country style ribs with rustic fire-roasted tomato sauce


  • 2 pounds beef Country-Style Ribs
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt & pepper
  • 4 cups sliced assorted wild mushrooms (such as cremini, oyster and shiitake)
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 2 cans (14 1/2 ounces each) fire-roasted tomatoes, undrained
  • 5 1/2 cups hot cooked bowtie pasta
  • sliced fresh basil and shredded Parmesan cheese


Heat oil in stockpot over medium heat until hot. Brown half of beef ribs; remove from stockpot. Repeat with remaining beef. Season with salt and pepper.

Add mushrooms and garlic to stockpot; cook 3 to 5 minutes or until tender, stirring occasionally. Stir in tomatoes. Return beef to stockpot; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover tightly and simmer 1-3/4 to 2 hours or until beef is fork-tender.

Remove beef; cut into bite size pieces. Keep warm. Skim fat from cooking liquid. Combine beef, pasta and cooking liquid in same pan; heat over medium heat until heated through, stirring occasionally.

Garnish beef mixture with basil and cheese, if desired.
