When you’ve worked up an appetite that goes beyond mere hunger, this is the kind of slow-cooked, melt-in-your-mouth, seriously succulent meat you want waiting for you at the end of your fork.
Steaks are good, burgers are fine – but these crock pot flavor-infused short ribs take beef to a whole new level of deliciousness.
And what’s the best part? They’re ridiculously easy. No kidding.
First you season them, then you sear them alongside onions and garlic. Just let those natural sugars caramelize and brown the meat. Then you put them in the crock pot and step away…your slow cooker will take it from there.
Set ’em on low and let them go for hours…heat and time are the secret ingredients to this mouth-watering magic act.
And just when the hearty aroma of these beefy beauties have your tummy growling uncontrollably with anticipation, your short ribs will finally be ready.
Fall off the bone beef that’s so juicy and tender you can cut it with a fork.
And don’t be afraid of the ancho and chipotles in this recipe – the resulting flavor of those peppers are actually very subtle…much more smokey and sweet than spicy. But if you’re still in doubt, feel free to leave them out.
Don’t have bone-in short ribs or they’re too pricey? Not a problem. Sub out with chunks of chuck or pot roast. You’ll have an exquisite slow-cooked beef dish that’s a bit leaner, but every bit as juicy and tender.
You can serve this one over cauliflower rice, in a salad, over mashed potatoes, or have some fun and bake up some sweet potato wedges and ladle all that juicy meaty goodness over.
Hope you enjoy this awesome and easy paleo epicurean meal…and as always, let me know what you think!
