Red Wine braised Beef short ribs

Red Wine braised Beef short ribs

2 lb. Beef Short ribs bone in
1 bottle of red wine
1 large sweet onion-chopped
3 large carrots-chopped
3 stalks celery plus some leaves
2 tab chopped garlic

Season short ribs with salt and pepper. 
Brown short ribs in some olive oil in a enamel cast iron pot or dutch oven. 
(I used my Le Creuset Doufeu)
Reserve meat on a plate and lightly saute the chopped veggies for about 2 to 3 minutes. 
Add meat back in the pot and pour in a half of a bottle of red wind. Cover and braise (cook on low) beef for 3 hours, checking occasionally that there is enough liquid to keep meat moist. There always is when I  use the Doufeu. 
I put ice on the lid and the condensation drips down on to the meat and keeps everything moist. 
Serves 4 
I serve them with garlic mashed potatoes.
