Preheat oven to 350. Chop veggies, zest and juice lemons. Flour ribs. In a hot Dutch oven, add olive oil and brown ribs on all 6 sides. Remove to a bowl. When all the ribs are browned, add the onion, carrot and celery and sauté on medium-low heat for about 10 minutes. Add tomato paste and brown for about 2 minutes. Now add all the rest, except for the ribs.
Turn the heat to high, and mix all ingredients well. Put the ribs back into the pot. If they’re not completely covered with broth mixture you can either add more broth, tomatoes or plan to turn the ribs after they cook for 1.5 hrs.
When the pot begins to boil, cover it and put it into the oven for 3 hours. If it goes longer, say 30 min or so, you’ll be fine. After 3 hours, take the pot out of the oven and carefully remove all the ribs to a bowl. Cover with foil while you finish the dish.
Strain out all the broth ingredients into another pan and place it over high heat. Bring it to a rolling boil and allow it to reduce by at least 1/3. You can test it with a spoon to see if it’s reached a gravy-like consistency or not. When it’s ready, pour it over the ribs and pour the extra in a gravy boat.
Serve over potatoes or pasta, think of summer, and keep your house snug!
