Pomì Tomato Sauce 6 cups

  • Beef short ribs 8 to 10 (about 5 lbs.)
  • Chopped toasted pine nuts ½ cup
  • Cinnamon ½ tsp.
  • Dry red wine 1 cup
  • Finely chopped carrot ¾ cup
  • Finely chopped celery ¾ cup
  • Finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley 2 tbs.
  • Finely chopped garlic 2 tbs.
  • Finely chopped onion ¾ cup
  • Freshly ground black pepper To taste
  • Ground cloves 1/8 tsp.
  • Kosher salt To taste
  • Lemon zest 1 tsp.
  • Nutmeg ½ tsp.
  • Olive oil 1/4 cup


Place a rack in the center of the oven and heat the oven to 325°F.

Generously season the ribs with salt and pepper. In a 7- to 8-quart Dutch oven or heavy-duty pot, heat 2 Tbs. olive oil over medium-high heat. Sear half of the ribs, without crowding them, on the three meaty sides, about 2 minutes per side, then transfer to a glass plate or large bowl. Add 2 Tbs. oil to the pan, and repeat with the remaining ribs. 

Add the onion, celery and carrots and sauté until the vegetables are just tender, stirring constantly about 2 minutes. Add the garlic, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves. Cook for another 15 seconds, until the spices are aromatic, add the wine to deglaze, then add the tomatoes and bring to a boil.

Return the ribs to the pot, place a crinkled piece of parchment on the surface of the ribs and sauce, cover with the lid, and place in the oven for 4 to 4½ hours, until the ribs are tender and just beginning to fall off the bone. Remove the ribs and keep warm. Remove any excess oil from the surface. Bring the sauce to a boil. 

In a small bowl, combine the pine nuts, parsley, and lemon zest. Serve the ribs with some of the sauce and top with some of the pine nut mixture.
