Yield: 2 - 4
Prep Time: 10 Minutes
Cook Time: 120 Minutes


• 1/2 cup all-purpose flour for coating
• 2 tsp salt
• 1 pinch ground black pepper
• 4 lbs beef short ribs
• 2 tbsp vegetable oil
• 1 cup water
• 1 cup stewed tomatoes
• 1 clove garlic, minced
• 6 potatoes, peeled and cubed
• 3 onions, chopped
• 6 carrots, chopped
• 1 1/2 tbsp all-purpose flour
• 4 tbsp water


In a bowl, combine the 1/2 cup flour, salt, and ground black pepper. Roll the short ribs in the seasoned flour.

In a large pot, heat the oil and brown the ribs well on all sides. Pour in 1 cup boiling water, tomatoes, and garlic. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 1 1/2 hours, adding more water if necessary.

Place the potatoes, onions, and carrots in the pot. Continue to simmer for another 30 minutes to 1 hour, or until all vegetables are tender. Remove the meat and vegetables to a serving platter.

In a separate small bowl, dissolve 1 1/2 tablespoons flour and 2 tablespoons water for every one cup liquid remaining in the pot. Add this to the pot and stir well until thickened. Pour over meat and vegetables.
