These red wine braised short ribs are the perfect slow cooker meal. It’s heart beef short ribs cooked for hours in a mix of red wine, beef broth, thyme and other seasonings. Add in some carrots and mushrooms for added flavor and extras. I served them over mashed potatoes and it was amazing. I’m telling you; this has to be one of the fanciest crockpot meals I’ve ever made, and the meat is fall-off-the-bone good.
So, I love a meal that’s so good and requires hardly any effort. This recipe is just that. If you keep reading, you’ll see there’s really only two steps to making this recipe. Seriously, that’s it. The flavors in these wine short ribs are just amazing. They’re rich and hearty. You’d never know it came out of a crockpot…
