4 to 5 pounds of beef short ribs
2 gloves garlic, crushed
1/3 cup peeled fresh ginger chunks
2 cups red wine
2 cups water or chicken stock
3/4 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup dry white wine
Lightly salt and pepper the ribs. Add a small amount of canola oil to large pot and turn burner on high. Sear the ribs on all sides. Remove ribs and set them aside.
Add a little more oil to the pot, reduce the heat to medium high and saute the garlic and ginger. Add the red wine and let simmer until the liquid is reduced by half.
Add the water or chicken stock, soy sauce, brown sugar or white wine. Bring to a boil.
Return the ribs to the pot. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 2-1/2 hours or until the meat is beginning to fall off the bone.
Strain the sauce. Skim off excess fat and serve sauce with ribs.
