6 tbsp olive or coconut oil, divided
4 tsp Dijon mustard
4 tsp cider vinegar
4 tsp dried basil
4 tsp dried thyme
1 tbsp dried rosemary, crushed
1/4 tsp black pepper
6 to 8 (1 1/2 lbs) beef short ribs
1 can (8-oz) tomato sauce
In a small bowl, combine water, 2 tablespoons of the oil, mustard, vinegar and seasonings; mix together well. Set aside half of this marinade.
Place ribs in a large resealable plastic bag. Pour the remaining half of the marinade over the ribs, seal bag tightly and turn to coat ribs. Refrigerate for several hours.
Drain and discard the marinade from ribs
Heat the remaining 4 tablespoons of oil in a skillet and add the ribs; cook until browned. Transfer ribs to a 1-quart baking dish that has been sprayed with olive oil cooking spray.
Combine the reserved marinade with the tomato sauce; pour over the ribs. Cover and bake at 350 degrees for 1 1/2 hours or until ribs are tender.
