Short Ribs…what can I say? When done right, it is Heaven on earth.
Braised for hours until fork tender…heck, it’s so tender you can use a spoon, served over egg noodles, polenta, mashed potatoes, or rice, just to name a few. There is really nothing that could go wrong with short ribs cooked perfectly.
This recipe for Whiskey & Brown Sugar Short Ribs, uses a Fall and Winter favorite appliance, the slow cooker.
The only real task in this recipe is first, browning the short ribs in a pan to give it a nice color before popping it in the slow cooker for 7 hours.
