Instructions
Braised Short Ribs
  1. Season short ribs generously with salt. Heat 30 mL (2 tbsp) oil in large Dutch oven set over medium-high heat; cook short ribs for 2 to 3 minutes per side or until browned (do not overcrowd pan; cook in batches, if necessary). Transfer to plate. Drain fat.
  2. Preheat oven to 190°C (375°F). Meanwhile, in food processor, combine onion, celery, carrots and garlic; pulse until mixture forms coarse paste.
  3. Pour remaining oil into pan. Add vegetable mixture; season with salt. Cook for 5 to 7 minutes or until fond has formed on bottom of pan. Add tomato paste; cook, stirring, for about 5 minutes or until deep red color.
  4. Add wine, scraping up browned bits from bottom of pan. Reduce heat; simmer until wine is reduced by half. Return short ribs to pan. Pour in stock; add thyme bundle and bay leaves.
  5. Transfer pan to oven. Cover and bake, adding more water as needed, for about 3 hours or until beef is tender. Uncover during the last 20 minutes of cooking so ribs are browned and sauce is reduced.
  6. Horseradish Mashed Potatoes: Meanwhile, prepare potatoes following package instructions. Stir in butter and horseradish. Serve ribs with mashed potatoes, topped with braising liquid.
