- 2 pound beef short ribs
- 1 medium onion
- 4 medium carrots
- 12 small radishes
- 2 cloves garlic
- 4 sprigs thyme
- 2 large bay leave
- 2 cups low sodium chicken stock
- 1 1/2 cups dry red wine
- 2 tbsp tomato paste
- 2 tsp kosher salt
- 1 tsp black pepper
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- Season beef on all sides with salt and pepper.
- Sear/ brown short ribs on all sides on medium to med/high heat in dutch oven with 2 tbsp olive oil. Work in batches so beef browns and does not steam. Will take around 15 minutes per batch.
- When beef is done add half an onion (uncut) to dutch oven along with 2 uncut carrots. Also, add garlic, thyme and bay leaves to pot.
- Add wine to pot and scrape all brown bits from pan with wooden spoon. Let cook for 2 minutes to burn off alcohol and then add chicken stock and tomato paste. Stir to combine and cook 2 minutes more to blend paste into sauce.
- Add beef back to pot and submerge in sauce. Cover pot with lid and place in 325 degree oven for 2 hours.
- Chop remaining onion and carrots into bite sized pieces. Quarter or halve radishes depending on size. Reserve these vegetables for later.
- Check halfway through and stir gently. Cover again and let short ribs finish cooking.
- Take pot from oven and and remove short ribs. This is a good time to remove the rib bones if you desire.
- Strain sauce and discard vegetables that were used for braising.
- Place strained sauce in dutch oven and add reserved vegetables from step 6.
- Cook vegetables in pot until tender (Roughly 20-30 minutes). Taste sauce while vegetables are cooking and make adjustments if necessary. *The sauce should not be too salty so might need to add some salt at this point.
- Serve short ribs topped with sauce and vegetable mixture. Enjoy.
