Flanken-Style Short Ribs With Mushrooms

Flanken-style ribs are bone-in cross-cut strips of beef chuck. In this fast main course, they’re simply seared and served on packaged nan—but mashed potatoes or polenta make great choices too.

Wine Pairing
6 flanken-style beef chuck ribs (about 2 to 2 1/4 pounds total and about 1/2-inch thick)
1 1/2 teaspoons salt, plus more to taste
1 1/2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper, plus more to taste
1 8.8-ounce package garlic or plain tandoori nan (Indian flatbread), such as Fabulous Flats brand (2 pieces)
1 to 2 tablespoons good-quality olive oil, plus more to taste
1 to 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 small white onion, finely chopped (about 3/4 cup)
3 to 4 ounces baby bella (cremini) mushrooms, washed, patted dry then cut lengthwise into thin slices; cut the slices into julienne (very thin strips; about 1 1/4 cups)
1/2 cup dry white wine, such as sauvignon blanc
1/4 cup finely chopped chives or flat-leaf parsley
Season the ribs on both sides with the salt and pepper. Have ready 1 or 2 large serving platters.

Stack the 2 large pieces of nan on top of each other, then cut into 3 long pieces of equal size (roughly the same size as the flanken-style ribs) to form 6 pieces. Place on the platters.

Heat the oil and butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add 3 of the ribs and cook for 10 to 12 minutes total (for medium-rare; or cook longer as desired), turning them over halfway through when they have browned.

Transfer the 3 flanken-style ribs to rest on 3 of the similiarly sized pieces of nan. Repeat the process; seasoning, cooking and arranging the remaining meat on the nan, adding oil and butter to the skillet as needed.

Return the skillet to medium-high heat; add the onion, mushrooms and wine. Cook for 5 to 7 minutes, stirring often, until the mushrooms have softened and the onion is barely translucent, but still has some crunch. Taste and season with salt and pepper as needed; drizzle with oil as needed. Remove from the heat, then add the chives or parsley and stir to combine.

Divide the mixture evenly on top of each portion of ribs and nan; serve warm.
