Short ribs, aromatic vegetables and herbs braise in wine-infused stock until the meat nearly falls off the bone, and is served with a smashing combination of mixed fall vegetables.

     cups  Swanson® Beef Stock
     cup  dry red wine
     cups  Swanson® Vegetable Broth (Regular or Certified Organic) or Swanson® Chicken Stock
       small butternut squash (about 1 1/2 pounds), peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces (about 4 cups)
       medium sweet potato, diced (about 2 cups)

Coat the ribs with the flour.
Heat the oil in an 8-quart saucepot over medium-high heat. Add the ribs in 2 batches and cook until they're well browned on all sides. Remove the ribs from the saucepot.
Add the onions to the saucepot and cook for 5 minutes. Stir in the carrots, celery, chopped garlic and rosemary and cook for 3 minutes. Stir in the beef stock and wine. Return the ribs to the saucepot and heat to a boil. Reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook for 1 hour or until the ribs are fork-tender.
Heat the vegetable broth, squash, sweet potato, turnips, parsnips, onion and garlic cloves in a 4-quart saucepan over high heat to a boil. Reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook for 20 minutes or until the vegetables are tender. Drain the vegetables well in a colander, reserving the cooking liquid.
Mash the vegetables with 1/2 cup cooking liquid. Add additional cooking liquid, if needed, until the vegetables are the desired consistency. Serve the vegetables with the ribs.
