Hawaiian salt and fresh cracked pepper, to taste
• 1 cup diced onion

• 1 cup diced celery
• 5 ounces tomato paste
• 2 cup red wine
• 2 bulbs garlic, peeled and smashed

Sun Noodle udon

For Seasoned Flour:

• 1 cup all-purpose flour
• 1 tablespoon salt
• 1 tablespoon ground black pepper
• 2 tablespoons minced fresh thyme
• 1 tablespoon minced fresh rosemary

Season short ribs with Hawaiian salt and fresh cracked pepper. Dust short ribs with seasoned flour mixture. In a pot, heat salad oil and sear short ribs on all four sides, 1 minute per side. Remove short ribs and discard oil from the pot. Add onions, celery and carrots. Cook until slightly caramelized. Add tomato paste and cook for approximately 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until skin forms on the bottom of the pot. Deglaze with red wine and cook for another minute. Add chicken stock, rosemary, thyme, garlic, peppercorns and sugar. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to simmer. Add ribs back to the pot and cook for approximately 1 hour and 45 minutes or until fork tender.
