5 lbs. beef short ribs
All purpose flour seasoned with salt and pepper for dredging
¼ cup rendered bacon fat
6 small onions (about 1 pound total) unpeeled but chopped
6 carrots, sliced
½ tsp dried rosemary, crumbled
3 cups beef broth

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.   Dredge ribs in flour.  Heat bacon fat in a 6-quart heavy ovenproof kettle over moderately high heat until hot but not smoking and brown short ribs in batches (in a single layer without crowding).  Transfer short ribs as browned to a large plate.

Pour off all but about 2 tablespoons bacon fat remaining in kettle and in it cook garlic, onions, carrots, and rosemary with salt and pepper to taste over moderate heat, stirring, until  browned lightly.  Add broth to vegetable mixture and bring to a boil, stirring.

Return ribs to kettle, squeezing them to fit in a single layer, if possible, and cover kettle with a lid.  Braise ribs in oven until tender, about 2 hours.

Transfer ribs to a platter and keep warm.  Pour cooking liquid through a fine sieve set over a saucepan, discarding solids and skim fat.  If necessary, boil liquid to thicken it slightly and spoon sauce over ribs.
