I’m not sure if there is a breathing being on earth who doesn’t love a Crock Pot. So easy, so delicious. Throw a bunch of crap in the pot, doesn’t really matter what. I am pretty positive that nothing less than mouth-watering could come out of one. Especially when it involves BEER. Can I get an amen?
So yeah, that’s kind of what I did here.
Crock-Pot Short Ribs w/Beer
1 – 1.5 lbs of short ribs
A few shallots, sliced
A few stalks of celery, cut up into 2-3-inch pieces
3 cloves of garlic
Large bottle of a brown ale (I used Samuel Smith’s Nut Brown Ale) *
Chicken stock – about a cup
A sprinkling of salt & pepper
Throw everything in the crock pot! (Don’t you love that?). Only add enough water to barely cover the meat. I actually used no water, just added some extra chicken stock. Cook on low for 6 hours. Come home from work, make sure you have a towel nearby to wipe up the drool. These guys are SO good, totally soaked in the beer and it tastes amazing.
*Note: If you can’t find a large bottle, use a few small bottles. Remember, the better the beer, the better these will taste – so don’t skimp! 🙂
If you want to make a side, make these yummy Sweet Potato Latkes.
The latkes were good, but a little too greasy for me. Heck, they’d probably be too greasy for anyone. But they tasted DELICIOUS. Next time I will try and bake them.
