I made this recipe last week. There was something very Christmas like in the taste of this sauce that I have been craving ever since we made it. I am officially head over heels in love with this recipe. I have tried a few short rib recipes and for now, this one is The Best E.V.E.R. short rib recipe.
I got it from the Costco mag that we get each month. Ya’ll ready?
Hearty Beef Short Ribs:
Adapted from Costco Connection
2 1/2 lbs boneless or bone in chuck short ribs
1 tbs salt
1 tbs pepper
2 tbs olive oil, divided
2 carrots diced
2 celery stalks diced
1 large yellow onion diced (the person I was cooking for doesn’t like onions so I used onion poweder)
3 garlic cloves or a tbs of minced garlic
3 bay leaves
1/3 cup sherry mixed with a dash of red wine vinegar
1/3 cup crushed tomatoes
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
Season ribs with salt and pepper and olive oil. Brown the ribs on all sides over medium heat.
Once the ribs are brown on all sides, move them to your slow cooker adding your carrots, celery, onion, garlic and bay leaves.
Combine sherry, red wine vinegar, tomatoes, and vinegar in a small bowl. Season your sauce to taste and pour it over your meat in the slow cooker. Cover and cook on low for about 5 hours or until meat is tender. ** It only takes 4 hours on low for these to cook in my crock pot and they were literally falling apart**
Makes 6-8 servings.
I served my ribs with PW’s mashed potatoes. I poured the gravy over the mashed potatoes and ya’ll, it was GOOD!!
I am throwing this in the next rotation. I need to have it again, and soon!
