  1. Preheat oven to 315F.
  2. Heat a large dutch oven or pot to high heat with avocado oil.
  3. Salt and pepper short ribs and sear in batches on all sides.
  4. Set short ribs aside and add in onion, carrots, and celery.
  5. Sweat down the vegetables for a few minutes then add in tomato paste.
  6. Add in flour after the tomato paste has been incorporated into the vegetables.
  7. Deglaze with red wine and allow the wine to thicken for a couple minutes.
  8. Stir in beef stock, garlic, and herbs and bring to a boil.
  9. Add short ribs back in, cover the pot and place into the oven for about 3 hours or until the short ribs are tender.
  10. Take the short ribs out of the pot and strain off the liquid, reserving a thick sauce. (Taste the sauce at this point and see if it needs more salt)
  11. Optional next step: Clean up the short ribs by removing the bones and cartilage part.
  12. Add the short ribs back in the sauce and serve (preferably with mashed potatoes!).


This dish can be made a day ahead. Store the short ribs and sauce in a pot covered and reheat in the oven or on the stovetop.
