Pre-heat oven to 160C. Season short ribs and place in a roasting tray with wine, vegetables and beef stock. Cover with tin foil and place in oven for 4 hours or until the meat is falling off the bone.

Put pickled onion ingredients in a jar and cover with vinegar. Refrigerate until ready.

20 minutes before ribs are ready, bring a large pan of salted water to the boil and cook pasta until al dente. Pour into a colander and drain thoroughly.

Meanwhile in a heavy bottomed pan melt butter and add flour stirring into a paste with a wooden spoon. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes or until it turns golden in colour. Slowly whisk pre-warmed milk into butter mixture and cook for 5 – 8 minutes or until the sauce coats the back of the wooden spoon.

Over a low heat add cheese and mustard. Mix until melted, stirring occasionally to stop it sticking. Fold in cooked pasta.

Combine the ingredients for the sour cream and season.

Transfer mac to your serving dish and top with rib meat, pickled onions and a dollop of sour cream.
