Cook Method: Braise
Cook Time: 4 hours

Ingredients:
     1.5 lb boneless shortrib
     2 T vegetable oil
     1 white onion
     1 carrot
     2 stalks celery
     1 bulb fennel
     3 sprigs thyme
     1 Qt beef stock
     1 bottle red wine

 

Preheat oven to 350°. 

Salt and pepper short ribs. Heat a heavy-bottomed
Dutch oven over medium heat. Add oil, let heat for
1 minute, then add short ribs and sear 2-3 minutes
on all sides.

Add vegetables and liquid, scraping up browned bits
from the bottom of the pan. Bring to a simmer.

Cover and cook in oven for 3-4 hours, until a fork can
penetrate the meat easily.

Remove shortribs and strain vegetables from sauce.
Adjust sauce for seasoning and thicken by simmering,
uncovered, if necessary.
