Beer Braised Short Ribs Recipe

3 to 3 1/2 lbs. Short Ribs
2-3 onions, cut into wedges
1 12 oz. Bottle of light beer (Sam Adams Light worked well)
2 tbs. Dijon mustard
2 tbs Brown sugar
2 tbs Tomato paste
1 tsp Dried thyme
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cracked black pepper
1 Bay leaf
3 tbs All purpose flour
1/2 cup cold water

Add onion wedges to the bottom of your slow cooker. Place ribs evenly on top of the onions. In a separate bowl mix together the beer, mustard, brown sugar, tomato paste, thyme, salt and pepper. Stir to combine and pour over ribs. Place bay leaf in the cooker. Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours or until bones release effortlessly from the short ribs.

Once the meat has been fully cooked remove from the pot with the onions. Remove bay leaf and discard. Use a spoon to skim out the fat at the top of the pot. In a separate bowl whisk together flour and water. Turn the slow cooker on to high once all the fat at the top has been removed. Mix in the flour and water and cook until thickened. Serve gravy with short ribs and onions.

About annsley423

I work in Boston at an online retail company called Wayfair.com. I work within the Order Processing department, trying to stop fraudulent orders among other tasks. My company has a large catalogue of kitchen items, which has been both helpful (to my cooking) and detrimental (to my wallet). I am a self taught cook, learning mostly from watching cooking shows and doing trial and error within my own kitchen. I am making this blog as a way to share ideas and successes, as well as curb boredom in my small apartment. In my spare time besides cooking, I like to read, take pictures and have fun with my friends. I am also trying to learn more about wine and hopefully that will eventually be incorporated within the blog as well.
