Easy beer braised short ribs

September 7, 2011

I kept waiting and waiting to post until I had time to create a perfect recipe or get good pictures. That hasn’t really happened =) So, here is the dinner I made last night with cell phone pictures. It was pretty good and very easy to pull together. Look forward to a Mexican Chocolate Pie recipe later this week!

Ingredients:
Kosher Salt
Fresh Ground Pepper
4 beef short ribs
1 can diced tomatoes
1 small onion chopped
4 cloves of garlic roughly chopped
1/2 bottle of beer
Crock pot

Rice:
1 cup of white jasmine rice
1 cup of brown jasmine rice
Rice Cooker

Steps:

Turn crock pot on to low setting

Generously salt and pepper ribs and set into crock pot.
Pour can of diced tomatoes, chopped onions, and 1/2 a bottle of beer over the short ribs.  Cook for 8 hours.
After 8 hours remove the ribs and remove the meat from the bones (most likely it will just fall off).  Shred the beef or cut into small cubes and set aside.
Using a hand blender, blend together the juices, beer, onion and garlic left over in the crock pot to make a sauce.

After the sauce is blended, rinse rice as needed and then add in sauce to rice in rice cooker and cook as normal.

Once rice is finished add in beef and stir into rice.  It’s ready to eat!
Tips:
Want to cook it on the stove? I’d guess you’d throw it all into a cast iron pot and cook it covered at 350 for 2 hours?
Cut the onions and garlic any way you want – as you’ll just be blending it later. I already had rings of onions left over from burgers the day before so that’s what I used.
This is great to make over night. In fact, I realized at 9.45 pm last night I needed to use the short ribs and so I made this up on the fly.
Cook the rice any way you want – I just happen to have a rice cooker. Also, if you don’t like brown rice or jasmine rice use whatever you want.
