This is a recipe my personal trainer shared with me a few years back.  I only started experimenting with crockpot cooking a month ago, so I didn't think to try making it until now.  Since the recipe is currently just sitting in my inbox, I wanted to type up a page for it so I could add pics and get it on my Pinterest board.

Ingredients: (I made some alterations based on what I had on hand, which may make it a little less Paleo-appropriate)

  • 2 - 3 lbs. beef short ribs
  • 1 Tbsp. canola oil (original recipe calls for coconut oil)
  • 1 15 oz. can plain tomato sauce
  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 cup golden raisins (original recipe calls for 4 whole dried dates)
  • 6 cloves garlic, smashed

Step 1:

Season short ribs.  Heat oil in large skillet over medium high heat, and brown ribs on both sides (2 - 3 mins per side).  The goal is just to get some nice color on the meat, since it'll get cooked through in the slow cooker.

Step 2:

Place short ribs, tomato sauce, balsamic vinegar, raisins (or dates) and smashed garlic in crock pot.  Cover and cook on low for 4 - 6 hours.

Step 3:

Et voilà!  Dinner is served -- pretty easy, huh?  (I'll admit, it's certainly not the most appetizing-looking dish, sitting in the crockpot like that.  But like Anne Burrell always says, "Brown food tastes good!")  As an added bonus, you can take that pan you browned the ribs in, put it back on the stove and use a little white wine to de-glaze the pan.  Now you have a yummy flavor booster to help you quick sauté some baby spinach/kale -- season with salt, pepper, lemon zest, lemon juice, and some red pepper flakes, and you've got a delicious and very quick side dish!
