Short Rib Pasta Sauce
This is a hearty, rich pasta sauce. It may need a long time to simmer but it’s worth the wait.
Season ribs with salt and pepper and allow them to come to room temperature. Deeply brown the ribs on all sides and remove from pot.
Sweat 1 cup trinity and the garlic. Add the plum tomatoes, beef broth, bay leaves and return beef to pot. Simmer 2 1/2 hours.
Remove beef, remove bones, shred meat and remove any fat. Put the shredded beef back in sauce and simmer for 15 minutes. Serve with your choice of pasta and Parmigiana cheese.
* Trinity – Equal parts chopped carrots, onions and celery – for this recipe it’s 1/3 cup of each. Cook on a low heat until veggies soften.
