Step 1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a large saucepan, add Zinfandel. Bring to a boil, lower heat, and simmer until reduce by 1/2.

Step 3

Heat olive oil in a large heavy-bottom saute or roasting pan. Season beef short ribs generously with salt and pepper. Brown beef well on all sides, remove, and set aside. Remove all but 1 tablespoon of oil. Add vegetables, garlic, and thyme cook until lightly browned. Add beef short ribs back to the pan, add reduced wine and cover with chicken stock.
