Beef Short Ribs Slow Cooked - The Foodie Affair

These meaty short ribs are perfect to serve this fall. They’re filling, satisfying, and will make your bellies nice and warm. I had to carefully place the meat on the plate to take a photo. It literally falls off the bone as you try to remove a piece from the crockpot.

I don’t have a lot to say about this dish, except that after cooking lots of chicken and turkey, my guys were very happy that I cooked some hearty lip smacking beef!

Instead of cooking the meat in the oven, like the original recipe does, I wanted to put Mr. Crockpot to work!

He does such a great job 🙂

Serve with a baked potato or Mock Mashed Potatoes. A side of fresh green beans would be nice too.

If you didn’t finish off the bottle of wine waiting for this deliciousness to cook up, then enjoy a glass with your meal.
