Slow Cooker Braised Short Ribs Recipe


What says “Comfort Food” more than, tender short ribs served over creamy polenta? Slow Cooker Short Ribs are very little work, and if using the Nesco or Fagor 3-in 1 cooker (my favorite timesaving appliance), everything, even the browning of the meat, can be done in the slow cooker. Of course these short ribs are fabulous no matter which kind of slow cooker you use, but there is one less pan to scour when it can be done in the same pot. This shortcut recipe uses canned condensed soups, so there is no gravy to thicken; dehydrated onion flakes, and baby carrots are also used, so there are no vegetables to chop.
””
The Polenta can be cooked right along with the short ribs in a separate slow cooker, so everything can be finished at the same time. Crusty Italian bread and a quick prepackaged salad with a favorite bottled dressing can be added for a well-balanced meal.

8 Servings

1 teaspoon olive oil
3 pounds beef short ribs, preferably bone-in if available
Salt and freshly ground pepper

2 cups baby carrots
1/4 cup dehydrated onion flakes
2 sprigs fresh rosemary, or 1 teaspoon dried
1 cup dry red wine
1 envelope dry onion soup mix
2 10 3/4 ounce cans condensed cream of mushroom soup
1 10 3/4 ounce can condensed cream of celery soup

Polenta
  1. If using a 3-in 1 slow cooker, brown the short ribs in the pot; otherwise, brown them in another pan and place them in a 4-6 quart slow cooker.

  2. Sprinkle them with salt and pepper on both sides.

  3. Add the carrots, dry onion flakes, rosemary, and red wine.

  4. Sprinkle the dry onion soup mix evenly over, then spread the soups over all.

  5. Cover and cook 4-6 hours on low, until the meat is tender.

  6. Just before serving, stir well.

  7. Serve over warm polenta.
