Slow cooked short ribs are just plain perfect when you add in carrots, onions, potatoes and just the right amount of grainy mustard.
Here’s how it goes with me and short ribs: I see them on a menu, along with something else that looks tempting.
I agonize, and then ask the Southern husband if he is thinking about ordering the short ribs. He’s not, but he has been through this one million times before and so he does, and I order the other thing.
Our dinner comes and I have complete buyer’s remorse about not ordering the short ribs, so we swap.
Which is one of the many, many reasons I was so happy to make this easy and delicious short rib recipe at home, because for once, we actually BOTH got to have short ribs.
There are so many fabulous things about this recipe I don’t even know where to start. First of all, you make it in your slow cooker, which means it is incredibly easy and you are guaranteed that the ribs are going to be tender and juicy and perfect.
Second, it gets cooked with a generous amount of this…
Spicy, tangy, grainy mustard. It gives it a perfect little zing. And finally, it gets topped with a garnish of sour cream, more mustard and a handful of chives. It’s a great finishing touch, and will take you about one minute to throw together.
So even though this seems like it should be the result of hours slaving away in the kitchen, the only slaving away is going to be done by your trusty slow cooker. Which means yes, you CAN have this on a Monday night after a long day at work. And you deserve it! You and the Southern husband. :)Print
