I found a recipe on Campbell’s Kitchen that got rave reviews and it was super easy. It took me less that 5 minutes to throw it all in the Crock Pot.
Finding beef short ribs in the grocery store wasn’t as easy as I thought it would be though. I mean, it’s not like I was looking for something crazy like quail eggs or venison. I just wanted simple short ribs!! They didn’t have them at Kroger or Publix, but I did manage to find them at The Fresh Market.
I’m happy to report that the hubs loved the short ribs! And I know what you’re thinking…it’s possible that he’s pretending to like them to make me feel better, but I did eat them too, and they were delectable, if I do say so myself.
