  1. Cover short ribs with water in dutch oven or heavy-duty saucepot. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer covered 3 hours and 30 minutes or until short ribs are tender, adding water as needed to keep ribs covered with water. Remove short ribs and keep warm.
  2. Process horseradish with vegetable oil in food processor to make a paste. Strain horseradish, using strainer lined with cheesecloth or paper towels, reserving oil. Process reserved oil with 3 tablespoons (adding more if necessary )cornstarch in blender until powdery.
  3. Bring red wine and beef stock to a boil in small saucepan. Cook over medium-high heat until reduced to thin gravy; set aside.
  4. Bring carrots, chicken stock and heavy cream to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer until carrots are tender, about 20 minutes. Drain, reserving liquid. Process warm carrots in blender until smooth, adding reserved liquid as needed to create a puree. Stir in Maille Mustards to taste; set aside.
  5. Boil cabbage in lightly salted water until tender, about 4 minutes. Drain and keep warm.
