Slow Cooker Short Ribs
I must admit, I LOVE read meat. Given the choice between a nice steak and some chicken breast I am going to pick the steak every single time. Steak is my #1 choice but short ribs are easily my close second choice.
Recently on a date night dinner with my husband I ordered some delicious short ribs at the Gala Steakhouse & Bistro in Williamstown MA.
Ever since that dinner I have been simply craving some short ribs. So, with my slow cooker standing by I decided to see if I could create a short rib recipe that would satisfy that craving.
This short rib recipe is pretty simple and really can’t compare to those delicious ribs I had at the recipe. But my recipe still came out with some amazing flavor and looked nice too. The perfect dish to serve my family for a nice Sunday dinner.
I served the short ribs over mashed yellow potatoes with some lovely steamed broccoli on the side. It really was a great meal and I plan on making these short ribs over and over again!

VERY yummy! Did not do the brown sugar stuff, just left everything in the crock pot until we ate it. So tender & juicy. 5 stars from all 4 of us in the house!!!
Delicious, did not use sugar, but added some Port wine for sweetness. I also browned my ribs in the oven before transferring to the crock pot. Will definitely make this again!
