Braised Beef Short Ribs

Ingredients: 8 beef short ribs, 2 large carrots, 1 large onion, 6 cloves of garlic, 1 can diced tomatoes, 1 cup beef stock, 1 can tomato sauce, oregano, onion granules, sun dried tomato flakes, red chile powder, salt & pepper.

Season each beef rib generously with salt & pepper. Then in a large sauce pan sear the beef ribs meat side down in about 1 tablespoon of olive oil over medium heat.  Transfer ribs to a plate.

In the same sauce pan add in diced carrot, onion and garlic.  Cook until onion becomes translucent.  Do not burn the garlic.  De-glaze the pan with a little red wine or stock.

In a large slow cooker combine the seasonings, diced tomatoes, beef stock, tomato sauce and the veggies.  Stir to combine.  Add in all the short ribs.

Cook on low for 8 hours.  Serve the short ribs over buttered egg noodles with some roasted veggies on the side.  

Roasted Broccoli: Preheat Oven to 425.  Lay out broccoli in an even layer on a baking sheet.  Drizzle with olive oil and season liberally with salt, pepper and any other seasoning of your choice.   Roasted broccoli is also great with the addition of a little lemon zest and chile flakes.
