Add the paprika and tomato paste; cook 1 to 2 minutes, being careful to not burn. Add wine and bay leaf and scrape any browned bits from bottom of the pan. Add stock and short ribs to the pot. Bring to a boil and then reduce to a simmer.
Cook slightly covered (lid should be vented) for 2 1/2 to 3 hours or until the meat is tender and falling from the bone. Add olives to the pot and adjust for salt and pepper.
