Short ribs braised in red wine
- 5 pound bone-in beef short ribs
- Kosher salt, freshly ground black pepper, and garlic powder (not garlic salt)
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 3 medium onions, chopped
- 3 medium carrots, peeled, chopped
- 2 celery stalks, chopped
- 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon tomato paste
- 1 750-milliliter bottle dry red wine
- 2 tablespoons cup chopped parsley
- 8 sprigs thyme
- 4 sprigs oregano
- 2 sprigs rosemary
- 2 fresh or dried bay leaves
- 4 cups low-salt beef stock
Preheat oven to 350°F. Season short ribs with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Heat oil in a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Working in 2 batches, brown short ribs on all sides, about 8 minutes per batch. Transfer short ribs to a plate. Pour off all but 3 tablespoons drippings from pot.
Add onions, carrots, and celery to pot and cook over medium-high heat, stirring often, until onions are browned, about 5 minutes. Add flour and tomato paste; cook, stirring constantly, until well combined and deep red, 2-3 minutes. Stir in wine, then add short ribs with any accumulated juices. Bring to a boil; lower heat to medium and simmer until wine is reduced by half, about 25 minutes. Add all herbs to pot along with garlic. Stir in stock. Bring to a boil, cover, and transfer to oven.
Cook until short ribs are tender, 2-2 1/2 hours. Transfer short ribs to a platter. Strain the sauce from pot into a measuring cup. Spoon fat from surface of sauce and discard. Season sauce to taste with additional salt and pepper. Serve over mashed potatoes with sauce.
