Add flour and tomato paste; cook, stirring constantly, until well combined and deep red, about 2-3 minutes. Stir in wine, then add short ribs with any accumulated juices. Bring to a boil; lower heat to medium and simmer until wine is reduced by half, about 25 minutes. Add all herbs to the pot along with garlic. Stir in stock. Bring to a boil, cover, and transfer to the oven.
  3. Cook until short ribs are tender, about 2–2½ hours. Transfer short ribs to a platter. Strain sauce from the pot into a measuring cup. Spoon fat from surface of sauce and discard; season sauce to taste with salt and pepper.
