Servings 4


  • 2 pounds bone in short ribs
  • 3 cups pomegranate juice divided
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly cracked black pepper
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 clove garlic crushed
  • 2 cups shaved Brussels sprouts
  • Parsley for garnish
  • Pomegranate arils for garnish


  • Marinate short ribs in 2 cups pomegranate juice for 24 hours, flipping periodically.
  • Then, discard marinade and dry the ribs really well as to not affect the vacuum sealing. Season generously with salt and pepper and sous vide at 146 degrees F for 48 hours.
  • Meanwhile, sometime in the two day cooking process, whip up some quick pickled sprouts. Combine water, vinegar, sugar, salt, and garlic in a medium saucepan over high heat. Cook until sugar is dissolved. Then pour over shaved Brussels and let cool. You can make these up to five days ahead of time.
  • Once your short ribs are cooked to perfection, pour liquid from bag into a small saucepan (don’t waste that!) and add 1 cup pomegranate juice. Bring to a simmer and reduce until the sauce reduces to 1/4 the volume. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • I seared the short ribs in a dry pan to add a crust. Toss short ribs in sauce, plate, and garnish with the slaw and parsley. Pomegranate arils would also be pretty here!
