Classic Red Wine-Braised Beef Short Ribs

4 bone-in short ribs, about 10-12 oz each (3 lbs. total)
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1/2 tsp coarse sea salt
1 TBS fresh thyme leaves
1 TBS olive oil
1 onion, peeled and finely chopped
2 carrots, peeled and finely chopped
2 stalks of celery, finely chopped
5 cloves garlic, peeled and finely chopped
2 whole bay leaves

  1. Preheat the oven to 325F.
  2. Pat the short ribs day and sprinkle the pepper, sea salt, and thyme leaves on top of them. Rub the seasoning in to fully coat the short ribs on all sides. Heat the olive oil in a dutch oven or medium heat, then add the short ribs to the pan (do this in batches if they don’t fit in a single layer). Brown the short ribs on all sides, about 2-3 minutes per side, until a nice, caramelized brown crust has formed on the exterior of the ribs. Remove the browned short ribs to a plate.
  3. Drain the rendered fat from the pan, reserving only 1 TBS of fat in the pan. Return the pan to the heat and lower the heat to medium-low. Add the chopped onions, carrots, celery, garlic and bay leaves to the pan. Saute until the vegetables are tender and translucent, about 5-7 minutes.
