Heat oil in heavy pan, brown ribs on all sides, remove from pan. 3. Saute for 5 minutes: carrots, onion, celery, ginger. 4. Add tomato paste and wine, reduce heat, stir, scraping up any bits stuck to the bottom; reduce liquid by half. 5. Add back ribs and add stock, anise, zest, bay leaves. 6.

Notes

A long slow cook in the oven - perfect for a cozy winter Sunday. If you want to exclude the wine just use more beef stock instead.
