 Ingredients List

  • 4 sl Bacon, chopped
  • 1/3 c All-purpose flour
  • 1/2 ts Salt
  • 1/4 ts Pepper
  • 1/4 ts Paprika
  • 2 lb Beef short ribs
  • 2 Onions, finely chopped
  • 3 Carrots, finely chopped
  • 3 Garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 1/2 c Red wine
  • 1 1/2 c Beef stock
  • 1 ts Dried thyme
  • 1 Bay leaf


4 Potatoes
4 Carrots, thickly sliced
1/2 lb Small mushrooms
1/4 c Fresh parsley, chopped

In Dutch oven, cook bacon over medium heat; remove bacon and set aside.

In plastic bag, combine flour, salt, pepper and paprika; add ribs and shake
to coat, reserving flour mixture.

Add ribs to pan; brown well, in batches [note] , over medium-high heat.
Remove ribs and set aside; drain fat from pan. Add onions, carrots, garlic
and reserved flour mixture to pan; reduce heat to medium. Cover and cook
(adding up to 2 tb water if mixture gets too dry) for about 6 minutes or
until onions are softened. Gradually stir in wine, stock, thyme and bay
leaf, scraping up brown bits [deglaze] from bottom. Bring to boil; reduce
heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Return ribs and bacon to pan; simmer,
covered, for 1 hour.

Vegetables: Meanwhile, peel potatoes and cut into bite-size chunks. Add
potatoes and carrots to pan; cook for 1 hour. Stir in mushrooms; cook for
30 minutes or until ribs are tender. Stir in parsley. Discard bay leaf.
Season with salt and pepper to taste.

[Note: browning meat in batches prevents meat from steaming, which happens
if meat is crowded in the pan.]

Serve in big soup bowls with French bread and a green salad.
