pounds to 4 pounds beef short rib, cut into serving-sized pieces
tablespoons Creole seasoning
tablespoons vegetable oil
large onion, coarsely chopped (about 2 cups)
large carrot, coarsely chopped (about 1 1/2 cups)
stalks celery, coarsely chopped (about 1 1/2 cups)
cloves garlic, minced
sprigs fresh thyme leaves
can (about 6 ounces) tomato paste
bottle (12 fluid ounces) dark beer
cups Swanson® Beef Broth or Swanson® Beef Stock
cups Swanson® Vegetable Broth(Regular or Certified Organic)
Season the ribs with the Creole seasoning. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a 6-quart saucepot over medium-high heat. Add the ribs in 2 batches and cook until they’re well browned on all sides. Remove the ribs from the saucepot. Pour off any fat.
Reduce the heat to medium and add the remaining oil. Add the onions and carrots and cook until the vegetables are well browned, stirring occasionally. Add the celery, garlic and thyme and cook until the celery is tender.
Stir the tomato paste and beer in the saucepot. Cook and stir for 5 minutes, scraping up the browned bits from the bottom of the saucepot. Stir in the beef broth and vegetable broth and heat to a boil. Return the ribs to the saucepot and reduce the heat to low.
Cover and cook for 2 hours or until the ribs are fork-tender. Remove the ribs from the saucepot and keep them warm.
Strain the cooking liquid and return it to the pot. Cook over medium-high heat for 20 minutes or until the cooking liquid is slightly thickened. Serve the ribs with the sauce.
