Short Ribs with Garlic Head Sun Dried Tomato Sauce

Alright, so this picture really doesn't do this dish justice but Oh My Goodness! These were some of the best short ribs I have EVER had! I love this bbq sauce from Garlic Head because it's not smokey, but rather more like a tomato-y, garlic-y, thick paste. So I thought why not make a sauce with it. As I'm typing this my mouth is literally watering just remembering the taste, that's how good this was. I only started making short ribs myself within the past year, and I'm glad I did because they're so easy! Simply brown your meat, put all of your ingredients in to a Dutch oven, then let it cook. It's the perfect Sunday afternoon meal! This sauce would probably work well with a nice pork roast or even chicken thighs and if you don't have hours to cook your meal, I bet a slow cooker would work as well. 

Short Ribs with Garlic Head Sun Dried Tomato Sauce
4 lb. Beef Chuck Short Ribs (approx. 10 ribs)
1 tbsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1/4 c. Sun Dried Tomatoes, chopped
1/4 c. Fresh Basil, chopped
1/4 c. Scallions, chopped
2 c. Low-Sodium Beef Broth
1 c. Garlic Head Gold BBQ Sauce
1 c. White Wine (I used Chardonnay)
Kosher Salt, to taste
Fresh Ground Black Pepper, to taste

Heat the oil in Dutch oven (or a large pot with a lid that can go in the oven), add half of the ribs and season with salt and pepper. Brown on all sides  until there is no pink showing then remove and set aside. Repeat for the remaining ribs. Next, add the tomatoes, basil, and scallions to the pot and saute for 5 minutes to release the flavors. Add in the beef broth, Garlic Head BBQ Sauce and wine and bring to a boil. Remove from the heat, add back in the ribs, cover and bake at 350 degrees for 2 1/2 hours; stirring every hour. Remove from the oven and place the ribs on a serving dish. Bring the sauce to a boil and let it reduce down for approximately 10 minutes, then pour over the ribs.  (If you like a thicker sauce, you can thicken it with equal parts flour or cornstarch and cold water mixture). Serves 4-6.
