This recipe is loaded with the flavor of autumn, with gorgeous fall vegetables mixed with the rich flavor of Black Angus short ribs. It’s the perfect canvas of everything in season this winter.


Ingredients

  • 2 lb Creekstone Farms Beef short ribs, cut to 8 oz each.
  • 1 Carrot, diced
  • 1 Onion, diced
  • 1 Celery, diced
  • 1 Bay leaf
  • 1 Sprig of thyme
  • 4 cup Red wine
  • 4 cup Veal or chicken stock

Instructions

Cut the short ribs in equal size pieces.  Dice the vegetables and add to a container with the wine, bay leaf and thyme.

Let marinate overnight.

The next day, take meat out of wine, let drain, strain off vegetables and reserve.  Also reserve the wine.

In a heavy bottom sauté pan, with canola oil, brown the short ribs evenly on both sides. Take out of sauté pan and season with salt and pepper.

In another deep sided sauce pan, brown the drained vegetables in butter until nice and caramelized.
