Braise Short Ribs:
Preheat your oven to 325 degrees F. Salt and pepper the short ribs. Set Aside.
Add ¾ cup vegetable oil to a 5qt Dutch oven. On medium to high heat, brown the ribs on all sides. Remove the ribs and set aside.
Lower the heat to medium. Add the carrot, celery, parsley stems and ½ the onion to the pan and cook until they begin to caramelize. Deglaze with the red wine and scrape the bottom of the pan to release all the flavorful bits. Reduce liquid by half. Add the broth and bring to a boil. Add the ribs to the liquid; they should be almost completely submerged. Put on a lid and transfer to the oven. Cook until the ribs are fork-tender. When the ribs are finished cooking, remove them from the liquid and use two forks to shred them. Set shredded ribs aside.

Season potatoes with salt, pepper and 1 tbsp. of vegetable oil. Roast potatoes at 350 degrees until crispy on the outside but tender on the inside. In a sauté pan add remaining vegetable oil and cook julienne peppers and onions until soft and translucent. Add potatoes into the pan, season with salt, pepper and I tsp of chopped parsley.
Coarsely chop the remaining parsley, combine with cilantro, basil, red pepper flakes, the zest of 1 lemon, the juice of ½ lemon, tomatoes, and olive oil. Salt and pepper to taste.
Place hash on your favorite plate, top with shredded short ribs, shaved parmesan cheese and chimichurri. If you really want to take it up a notch, add two eggs over easy.
