My slow cooker is one of my favorite cooking tools all year long but especially in the spring and summer. And now these short ribs are one of my favorite things to fix in it!
So I am a HUGE fan of short ribs. I love how tender they are while being full of flavor and texture. And don’t even get me started on the gravy that is left after they have been cooking for a while. It really is true perfection.
For this recipe I used the boneless short ribs. Honestly it wasn’t on purpose, but when I picked the package up I just a assumed they had bones and when I got them home I realized they didn’t…lesson learned to pay close attention while shopping at Costco. Next time I will use bone in ribs, as I think they have even more flavor and would do even better on the grill. Either is AMAZING though so use whatever you have on hand!
One of the hardest things about being a food blogger (if there really is a hard part) is when I go out to eat I am constantly trying to figure out how to remake the my dish. This short rib dish was one of those dishes.
The first time I ordered it was at a local restaurant called Dekkers. The short ribs come on top of parmesan polenta with a decadent drizzle that is to die for. It is so good that I refuse to share even with The Hubby.
When I decided to make it at home I knew I wanted to add a little something extra and throw them on the grill right at the end. The Hubby loves to grill and I thought the little bit of smoke and char would finish the dish off perfectly…and OH BOY I was SOOOO right. If you don’t have a grill, or don’t want to heat it up…don’t worry they are still really, really good.
Go ahead and get the slow cooker out…
Make this early Spring something to remember with these decadent short ribs. Take a few minutes to enjoy dinner wth friends and family and remember what it means to enjoy life. Take a note from the recipe and slow down and enjoy all it has to offer….you will be oh so glad.
