I have been thinking of the best way for me to describe my love for amazing kitchen toys and I finally nailed it. My girlfriend LOVES Lululemon!! Not like a junior high first boyfriend love, but like a lifelong partner for eternity love. She has amassed quite a collection and it is always anchored on the same thing, Quality. For a long time I thought it was a really good story until I started realizing that I was going through cheap clothes and cheap kitchen toys at a cyclic rate. Lindsey though, still has the same Lululemon years later and continually uses and wears it while it works perfectly without having to spend anymore money. The lesson I learned, is besides clothing that kitchen appliances and pans are the other place to invest in quality gear that lasts.
Just in case some of you don’t know, 4 years ago I had never cooked a recipe in my life. Honestly, I ate takeout every day and never learned how to cook. Once I decided to take my health serious and kick some serious conditions booty, I jumped into the kitchen. Not knowing much, I ran out to some cheap stores that need not be named and bought the cheapest knives, cheapest pans, and cheapest utensils I could thinking they would all work the same. I quickly learned that I was wrong but still continued to hold onto that theory until about my 4th pan set in 2 years. That was about the time I realized I wanted cooking and blogging to be my life and I decided to take the plunge and buy myself a Le Creuset 12 inch saute pan. I still use that pan to this day and will forever continue to until I get to replace it again with a newer version.
Wow I just realized I am blabbing a lot so I will get to the point. When Le Creuset reached out and offered to send me some new toys while offering some to giveaway to you I was PUMPED. I said yes before I even read the whole email but luckily I didn’t agree to anything crazy. With the help of my friend we came up with this simple and delicious Braised Short Rib dish using the 4.5 Quart Saute Pan I am giving away.
This dish is jam packed with flavor, easy to make and best of all only uses 1 pan. I know most of you are like me and dislike doing dishes so this can be a weeknight meal or a weekend feast. The flavor combinations are also endless with this dish so feel free to use what you have in season. You can add more vegetables or replace the carrots with a different root vegetable. I would love to hear what you substitute so leave a comment with your creative ideas so I can keep learning. If you are still reading this, thank you for drinking a big cup of coffee today to combat my run on sentences. They are closing now while I leave you with two simple instructions. First one, is make this recipe as it’s AMAZING. Second, enter the giveaway below so you have a chance to win this phenomenal pan from the phenomenal company Le Creuset. Just to be clear, I only endorse products that I love and use myself and I whole heartedly stand by their pans. Enjoy :)
Braised Short Ribs
- 3 pounds bone in short ribs
- 2 onions sliced
- 1 large fennel stalk sliced (fronds reserved)
- 6 carrots peeled and sliced
- 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
- 2 tablespoons coconut oil
- 2 tablespoons coconut aminos
- 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
- 2 cups beef broth
- salt and pepper to taste
- In the Le Creuset 4.5 quart saute pan, heat your coconut oil over medium high heat
- Liberally salt and pepper the short ribs
- Working in 2 batches, brown short ribs on all sides, about 8 minutes per batch and then set your short ribs aside on a plate
- In the pan you seared the meat, add the onions and fennel stalks to the pan and cook until onions are soft and tender, approximately 10 minutes
- Add the beef stock, coconut aminos and balsamic vinegar to deglaze the pan ensuring you scrap the pan to get all the delicious bits up
- Add the meat back to the pan followed by the carrots, fennel fronds and italian seasoning while giving a quick stir
- Cover the pan, reduce the heat to low and simmer for 60-90 minutes or until your meat is fork tender and falls off the bone
- Serve and enjoy
- Follow steps 1 through 3
- Once your short ribs are browned, add them to a slow cooker with all your other ingredients
- Cook on high for 7-8 hours or low for 10-12 hours, until the meat is very tender and falling off the bone

Torsten Fleischer | Personal Trainer Berlin
yummi. Braised ribs. Definitely a dish for the autumn time. I will try at the weekend.
Thank you for your effort and your inspiration.
George! I made these for dinner this evening and they are AWESOME! I will make these again and again. The fennel adds a tremendous flavor level. Thank you for sharing!
These ribs are AMAZING! I served them over the parsnip puree from “The Paleo Kitchen”. I am more excited than usual for work to be done so I can go home and enjoy the leftovers.
Wow! This is REALLY good. I had my doubts when I read “balsamic vinegar, I’ve never cooked with it, love it on salads, but I’m SO glad I tried it. VERY flavorful. To bad I don’t eat rice because it would simply rock with this dish. Thank you for providing us with some super recipes.
i would make beef stew
I’d make Indian Butter Chicken with this pan.
Tagged a pic to Civilized Caveman on FB with my poor non-stick, too small pan. Food looks amazing though! 70 min to go!
This looks beautiful despite my ‘too small nonstick pan’. I used rainbow carrots. If I could post a pic here I would. Definitely need to replace my non-stick pan! :-)
Would love to make duck in it and short ribs will be 2nd choice!!
A huge frittata
I would love to try this braised beef recipe if I win the pan! (Or if I don’t! It looks delicious!)
I would make these short ribs if I won!
Can this recipe also be done in a slow cooker?
Yes it can. Look for an update to the recipe.
I would make your awesome sweet potato zoodles
I want to make those short ribs – they look delicious!
I would definitely try the braised ribs recipe you posted in the article first. The whole family loves all your recipes. :)
First thing I’d make? My new hubby happy with some delicious paleo recipes!
I would make my children’s favorite, Porcupine Balls!
I’d use my new Le Creuset 4.5 Stainless Steel Saute Pan to make this scrumptious looking short rib dish!
The first thing I’d make in this wonderful Pan is Seared Pacific Halibut with Herbed Vegetable Ribbons and Couscous! I’d also love to make your Braised Short Ribs recipe ~ Looks delicious! Thanks for the chance!
I will need to try this. Looks Yummy!
My husband made this for us. We are most of it the night he cooked it. Delicious, easy and will be a standard fir our Paleo cooking. Thanks.
I’d make the delicious braised short ribs of course!
This looks good!
Being that i am mexican, the first thing i would make (or have my wife make) would be some menudo or pozole.

I’m listening to your second visit to Jonathan Bailor’s podcast and you have such an amazing positive message. Thank you for sharing.
My grandma just showed me how to make this Italian garlic chicken drum stick recipe and this pan would be perfect for making them so that is what I would make first! Plus they are delicious and paleo :)
Honestly? I would make these braised short ribs! I think short ribs are one of the most comforting foods on Earth!
This isn’t very inventive, but honestly those short ribs look amazing and fairly easy for my limited cooking skills – so that’s what I would make first in the Le Creuset Pan!
I will make beef stew first most likely.
The FIRST thing I would make in this amazing pan is these AMAZING short ribs!!
I am attending a Vietnamese festival in Carthage, MO this week and hope to find some great inspirations to create some great one-pot Paleo dishes that would be awesome in this saute pan. Love the short ribs recipe and will be making soon as well. Thanks for all your hard work in creating such tantalizing dishes and inspiring healthy living.
Wow this pan is greatly needed in my kitchen! I’m not sure exactly what I’d make first but it would probably include chicken. That recipe looks amazing ; )

I will be making the braised short-ribs this weekend for sure. Got a package of my own home raised beef ribs in the freezer, and adding some fresh carrots, onions, and turnips from my gardens. Eat local!
Those short ribs look amazing, I would make those for sure!
The Le Creuset pan would be a perfect addition to my part vegan (my partner) and part paleo (myself) kitchen. I cook all of my meat dishes in my cast iron skillet, which I refuse to soap. We’ve contemplated buying a second one, but having a stainless pan that can be fully washed and “de-meated” after each use, means we could both use it for our respective recipes and use less storage space in the kitchen! I have many recipes for delicious curries and stews I would love to try in here…several of which are both paleo and vegan. :)
I always knew you would do great things George..Keep it up.

Let Cruset cookware is unbelievable! I would love to win some! And I need to makeep those short ribs this week!
If I had this pan, I’d make those short ribs today! But I will have to wait until I win it! Just picked up our side of beef for the year so I definitely have some wonderful short ribs that want to be made in this new pan!
The first thing I would make is probably these short ribs – I’ve never made them before! Love this giveaway!
Braised chicken or these amazing looking short ribs! And meat sauce! And… my goodness, so many things!
I would make chicken tikka masala
I would have to try out this pan by making my staple breakfast skillet recipe, which is a hybrid of sweet potato hash and a healthier paleo version of the homemade corn beef hash from my childhood. As a matter of fact just thinking about it makes me hungry now!
I would use the new pan to make sausage medley for my family. It’s a favorite that I currently use my wok for but would work better in this pan
I would make spicy shrimp and sausage Gumbo
cant wait to try it.
If I won, the first recipe I would make would be your Braised Short Ribs, of course! :)
Looks wonderful. Wish us Canucks could enter though. :(
These look great! I would add tomatoes to mine:)
I love short ribs. I can’t wait to try this recipe.
I would make an omelette with eggs, onion, mushroom and spinach, with avocado on the side.
I’d make these ribs of course! Or some other giant hunk of meat…
It looks so good!
I would love to make these braised short ribs, they look delicious :)
Boy those ribs look awfully tempting!
Id love to make just about anything – I’m hungry
The first thing I would make would be this recipe because it sounds delicious! Or a stir-fry, this would be a great pan for that!
How did you learn to cook? I love to cook, buy don’t know any technique and would have no idea how to even begin making my own recipe. I am even more impressed by you now!
I would try the braised short ribs of course!
I always cook the same thing, meatballs. I’m hoping a new pan will encourage me to try more.
Any of your recipes! Every one I’ve tried so far is great.
Love your work George! Relatively new to Paleo although not new to food.. he he.. I threw everything away some time ago and started life afresh.. a saute pan of this quality would be a dream come true about now… Big fan in the land down under..
The versatile chicken lends so much of herself to our breakfast table. Forgo the eggs and enjoy the meat to get a scrumptious jump on your day. SERVES 2
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil 1 small yellow onion, chopped 1 garlic clove, minced 8 ounces fresh asparagus, chopped 1 large carrot, cut into matchsticks 8 ounces leftover Roasted Trussed Chicken, shredded (page 82) 8 ounces fresh, raw spinach Juice from ½ lemon In a cast iron skillet over medium flame, sauté onion and garlic for about five minutes or until tender. Add asparagus and carrot and continue to sauté for an additional five minutes. Mix in chicken and stir for one minute. Fold in spinach, remove from heat, and cover. Spinach will wilt from the steam. Remove cover and drizzle mixture with fresh lemon juice.

I would make my favorite chicken curry recipe. Thank you!
i would make those ribs or sweet potato hash.
Love the recipe amd love the give away. I rather have less kitchen toys, but the ones I have have quality! Simplify!
I’d love to try these ribs!
Ooh, it would probably be Tuscan soup. I know, not quite a soup pot but that size works well to brown the bacon and pork sausage.
I would make something with Bacon–it’s the only way to get my family eating the same foods as me!
I would make those short ribs! They look amazing and are my favorite! Thanks!
I have been drooling over the new Le Creuset stainless steel pans since they have been advertised. So I am super excited about this giveaway! If I should win it, the first thing I will make is this delicious looking short ribs recipe above. However, I would probably add parsnips, turnips and sweet potatoes to the mix.
I would use it to make some teriyaki chicken but those braised short ribs are calling my names as well.
I would love this! I’m wanting to build up my kitchen! Actually, I have some grass fed short ribs in the freezer and was wanting a new recipe for them!
I would make the delicious cabbage slaw with pecans and bacon from your cookbook. Yum. I crave it.
I would use it to begin paleo-izing Julia Child’s recipes.
I will make this short rib recipe first. I have 15 to 20 lbs. of lovely, grass-fed short ribs in the freezer right now just waiting for this pan to arrive ;-) Thank you for the opportunity to win!
I don’t care if you have run on sentences or not. Your enthusiasm is contagious. Thank you for all that you do!
I would make some delicious Paleo Fried Caulirice and serve it with some Pineapple meatballs for a tropical flair.
I would make meatballs or roast a chicken!
This looks amazing! Can’t wait to give it a try.
I will try this out as soon as I win the pan :)
I would first make your recipe for braised short ribs, then pork and sauerkraut!
I am not sure what the first thing I would make in my new pan, but I think I would def like to try your Braised Short Ribs recipe. Yum!
I will make perfect paleo burgers fried in bacon grease.
Ellen M Fitzpatrick
Definitely some type of stew, maybe beef stew or enchilada stew. Yum!
Today I think pork and sauerkraut sounds good!
Spaghetti sauce (w/ ground turkey)
I’d love to make my mom’s red beans and rice recipe in this!
the question is not what WOULD i make, but what WOULDN’T i make? Pork belly and greens, garnish with cherries? Morrocan chicken thighs? Lamb shank? Sososo many possibilities!
I think some ossobuco would be great!
This recipe just made me so hungry! I’d go raid my garden and try this recipe first!
The biggest thing I took from this post was that you only started this lifestyle a few years ago. That is huge motivation for me, because I look back and can count the years that I have wanted to start, but haven’t. It is hard work, but it can be accomplished in a relatively small amount of time (compared to a lifetime of feeling beat down, unhappy, and looking for the next “start” date).
All it takes is that first step, then the next one, and the next one after that! Just keep doing what your doing :)
Toughie! I might have to make some meatballs and zoodles!
Susan - aka Knitters-Delight
Such an awesome and exciting giveaway. Gotta try the short ribs….
Some meat balls and sauce would be great!
This looks delicious. Hope I win
I would make a nice braised pork belly. YUMMMMMMMY!
Chicken Tikka masala!
Goodness, what to make? The choices…Well, I would have to say some rabbit ragu to go over some butternut papperdelle “zoodles”….
After reading this recipe I too would make the braised shirt ribs. Yumm
I would definitely make these short ribs using the pan, but beef bourginon would be my next adventure with it.
First thing I would make with this pan is some chili!
I would steam up some veggies and make a stir fry!. This recipe sounds delicious too!
Lambchops … totally!
Brain hurts with all the possibilities. This recipe looks amazing so would probably be a great way to christen. But….blackberries are in season and I’m thinking some type of blackberry reduction and pork would be pretty frickin fantastic too. You should really send it to me. :)
The first thing I would make if I won this pan is meatballs in homemade sauce. I have been needing a new pan that could hold the sauce and the meatballs. :)
Swiss Steak, a favorite!
I would make Meatballs in a nice garlicky butter sauce with veggies!
I would definitely make this savory looking recipe. I have yet to be disappointed with a Caveman recipe!
Braised Short ribs in MY new pan sounds great to me.
I would love to try the braised short ribs in this post!
My husband is going to LOVE this! I can’t wait to try this recipe out. Thanks!
Ooh I love short ribs and can’t wait to try this recipe. It would be great in a brand new pan!

Beef Stroganoff for sure would awesome in this pan!
It’s chilly here so I’m craving some braised lamb shanks in a tomato fennel sauce over spaghetti squash. That is the first thing I would cook.

I am so gonna try these ribs! Even without the pan!
I would love to try this recipe in the pans!
I’d make this short rib recipe.

I’ve got a great beef stew recipe that I’d try in the new pot!
I bet lamb shanks would be wonderful done in that pot.
Something with boneless chicken thighs :)
This recipe looks like a good start.
Oh man, I don’t even know what I would make first. I’d be so excited to use a Le Creuset pan that I wouldn’t know what to cook! I guess I’d make the braised short ribs listed here – might as well make the recipe that came with the giveaway!
I would have to agree with everyone else, one of your awesome recipes.
I would definitely try this short rib recipe if I won this. I so need some pans of this quality.
Not a real fennel fan, my dad is old and picky but he is liking the Paleo things I make as long as he doesn’t think they ARE paleo!
Thanks for all that you do! you are amazing!
I can’t wait to try this recipe! It looks delicious!
I cook every day( I have to, to save money plus it’s way healthier!)and I cook for a living(I love to cook but the pay isn’t high). I could really use some good cookware!
I would probably make this first, it sounds so yummy :)
Oh, these ribs look great! I must try making them soon.
I’d make this recipe first cuz I love fennel! I looks great.
I’d have to try this recipe first cuz I love fennel! It looks great.
Thank you for this recipe. I have some short ribs in my freezer and had no idea how to use them! This looks perfect. Thanks for a great giveaway as well!
The short ribs or lamb as someone mentioned would be awesome foods to break in the pan!
Pick me pllllleeeeeaaasseee
I’d like make some chicken cacciatore but I want to try this recipe as well!
Would have to say that it would be chili
I would make this recipe, duh! =) Then I would make something with chorizo. Because, chorizo.
I would absolutely try the short ribs. They look amazing!
I would make a lamb stew!!
I’ve been following a lot of your recipies and finally purchased your cookbook. Best investment ever. Thanks to both of you for that work of art!
my favorite pans … and we live on a farm that just butchered a grass-fed cow …. yum for this rib recipe!
I would break in a new pan like that with this short ribs recipe. Love that you included veggies in it and that it’s AIP compliant.
I’d make Paleo Fried Chicken. Yummmmmmm
Paleo fried chicken! Then I’d try the short ribs recipe.
I’d definitely try this short rib recipe :) Summer + ribs = perfect.
Pan fried buffalo burgers. Maybe some sweet potato chips in there too
I’ve never made ribs before, but I would be willing to try! Especially with this awesome pan!!
I am finally learning those same lessons about quality and am upgrading my kitchen equipment too. I can’t believe I have some fennel growing in my garden too! So please send me the pan….
I would really like to make this Braised Short Ribs recipe. Either that or some sort of dish that called for lots of garlic and veggies. There’s just something about sautéed veggies and garlic that makes me smile.
Hmmm so many options! I love the idea of a curry though…..THEN these short ribs!
This is a gorgeous pan; I like the point you make about quality costing more in the beginning but lasting sooo much longer, gonna try that on my husband!
Wow, what a giveaway! I would make these short ribs!!
I would make my much loved beef poor roast. And then try these short ribs. Lovely pan. In fact, I think I might have to try a cobbler in it too.
I’d try braising something (maybe the short ribs!) in this saute pan since it’s nice and deep!
Hooray! I love le crueset- especially for how easily their pieces clean up!
hmmm, that’s a toughy…I’m leaning towards stew or chili :)
Quality equipment is da bomb! I would make braised lamb shanks. Mmm, I can taste them already.
I love your site and your passion for food!! I would make these short ribs first, for sure! Thank you for your dedication to your subscribers…you never disappoint! :)
I would make sloppy joes.
This recipe sounds amazing! Would love to make with rutabaga too!
I would not feel right if I didn’t try and make this awesome recipe first! I’ve never made them before, but I have had them and I really loved ’em!
I would love to try this recipe and would make it first in that pan. But I just bought 50 lbs of grass fed beef so I have lots more wonderful food to make in it.
My first recipe would probably be something with chicken. I have two small boys and chicken is usually a safe bet for getting them to eat. However, I will definitely try out this recipe at some point.
I’m thinking the first thing I would make is Kai Si Ming (a cabbage dish my family likes).
Because this is a universal size pan, I’d be using it for pretty much everything. A good pan is kitchen karma. Except crock pot recipes, of course. :-)
Stir fry would be great to make in a big pan! ;)
The first thing I would make is smokey, bacon wrapped chicken thighs with veggies from my garden!
First thing I would make? A giant pot of bolognese with spaghetti squash!
I would try this recipe for sure with my new pan ;)
Yummy! I would make a poached fish, with lots of spice and veggies!
I’ve been looking for a pan just like this to make my mother-in-law’s Chile rojo recipe- would love to win this!
What would I make first with this pan? I’ve never made short ribs so this recipe looks like a yummy one to try!
This recipe sounds amazing. Would probably taste even better if I had the Le Creuset Pan to cook it in :0)
