Crock Pot Beef Short Ribs

This is one of my favorite comfort foods or even special occasion foods because it’s really rich and it’s a little expensive but well worth it. Make sure you buy the beef short ribs with the bones in them, without the bones they don’t turn out right.

3-4 beef short ribs per person
1/4 cup worcestershire sauce
2-3 cups red wine (enough to come halfway up ribs)
1 beef bullion cube
1 cup frozen pearl onions
1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper

In your crock pot add everything and set on high for 8 hours. The last hour or two you can crack the lid to make the sauce thicker if you want. Serve over buttered egg noodles with your favorite veggie.



I apoligize for the long absence, work and almost 2 year old has kept me so busy and tired I don’t have any me time. I’ll try to update this as much as I can but that may not be as much as I used to.

Tonight is my anniversary and I just had to make my Super Salmon and steamed asparagus with some of This wine. The wine has some significance for us. Last Tuesday was our 8th wedding anniversary and at our wedding we drank that wine….and it was very yummy. But since we were on vacation we didn’t have the time to have a special dinner….I guess we are making up for it now.

Quick Beef Stroganoff

Easy Beef Stroganoff

This recipe is really fast and easy to make. By the time the water has come up to boil and the pasta is cooked the whole dish is ready to eat.  It’s also a great way to use left over tritip or steaks.  You can also make this vegetarian by using portabella mushrooms and vegetable stock.

1 pound egg noodles
1 pound steak, sliced into small strips
1/2 pound mushrooms, sliced
1/2 medium onion, sliced
1 clove garlic, minced
1 cup red wine
1/2 cup sherry (or vermouth)
1/4 cup worcestershire sauce
1 cup beef stock
1/2 cup sour cream
lots of black pepper
chives to garnish if desired

Boil noodles according to package instructions. Saute mushrooms, onions and garlic in a little bit of oil. If beef is raw cook with the mushrooms. Once the mushrooms are a little brown add wine, sherry, worcestershire sauce, beef stock and black pepper. Reduce down for about 10 minutes on a low flame or burner. Once the noodles are cooked add sour cream to mushrooms and also add meat if it is already cooked. Toss noodles and meat/mushroom mixture, let sit for 5-10 minutes to thicken some and serve, garnishing with chives if desired.
