Beer Braised Short Ribs

May 28, 2013

This is a perfect Sunday dinner dish and go really well with mashed potatoes and fresh veggies. It’s a little different than a more traditional roast, and it is a great way to use up a straggler beer from your fridge. Even better, you get to toss everything in a slow cooker and come back after an outdoor adventure!

20130505 Braised Short Ribs

You will need:

  • 4-5 lbs short ribs
  • 2 T steak seasoning
  • 3 medium onions, cut in half and thinly sliced
  • 4 ribs celery, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 12 oz (1 bottle) chili sauce
  • 12 oz (1 bottle) favorite beer — but not a dark one
  • 1/2 c water
  • 1 package dried onion soup mix
  • 1 t salt
  • 1 t black pepper

Then you will…

  1. Season the short ribs with the steak seasoning. Brown on all sides over high heat in a nonstick skillet.
  2. Place the short ribs in the slow cooker.
  3. Top with onion and celery.
  4. In a medium bowl, mix together the garlic, chili sauce, beer, water, onion soup mix, salt and pepper.
  5. Pour over the contents of the slow cooker.
  6. Cover and cook on low for 5 hours.
  7. Remove the short ribs from the cooker. Get rid of the bones and shred the meat.
  8. Return the rib meat to the cooker and discard the bones.
  9. Allow to cook on low for another hour or two.
  10. Skim off excess fat from the sauce before serving.
