was the cooking methods that I was trying. I thought that I needed to boil the heck out of them or cook them in some sort of pungent concoction. After several test runs, I have changed my mind. I like short ribs, A LOT!
I got this shiny new 3 1/2 quart Le Creuset Braiser (in my new favorite Caribbean color) that makes cooking short ribs a breeze. I tell you, the pan really does make a difference.
I seasoned the short ribs with salt and pepper and added a little bacon fat to the braiser and browned the short ribs really quickly. I poured brewed coffee over the ribs, threw in some garlic, put the lid on it and let it cook in the oven for about 3 hours. There’s my secrets: LeCreuset Braiser, Bacon Fat and Coffee!
Just before the ribs came out of the oven, I made a flavorful sauce with peach preserves, orange juice, fresh ginger, garlic and soy sauce. I poured this over the ribs and simmered them for about another 30 minutes.

for the sauce:
- 1 cup Bonne Maman Peach Preserves
- 1/2 cup orange juice
- 1 inch chunk fresh ginger, peeled and sliced
- 1 teaspoon minced garlic

- Pat short ribs with paper towels to dry and season with salt and pepper. Add bacon fat to braiser and place over medium-high heat. Add ribs and brown on all sides. Pour brewed coffee over ribs and add 1 teaspoon minced garlic. Cover and place in the oven.
- Just before short ribs come out of the oven, prepare the sauce.
- In a small sauce pan add all of the sauce ingredients and cook, stirring often until it comes to a slight boil. Lower to simmer and for 5 minutes. Remove from heat.
- Remove ribs from the braiser and drain cooking liquid. Pour sauce into braiser and add ribs, turing to coat.
- Place over very low heat and simmer 30 minutes or until ready to serve.
