Crockpot Love: Short Ribs n Beer

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

Ingredients:
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
Water
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.
