Slow Cooker Braised Short Ribs
  • Slow Cooker Short Ribs:
  • 6 Bone-In Short Ribs; just under 6 pounds
  • Kosher Salt
  • Freshly Ground Black Pepper
  • Olive Oil
  • 1 medium Onion; large dice
  • 1 large Jalapeño; sliced into thick rings
  • 3 Cloves of Garlic; peeled and smashed
  • 1 one inch piece of fresh ginger; sliced thick
  • 1 Cinnamon Stick
  • 2 Whole Star Anise
  • 1 teaspoon Whole Coriander
  • 1 1/2 Quarts Water
Crunchy Kale Salad:
  • 1 1/2 cups Kale; sliced very thinly
  • 1 cup shaved Red Radish
  • 1/4 cup shaved Red Onion
  • 2 tablespoon Red Wine Vinegar
  • 4 tablespoons Olive Oil
  • Salt
  • Freshly Ground Black Pepper
  • For the Short Ribs:
    Preheat your slow cooker to high. Season your Short Ribs on each side with Salt and Freshly Ground Black Pepper. When the pan is hot, add a film of Oil followed by the seasoned Short Ribs. Sear for 3-4 minutes per side until they are a deep golden brown. Don’t overcrowd the pan. If you need to sear in batches, please do so to avoid steaming. As the Short Ribs are seared, remove them to a plate and set aside.
  • When all of the Short Ribs have been seared, add the Onion, Jalapeño, Garlic and Ginger with a pinch of Salt. Cook, stirring occasionally until the vegetables become aromatic, a few minutes. Next add the Water and bring to a simmer. Taste the cooking liquid here, adding additional Salt and Pepper if necessary.  Add the Cinnamon Stick, Star Anise and Coriander. Add the Short Ribs back in and cover with a lid and cook on high for 7-8 hours, or on low for 10-11 hours, until the meat is very tender and falling off the bone.
  • For the Kale Salad:
    Place the sliced Kale in a mixing bowl and begin to massage it for a few minutes until it starts to break down and tenderize. Next add the Radish and Onion with the Vinegar and Oil. Season well with Salt and Pepper and give it a taste, adding more Vinegar or Oil if necessary, depending on your preference.
