Easy Crock Pot Short Ribs for 2

Happy Holiday or sorry you’re stuck in work Monday!

My Crock Pot has been getting some serious love. The latest creation…some fall off the bone short ribs.

I hunted for a recipe and ended up going with a variation of this recipe. Mainly because it had the smallest ingredient list AND no flour, corn starch etc. Which a lot of other recipes had. You can feel free to add that stuff if you want it to be a thicker gravy. But I dig the broth, it doesn’t weigh me down (and obviously it’s healthier). Seriously, this was beyond easy. Served with a side of baked sweet potato, it was spectacular.

Ingredients:

  • 2 1 pounds 3-inch-long beef short ribs ( I purchased from Whole Foods on sale)
  • Coarse kosher salt
  • cups dry red wine
  • 1 12 ounce can diced tomatoes in juice
  • 1/2 6-ounce package sliced button mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1 T minced garlic
  • fresh Italian parsley sprigs (or dry Italian seasonings)
  • bay leaves
  • 1 large sweet potato (for the side)

Steps:

  1. Toss some salt and pepper on the meat and place in Crock pot.
  2. Place remaining ingredients in Crock pot.
  3. Cook on low for 8 hours, stir occasionally.
  4. Spoon off oil that settles at top prior to serving. These suckers have a lot of fat..so be sure to  do this throughout.
  5. Bake sweet potato in Microwave and serve it up!
