  1. 1

    Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a medium sauce pan, heat olive oil until smoking. Add seasoned beef and sear until golden brown, flip and repeat.

  2. 2

    In a roasting pan, make a bed of the vegetables in the bottom of the pan and place the short ribs on top of vegetables. Pour the beef stock and wine over the mix and add the shallots, garlic, bay leaf, thyme, parsley and peppercorns; wrap tightly with foil. Place in oven and cook for three to four hours or until tenderness is achieved.
