  1. Preheat the oven to 350° F.
  2. Heat olive oil in 5-quart sauté or casserole pan over high heat.
  3. Lay the short ribs out on a clean work surface and season all sides with salt and pepper.
  4. When oil is almost smoking, add ribs and let sear on high heat, 5 minutes per side or until well browned. Use tongs to rotate the ribs.
  5. Once browned on all sides, remove ribs with tongs and place on a baking tray.
  6. Add onions, carrots, celery, ginger, and garlic to the same pan.
  7. Smash the lemongrass stalk with the back of knife, slice, and add to pan. Sauté vegetables for 2 minutes, or until softened.
  8. Over high heat, add red wine and scrape bottom of pan with wooden spoon as wine comes to a boil.
  9. Add tomato paste, diced tomatoes, brown sugar, parsley, beef stock and sage leaves to pan and bring to a simmer. Add ribs back into pan and cover with a tight-fitting lid.
  10. Place casserole in pre-heated oven for 1.5 hours. Remove cover and continue cooking for an additional 1 hour.
  11. When rib meat is very tender, remove ribs from oven, using tongs to place on baking tray. Cover with aluminum foil to keep warm.
  12. Pour the sauce through a fine-mesh strainer into a saucepan, removing all of the vegetables. Over medium low heat, simmer the sauce for 5 minutes until darker in color and thicker. Add the ribs to reheat.
  13. Serve ribs with sauce over polenta or other side dish of your choice.
