Preheat oven to 325°. Sprinkle ribs with 1/2 teaspoon pepper and salt. In an ovenproof Dutch oven, brown ribs in oil in batches. Remove and set aside.
In the drippings, saute the celery, carrots, onion, red pepper and garlic until tender. Add wine, stirring to loosen browned bits from pan. Bring to a boil; cook until liquid is reduced by half.
Return ribs to the pan. Add broth and remaining pepper; bring to a boil. Place rosemary, oregano and bay leaf on a double thickness of cheesecloth; bring up corners of cloth and tie with kitchen string to form a bag. Add to Dutch oven.
Cover and bake 1-1/2 to 2 hours or until meat is tender. Remove ribs and keep warm. Discard herb bag. Skim fat from pan juices; thicken if desired. Yield: 8 servings.
