dreamy short ribs

Check out this rich looking sauce to go with the ribs!

I made these last night and OMG!!!

1 lb short ribs bone in
1/2 cup flour
1/4-1/2 can of tomato paste (large can of paste)
olive oil
2 tbsp chopped garlic
1 zucchini cut into 1/2 inch rounds (can use 2 if you want more veg)
1 carrots cut into 1/4 inch rounds
1 onion julienned
15-20 springs of fresh thyme
1/2 cup Merlot or other red wine you like to drink
1 box of beef stock

Pour 2 turns of the pan of olive oil
Add chopped garlic
add onions, zucchini and carrots
add 5 sprigs thyme
saute tender CRISP
Set aside in a bowl

Pour 3 turns of the pan of olive oil
salt and pepper flour AND ribs
dip ribs in flour on all sides
place meat side down in pan when oil is hot
brown all sides then set aside

Add Wine
add tomato paste
whisk together scraping meat bits from pan
add 5 sprigs of thyme
Add Beef stock
whisk together
add 5 sprigs of thyme
Put ribs back into pan meat side down
I also added thyme on top of the ribs but that is up to you if you like thyme or not)
Cover and put on Low/simmer for 2 hours

After an hour and a half check liquid level, if it is too low add more stock to cover ribs 3/4 way. Cover and cook another 30-45 mins until meat is tender.

Add veg in at last 10 mins You want them to still be tender crisp at serving

I served over mashed potatoes and made sure I put some of the decadent sauce over them.
