Yield: 4 - 6
Prep Time: 12 Minutes
Cook Time: 120 Minutes


• 8 Beef Short Ribs (bone-in, about 5 lbs.)
• 2 Tbs. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
• 1 lb. peeled Pearl Onions
• 1 Tbs. Tomato Paste
• 7 cloves finely chopped Garlic
• 1 Bay Leaf
• 3 sprigs Rosemary (tied in bundle)
• 5 Carrots (cut into 2-inch chunks)
• 1.5 lbs. Baby Yukon Gold Potatoes (halved)
• 2 Tbs. Flour
• 1 cup Dry Red Wine
• 3 cups Beef Stock
• 1 cup Parsley


Preheat the oven to 300 degrees.

Season the Short Ribs with Salt and Pepper. Heat a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add Olive Oil and sear the meat deeply on all sides, about 5 minutes per side. Remove to a plate.

Add the Pearl Onions and Carrots to the remaining hot oil and cook for 3 minutes. Add the Tomato Paste and cook until it begins to turn a rusty color, about 3 minutes.

Using kitchen twine, tie together a few Parsley Stems, Bay Leaf, and Rosemary. Add to the pot with Garlic. Next, add the Flour and stir with a wooden spoon to lightly coat the vegetables. Add the Wine to the pan, scraping the brown bits off the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon. Add the Potatoes and browned Meat back into the pan and add Stock.

Cover and transfer to oven and cook for 2-3 hours, until the Short Ribs are tender. Garnish with Chopped Parsley and serve.
