Here's our prediction: you are going to make this slow cooked beef with shallots for dinner, and it is going to melt in your mouth.
Servings: 4



  • Preheat the oven to 340 °F (170 °C).
  • Heat up a frying pan with olive oil on medium heat and sear the short ribs for 2 minutes on each sides.
  • Add 1⁄2 cup red wine and keep searing the ribs for a minute on each side, until the wine reduces.
  • Spread the onions at the bottom of a medium size deep baking pan and place the short ribs on top. Add the chestnuts, leek and shallots and pour in the rest of the wine.
  • Season with the date syrup, salt, pepper and thyme sprigs. Cover with parchment paper and aluminum foil and bake for 5 hours (after 4 hours, baste the short ribs with the sauce. If necessary, add water as needed).
  • Remove from the oven, let it rest for 10 minutes and serve.
