    • 4 pounds beef short ribs, trimmed
    • 1 tablespoon olive oil
    • 2 cups sliced onions
    • 4 cloves garlic, minced
    • 1/2 cup chopped flat leaf parsley
    • 1 1/2 cups canned tomatoes with juice
    • 3/4 cup catsup
    • 1/2 cup red wine vinegar (or up to 3/4 cup as desired)
    • 1/4 cup brown sugar
    • - Salt and pepper
    • 4 whole cloves
    • - Cayenne pepper, optional
    • 2 cups beef stock, more or less, enough to cover the ribs


Preheat oven to 350° F.

Heat oil in a Dutch oven or casserole. Sear ribs, 3 or 4 at a time, browning well on all sides. As they are browned, drain them on paper towels. Brown onions and garlic.

Return ribs to the casserole. Sprinkle with the parsley.

In a bowl mix together tomatoes, vinegar, catsup, brown sugar, salt, black pepper, cloves, and cayenne. Pour over meat and then add beef stock just to cover.

Cover casserole, set over medium heat, and bring to a boil. Bake in the oven for 1-1/2 hours. Uncover and bake for 1-1/2 hours longer, or until meat is very tender. Taste, correct seasoning, and serve immediately.
