The beauty of slow cooking brings out the delectable flavors of this short ribs. The simplicity of pantry staple spices coupled with red wine makes this dish unbelievably delicious. The carrots and onions have the right texture and sweetness. The meat is fork tender. This recipe does not have a lot of sauce but you can add some beef broth if you are looking for sauce to drizzle on the meat. This is a rib recipe that your family will keep asking for more – that’s just what my son kept doing; he could not get enough of this super flavorful meal. I served this as is without any additional side dish. At times I do serve this dish with mashed potatoes or beans and rice. I hope you will enjoy this meal as much as we do. Happy Cooking.
