  • 6 short rib of beef (5 to 7 pounds)
  • 2 sprigs rosemary
  • 6 sprigs thyme
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 stalk celery, halved
  • 3 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 2 teaspoons fresh coarse ground black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 3 medium carrots, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 medium onion, roughly chopped
  • 4 shallots, peeled and sliced 1/4 inch thick
  • 5 garlic cloves, peeled and halved
  • 3 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

  • 4 cups full-bodied wine, such as Cabernet sauvignon
