  1. Season ribs with salt and pepper.
  2. Add oil to hot Dutch oven. Arrange short ribs in one layer in Dutch oven, leaving room
    between each and sear for several minutes on each side, allowing them to brown. Work
    in batches if necessary.
  3. Add onion and garlic around the short ribs, cook until onion is soft, about 5 minutes.

    removing lid.
