Shorts ribs are great to make in a crock pot when you have a lot to do that day. Perfect to make, then head out holiday shopping. The gravy is delicious on mashed potatoes or noodles.

Boneless, beef short ribs (i allow 1 ½ per person) for this recipe i made 6 short ribs for 4.
½ cup Flour, seasoned with 1 tsp salt and 1 tsp pepper
1 Tbsp Canola Oil
1 Large Onion, sliced very thin
2 Garlic Cloves, chopped fine
1 cup Red Wine, i used sasquatch merlot (very good to drink with the meal
1 Tbsp Sun Dried Tomato Pesto, or use tomato paste as a sub
2 Sprigs Fresh Thyme, leaves removed form stem or use ½ tsp dried
12 Baby Carrots or 4 Carrots, peeled and cut into chunks
1 cup Mushrooms, cleaned
1 cup Beef Broth


Allow short ribs to come to room temp for about 1/2 hr, then heat oil in a skillet. Dredge each rib in the seasoned flour and place in skillet, Brown on both sides, do in 2 batches, don't crowd the pan or they won't brown.

Set ribs aside. In same skillet, brown the onions and add garlic after 1 minute. Turn heat off, and add the wine. Scrape the browned bits up. Add tomato pesto or paste and mix in, then transfer mixture to the crock pot. Add carrots and mushrooms and pour broth over, then add the ribs on top.

Cook on low for 6 hrs or high for 3 hours. Serve with mashed potatoes or cooked, buttered egg noodles. Pour gravy over or serve separately.
