Olive Garden's Chianti Braised Short Ribs

    3 lbs. boneless beef short ribs
    Salt to taste
    Pepper to taste
    1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
    1 medium yellow onions, chopped
    4 large garlic cloves, minced
    2 cups Chianti wine
    1 (32 oz.) can crushed tomatoes
    3 cups beef broth
    2 teaspoons fresh rosemary, chopped

  Pat short ribs dry and season with salt and pepper. Coat a
 large, nonstick pan with olive oil. Sear the short rib pieces
 over medium-high heat for about 2-3 minutes on each side or
 until brown. Transfer short ribs to a bowl.

  Add onions to pan and cook over medium heat for approximately
 3 minutes. Once onions are translucent, add garlic and cook for
 1 minute; do not brown. Add Chianti, rosemary, beef broth and
 tomatoes to the pan one at a time, allowing liquid to partially
 evaporate before each addition (about 2 minutes).

  Return short ribs to pan, including any juices that might have
 accumulated in the bowl. Cover and let simmer for 3 hours on low
 heat to complete the braising process. Remove short ribs from pan
 and boil the liquid until it is reduced by half, about 10 minutes.
 Return short ribs to pan and heat thoroughly.
