I love cooking in my crock pot and today’s recipe adds another one to the list of crock pot recipes that I have shared with you. Today I feature another tasty beef short rib recipe that is rich and flavorful! Let’s stop for a preview.
For this easy recipe, plan on a half hour of prep time and 10 hours of cooking. This recipe serves 8. Are you ready to head into the kitchen? Let’s go!
2 packages of short ribs, there will be 7-8 ribs
1 tsp kosher salt
3/4 tsp fresh cracked pepper
3 small leeks, greens trimmed off and discarded
5 large cloves of garlic
1 1/4″ slice of fresh garlic, skin peeled off
1 star anise
2 chile de arbol
even mix of sherry and brandy, poured to 1/3 cup total
2 oranges, juiced, and skins cut into strips
1/4 cup of light brown sugar, packed tight
4 oranges to serve with the dish
Rub the ribs with the salt and pepper.
Pre-cook them under the broiler until brown on all sides. While these are browning, let’s get the remaining ingredients ready. Take the leeks and cut into thick slices. Remove the papery skin off the garlic and slice thinly. Set aside the star anise and the chiles. Pour out the sherry and brandy. Juice the oranges and cut the skin into strips and measure out the soy sauce and brown sugar.
Now put the leeks into the crock pot.
Place the browned short ribs over the leeks.
Now add the garlic and ginger slices and the chiles. Break up the star anise as you add it.
In a bowl combine the sherry, brandy, orange juice, orange rind (give these a bit of a twist so that the essential oils get added), soy sauce and brown sugar. Stir well to combine. Then pour this over the ribs.
These are now ready to cook! Set the crock pot on low heat, set the timer for 10 hours, cover it and let it do its thing.
When the timer goes off, remove the lid, remove the ribs from the crock pot. The bones should slide right out of the meat. Set the meat aside. Toss the chiles, orange peels, and skim the fat. Slice up the oranges. Wash and chop up a good fistful of cilantro. Serve the ribs over rice, spoon a little juice over the meat then top with cilantro and serve with some sliced orange.
