Keto Braised Short Ribs

This short ribs recipe is so easy and delicious. Not using flour and wine cuts the carbs in this recipe to super low. Beef stock and herbs add a ton of flavor. The end result is tender meat that falls off the bone and melts in your mouth. I like to serve it with mashed cauliflower. This recipe is enough to feed a crowd, a great family meal. It freezes really well. Leftovers can be frozen in freezer bags for up to two months and make a great takeaway lunch.
