Non-traditional breakfast idea: beef short ribs

Recommended Posts

Made beef short ribs for the first time in the crock pot, overnight on low.

Intended to send them in the kids' lunchboxes, but they demanded them for breakfast.

So breakfast was one short rib shared between two boys, a handful of strawberries and "pancakes" made from 2 eggs a medium banana and a teaspoon-ish of almond butter (zapped with the stick blender).

This sounds delicious. Beef short ribs is not something I've ever heard of over here in UK but I'll ask the farmer at the market next time it's on if he can bring me some. I love the way I'm learning new things in this forum. :) Thanks for posting that link

Apparently they call them Jacob's Ladder (I think that's so charming) in the UK. Or sometimes beef thin ribs..which doesn't sound right to me since they aren't thin.

Okay, I woke up this morning to the best smell ever. They hadn't reached 8 hours on low yet, but I could tell they were done after 7 hours. The juices/sauce was super fatty and not in a good way. Just too greasy, so I strained it (the veggies were pretty much all used up so I took a couple of spoonfuls of them and ate them with my first rib and tossed the rest), put it in my fat seperator and poured off the goodness. I sort of think the spices should be added the last hour or so, but forgot about that little slow cooker trick, so I added more spices to the sauce. It's lucious and perfectly thick with no arrowroot needed. I think the veggies and the gelatin from the bones thickened it perfectly. I have a spaghetti squash cooking in my slow cooker now and will also make mashed cauliflower. DELISH!
