    • Arrange short ribs on top of vegetables.
    • Slide Chef’s Pan, uncovered, into top shelf.
    • Press green button to begin cooking.
    • Note: You will add additional ingredients after 10 minutes.

  2. step

    Prepare chicken stock mixture

    • While food cooks, in medium bowl, whisk together chicken stock, red wine, flour, tomato paste, 1 tablespoon salt and 1 tablespoon pepper until tomato paste is fully incorporated and there are no lumps.

  4. step

    Finish & serve

    • Carefully remove Chef’s Pan from Brava and check ribs. Meat should easily pull from bones when pierced with a fork. If they are not yet tender, bake at 325°F for 30 minutes more.
    • Arrange short ribs on serving platter or individual plates.
    • If desired, use large spoon to skim fat off sauce. Add red wine vinegar to sauce; stir well.
    • Top ribs with sauce. Serve with roasted potatoes or polenta, if desired.
