Braised Short Ribs
Start with fabulous beef. Touchstone. Yum.
Season the meat with salt and pepper, then dust with flour. Brown well, put into a slow cooker. Remove some of the grease form the pan, add sliced onions, grated carrots, smashed/diced garlic, a teaspoon of fennel seed; saute until it starts to brown. Add half a can of crushed tomatoes, a bay leaf, 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika. Cook down until reduced quite a bit, then add the rest of the crushed tomatoes and reduce further. Pour over the ribs in the slow cooker.
Cook on low, 7-8 hours.
