Ello, this is one I have made often, it was posted in the Toronto Star a few years ago by a local Chef (I can't remember his name).

4 lbs beef short ribs
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
4 Tbsp olive oil
3 heads of garlic
2 carrots, coarsely chopped
1 large onion , coarsely chopped
2 Tbsp tomato paste
3/4 cup dry red wine
2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
2 Tbsp canned chipotle peppers, or to taste
1/4 cup each, molasses, soya sauce
4 cups beef or chicken stock or water

Preheat oven to 350F.

Trim fat from ribs. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
In large skillet, heat 2 Tbsp of oil over medium high heat. Add ribs in single layer without crowding. Brown on both sides, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer to large baking dish in single layer.
Peel 1 head of garlic, chop cloves coarsely.
Add 1 Tbsp oil to same skillet over medium heat, add carrots, onions, and chopped garlic. Cook, stirring, until softened. 3-4 minutes. Stir in tomato paste. Add wine, scraping up browned bits from skillet. Add vinegar, chipotle peppers, molasses, soya sauce, and stock or water. Bring to boil. Pour mixture over ribs in baking dish: they should be just covered. Cover tightly with foil or lid. Bake in oven about 2 1/2 hours, or until tender.
Meanwhile, cut enough off tops of remaining two heads of garlic to expose cloves. Place upright in small baking dish. Drizzle with remaining 1 Tbsp oil. Place in oven, roast about 45 minutes or until soft. ( I do them in foil) When cool, squeeze out garlic, discarding skin.
Transfer ribs to serving dish using slotted spoon. Keep warm. Pour cooking liquid into large skillet, skim fat from surface. Boil rapidly over high heat about 5-10 minutes or until slightly thickened. Stir in roasted garlic. Pour sauce over ribs.
Serves 4-6.

Practice safe lunch. Use a condiment.
