These short ribs are pretty fantastic. My husband all but re-proposed. I love him dearly, but I am not into getting married to him again…been there done that. I am getting these little boots I have had my eye on instead.
Here is what you need: 2 pounds of beef short ribs, 1 large onion, 2 carrots (not pictured), 1 turnip, 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon, 2 tablespoons of bacon grease (that is what is in the heart shaped ramekin!), 2 tablespoons of tomato paste, 1 cup of beef broth, 2 cloves of garlic, lots of cranks of pink Himalayan salt, and lots of dashes of pepper.
Here is what you do: Sear the ribs all over in the bacon grease. Smell up the whole house with that bacon grease, then wake up your man and mention those boots. Lie and say you’ll wear them and nothing else whenever he wants.
Dice the onion, peel and dice the carrots and turnip and add to the crockpot.
Put the ribs on top of the veggies. Remind your man about the whole naked with the boots thing again.
Pour the broth into the skillet and add everything else. Stir it all around making sure it is all well mixed. Pour this mixture over the ribs and set the crockpot on low. Cook for 8 hours. Mention the boots and naked thing several times throughout the day.
Yum! This was the perfect Saturday night meal. I threw it all together after teaching yoga in the morning, and it cooked while we hit the soccer field, ran errands, and did our Saturday thing. The meat was crazy tender and fell right off the bone. We had some canned Italian green beans from picking season last year to go along with it. I cannot remember the last time I had turnips, but they tasted just like potatoes. And don’t be put off by the cinnamon…it is wonderful and wintery. Maybe mention those boots again after his first bite.
These nutrition facts may be a little off…I mean you aren’t eating the fat off the bone, just the meat. Anyway, I used myfitnesspal and got:
Serving Size: 2 ribs and 1/2 cup of veggies
Fat: 38g (Even though you don’t eat the fat?)
Boots: 1 pair 🙂
