Some beef short ribs
Bacon or Pancetta
1 Onion, diced
3 carrots, diced
2 shallots, diced small
2 sprigs thyme
2 sprigs rosemary
2 cups broth
can of tomato paste
balsamic vinegar, ~ 1 cup (Blackberry flavored)
Sprinkle salt and pepper on ribs. Set aside.
Heat oven to 350.
In a dutch oven, on top of stove, cook pancetta or bacon. You're after the fat, not necessarily the bacon, so feel free to snack on the bacon while doing the rest of the cooking!
Add olive oil, sear ribs in grease. Remove ribs.
Add carrots, onions, shallots, cook for a couple minutes. Add broth, scrape bottom of pan to get the little browned bits off.
Add tomato paste, vinegar to just about cover ribs, more salt and pepper, and the rosemary and thyme. Put the lid on and put in the oven for 2 hours. Reduce heat and cook for 30-45 more minutes.
Pull out and let sit for 20 minutes with the lid on before serving.
