4.

Place the pieces of short rib into the pot and brown them on all sides. To prevent the fond from burning, place the ribs back down in the exact spot that they were before flipping.

5.

Add the onion and carrots to the pot, then cook until tender and starting to caramelize, about 7-10 minutes.

onion, diced

2 onion, diced

medium carrots, diced

2.5 medium carrots, diced

6.

Deglaze the pot with the white wine, bring the wine to a simmer and cook for 1-2 minutes or until the alcohol burns off.

white wine, dry

1 ½ cup white wine, dry

7.

Add the cola, thyme, parsley, bay leaves, and just enough veal stock to almost cover the beef.

cola

1 cup cola

thyme sprigs

9 thyme sprigs

parsley stem (and leaves)

7 parsley stem (and leaves)

bay leaves

2 bay leaves

veal stock (see recipe above)

3 cup veal stock (see recipe above)

8.

Place the roasting pan into the preheated oven for 3-4 hours. Halfway through roasting, flip the beef pieces. Once there is no resistance after poking with a paring knife then the short ribs are done.

9.

Remove the short ribs from the pot and place them into a sealable container. Refrigerate the short ribs overnight.

10.

Strain the remaining solids out of the braising liquid. Transfer the cooking liquid to a sealable container to refrigerate overnight.

11.

Once chilled, scoop off any solidified fat from the top of the reserved braising liquid.

12.

Transfer the braising liquid to a wide skillet. Bring the liquid to a boil and simmer until a sauce forms, thick enough to coat the back of a spoon, about 1 hour.

13.

Reheat the short ribs in the sauce, then serve with Risotto.
