  • 4.5 lbs bone-in beef short ribs
  • Coarse kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 cups dry red wine
  • 1 14.5 ounce can of diced tomatoes
  • 2 Tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 cup peeled and chopped carrots
  • 1/2 cup sliced crimini mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup chopped onions
  • 4 garlic cloves minced
  • 2 bay leaves
  • Optional: 2 Tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley


  • Add oil to a large saute pan over medium-high heat.
  • Generously season short ribs with salt and pepper.
  • Once the oil is heated, turn the heat up to high, add the meat to the pan and sear on high until each side is just slightly browned, about 2 minutes each side.
  • Remove short ribs from the pan and transfer to slow cooker, placing the ribs down in an even layer.
  • Add in the next eight ingredients (red wine through bay leaves), and stir to combine.
  • Cook on low heat until meat is tender, about 8-9 hours.
  • Discard bay leaves.
  • Top with fresh parsley, if desired.
