Cut a 12oz pak of sliced bacon in 1/2 inch strips and fry in a Dutch oven, set the bacon aside and heat the grease to smoking.
Sear 6 boneless beef or moose ribs (3&1/2lbs) in the bacon grease till well browned, place in a flat sheet pan.
Dust the ribs with flour, salt, and pepper and place in a 450 oven for 5 minutes, flip them over and repeat until a thick crust forms.
Sauté 2 sliced onions and 6 carrots in the remaining bacon fat, pour off the grease, add the bacon and ribs back to the Dutch oven.
Add enough (cheap) red wine to cover the meat and vegetables. Add a 1/4 can of tomato paste, a couple of sprigs of fresh thyme, a couple of sage leaves, a bay leaf, some coriander and bring it to a boil, cover and put it in the oven.
Turn the oven down to 300, and resist the urge to mess with it for three hours.
Serve with fresh pasta and a good Cabernet!
