Season short ribs on all sides with salt & pepper. Heat a large skillet over high heat. Add the olive oil and the short ribs. Brown on all sides until golden brown, about 1-2 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate. Pour off all but 2 tablespoons of the drippings. Add onions, carrots and celery and sauté until translucent and soft, about 6-8 minutes.
Add flour and tomato paste and stir to combine. Sauté until the vegetables are a deep red color, about 5 minutes longer. Stir in the wine and bring to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer until reduced by half, about 6-8 minutes. Add the Raspberry Chipotle spice rub and garlic granules, stirring to combine. Add short ribs and beef stock. Add to an ovenproof baking dish and cover tightly with aluminum foil. Bake 2 1/2 hours, until the ribs are tender. Serve over mashed potatoes, drizzling with the pan sauce. Serve immediately.
