Slow Cooker Short Ribs

One of the many benefits of buying a 1/2 cow is that you get cuts that you wouldn't normally buy. Although they sound really yummy, I probably wouldn't have bought short ribs from the store. But since they were in my freezer, Hubby decided to cook them up the other day in the slow cooker. We searched through several online recipe sites to find a nice combo of spices to use then threw them in the crock pot to cook slowly all day. The result was very much like a fatty pot roast that falls off of the bones. Yum!

Slow Cooker Short Ribs
About 4 lbs of grass fed beef sort ribs
1 C beef stock
1 Tbs minced garlic
1 Tbs paprika
1 Tbs Chinese Five Spice
1 t chili powder
1 onion
4 carrots
salt and pepper to taste

Brown the short ribs under the broiler in the oven for 5 minutes per side. Coarsely chop the onion and carrots and put in the bottom of the slow cooker. Place browned ribs in slow cooker on top of the vegetables then add spices and stock. Cook on high for 5-6 hours or low for 8-10.
