Wolf Gourmet Multi-Function Cooker Braised Short Rib Ragu

Let the Wolf Gourmet Multi-Function Cooker make your dinners effortless. We chose short rib for our ragu, but you can substitute other cuts of beef, pork, and even chicken!

PREP TIME: 20 minutes
COOK TIME: 3.5-4.5 hours
YIELD: 6-8 servings


  • 2-3 pounds bone in short rib
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • 1 pound diced mushroom
  • 1 pound pearl onions
  • 1 – 28oz can crushed tomatoes
  • 1 cup red wine
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional: parmesan cheese rind

Method of Preparation

  1. Preheat your Wolf Gourmet Multi-Function Cooker to Sauté/Sear High.
  2. Pat the short rib dry and remove the silver skin covering the surface of the meat on the bone side. This will not braise down and shred, so I find it easier to remove before cooking. Season the short rib with salt and pepper.
  3. Prepare your vegetables by shredding the carrots, washing and dicing the mushrooms, and by removing the outer paper skin of the pearl onions.
  4. Once your Wolf Gourmet Multi-Function Cooker beeps to let you know it is preheated, add the olive oil and sear all sides of the short rib.
  5. Once seared, adjust the mode to Manual Low. Add the vegetables, wine, canned tomatoes, and bay leaves. You can also add a piece of parmesan rind at this point if you would like.
  6. Let braise for about 3.5-4.5 hours, or until the meat is tender and ready to shred.
  7. Remove the beef and let cool for 5-10 minutes before shredding. Using a ladle, skim the top of the sauce to remove the oil.
  8. Once the meat is shredded, slowly add the sauce it was cooked into the beef until the ragu has reached your desired consistency.
  9. Serve over pasta, egg noodles, mashed potatoes, or rice.
