Beer Braised Short Ribs

Acorn and ThistleI don’t know about you, but some of my favorite foods aren’t necessarily the best looking ones. This recipe, for instance, is a fantastic example. The gravy is rich and flavorful; the meat is fall-off-the-bones tender … and there’s mashed potatoes! If there’s one food that I absolutely refuse to ever give up, it’s mashed potatoes. For me, they’re the ultimate comfort food.

The problem, if you want to call it that, with this recipe is that it’s kind of boring to look at. It’s just brown and white(ish). I guess you could throw some steamed peas or carrots in to give it a pop of color, but I usually just serve it with a side salad. That did not translate into awesome food photography, though, so you’ll have to trust me on this. It’s super yummy, and really fits the bill when the weather is such that you’re looking for something warm and hearty on a cold winter evening.

Oh, and it’s a slow-cooker meal! So not only is it super tasty, but it takes about 15 minutes of real time, not counting the potatoes, but the majority of it is the hands-off magic of the slow cooker.

Laura, awesome recipe. I did chuckle at a glug of olive oil. I do love ribs and this is such an easy recipe that I'll have to give it a try and post this recipe on my Homestead recipe page on my private blog. Not may recipes are worthy of my recipe page but I expect this one will be great when I fix it. ***** We are having a bit more snow here on the Nebraska west bank of the Missouri river. Two to three more inches predicted. Personally, I'm happy to receive the best nitrogen rich moisture for the soil on the planet. ***** Have a great Pacific Northwest day.
