  • Summary

    Comfort food during the winter months is always on my mind. This crockpot or slow cooker recipe is perfect for making an easy-prep, comfort food beef dish. I marinate the meat overnight while I sleep and chop the onion the night before. In the morning, I put the onion and the meat in the crock pot and I’m off for work. You can eat this with some steamed rice and a salad or steamed veggies for a complete meal. The Braised Beef Short Ribs are heaven on a bone. This recipe was taken from a highly recommended cookbook: The Low-GI Slow Cooker: Delicious & Easy Dishes Made Healthy with the Glycemic Index by Dr. Mariza Snyder, Dr. Lauren Clum, and Anna V. Zulaica.
