  1. Season ribs with salt and pepper. Heat oil in a large Dutch oven or other oven-proof pot over medium high and brown ribs on all sides. Remove from pot and set aside.
  2. Add onion, carrots and celery to pot and cook in drippings, stirring frequently, for 5 minutes. Add flour and tomato paste and stir for another minute.
  3. Pour in red wine and return ribs to pot. Bring to a simmer, turn heat to medium low and cook for 30 minutes.
  4. Preheat oven to 350. Add thyme and garlic and chicken broth to pot and bring to a simmer. Put the covered pot in the oven and cook for 2 1/2 hours until short ribs are tender.
  5. Season to taste with salt and pepper. If you are using the cream, stir it in now.
  6. Ladle ribs and veggies into warmed bowls and drizzle a generous amount of sauce over the top.


This meal is wonderful served as is, but even more wonderful ladled over mashed potatoes or warm polenta or grits!
