  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Start off by heating some extra virgin olive oil in a heavy bottomed pot or Dutch oven; then brown the short ribs on all sides. You may have to do it in batches. Remove the cooked ribs and keep warm.
  • Next, add the garlic, sage, pumpkin puree and beef broth. Mix well; then add the ribs back to the pot.
  • Cover the pot and place in the oven for 2 1/2 hours; turning the ribs every hour.


*If you want to use less beef ribs, I would still keep the same measurements for the rest of the ingredients. You can always spoon the sauce on top of rice or egg noodles or get a nice loaf of crusty bread and dip it into the sauce.
