Preparation

Baking Directions:

To make short ribs: Preheat oven to 300° F.

Season short ribs with salt and pepper.

Sear all sides of ribs in heavy-bottomed pot with lid, then add onions, carrots, celery, tomato paste and a drizzle of olive oil.

Add red wine, beef stock, garlic, all spices and herbs.

Cover with lid, place in oven and cook at 300° for approximately 1 1/2 to 2 hours.

Ribs are done when they are fork tender; allow ribs to cool in stock.

Remove short ribs from pot, trim away from bone and cartilage.

Shred short ribs and set aside in stock.

To prepare mushrooms and onions: In a large sauté pan over medium-high heat, sauté sliced onions and cremini mushrooms until soft and caramelized; set aside (will be added to short ribs and jus when assembling sandwich).

To assemble sandwich: Mix mayonnaise and grated Parmesan cheese together.

Spread mayonnaise on toasted Muffaletta.

Lay out short ribs on bread, add the mushrooms and onions.

Top with fontina and provolone, and sprinkle with crumbled gorgonzola cheese.

Place sandwich under broiler for a few minutes until cheese melts.

Place top on sandwich, cut into 6 to 8 pieces and serve.
