  • 1 Cup Red Wine
  • 12 Ounces Tomato Paste
  • 1 Tablespoon Chopped Parsley

  1. Take your short ribs out of the refrigerator about an hour before cooking.  Season your mean with salt and pepper.  

  2. Preheat oven to 330 degrees Fahrenheit.

  8. Lower the heat back to medium.   Stir in the tomato paste.  

  9. Add the parsley. 

  10. Pour in the chicken stock.  

  11. Return the short ribs back into the pot.  

  12. Transfer the short ribs to the oven.  Cover and bake for about 3 hours and 30 minutes.  Uncover after 2 hours into the baking process.
