Hey all! Today I am stopping by briefly to share one of my favorite quick and easy slow-cooker recipes! These Honey Balsamic Slow-cooker AIP Short Ribs (wow that is a mouthful) are easier to make than they are to say. They are also guaranteed to go over well at any dinner party, whether or not the guests follow the AIP.
Ribs have always been out of my kitchen comfort zone…. not that I am scared of eating them, but I never knew exactly what to do with them! This recipe makes ribs not only delicious, but also EASY! It will take about 15 minutes, tops to prepare this recipe and astound your family with your culinary prowess. Even my mom commented on how simple they were to make (she isn’t a fan of spending much time in the kitchen). To switch it up you can use the same sauce on chicken: just pour the sauce over chicken quarters and bake on 350 for 1 hour!
- 6 pounds bone in short ribs in 4 inch pieces
- Sea salt
- 1 large white onion
- 4 cloves garlic
- ⅓ cup balsamic vinegar
- 2 T honey
- Optional: 2 T arrowroot flour
- Salt the short ribs and broil for 5 minutes each side on a baking sheet
- While the ribs are broiling, add the onion (in quarters), garlic, balsamic vinegar, honey and 1 tsp. sea salt to the blender and blend on high until smooth
- Distribute the browned short ribs in your slow cooker (go ahead and stuff them in there)
- Pour the sauce over them and cook on low for 8-10 hours
- Drizzle extra sauce over ribs when serving
- For a thicker sauce, mix together optional arrowroot flour in a small cup with ¼ cup cold water. Remove the ribs and whisk mixture into remaining sauce before serving
