10 cloves garlic, minced

6 carrots, diced 

6 stalks celery, diced 

2 onions, diced 

Two 15-ounce cans crushed tomatoes 

Two 6-ounce cans tomato paste 

32 ounces beef stock 

2 cups red wine 

1 cup all-purpose flour 

2 teaspoons garlic powder

2 teaspoons ground black pepper

8 bone-in beef short ribs (about 7 pounds) 

1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil 


Special equipment:
One 20-by-12-by-3-inch disposable pan with lid
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, add the garlic, carrots, celery, onions, tomatoes, tomato paste, stock and red wine. Stir to combine, then set aside.
  3. In a large bowl or baking dish, mix the flour, garlic powder and black pepper. Dredge each short rib in the seasoned flour until evenly coated on both sides, shaking off the excess.
  4. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the olive oil, and when it begins to shimmer, add the short ribs and cook until golden brown on both sides, 6 to 8 minutes per side. Continue with remaining short ribs until all are browned. Lay the short ribs down on the bottom of the pan.
  5. Pour the tomato and red wine mixture over the short ribs. Cover the pan with a lid and bake until fork tender, 2 to 2 hours 30 minutes.
