Preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.
Salt and pepper short ribs and brown on all sides in oil in a heavy bottomed pot (I used a Dutch oven). Remove meat and set aside.
Add onions to pot and scrape up all burny bits. Caramelize onions for approximately 15 minutes.
Add garlic and continue to cook five minutes more.
Add brown sugar and cook five minutes more.
Add pomegranate juice, wine, rosemary, thyme, salt and pepper and bring to a boil.
Add meat back in and bring back to a boil.
Cover pot and place in oven. Bake for three hours.
To serve, garnish with pomegranate seeds.
Sugar substitute? Can i leave out the sugar
It definitely needs some sweetness, but you could cut down on the amount you use, or use a sugar substitute like Splenda. You could also try honey or silan to make it more festive. Hope that helps!
