Slow-Cooker Short Ribs with Rosemary Potatoes and Carrots
Recipe via Real Simple Magazine
½ cup low-sodium beef broth
3 tablespoons tomato paste
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
stems (about 10 stems), plus
leaves for garnish
2 tablespoons plus 1¼ tsp. kosher salt, divided
1 teaspoon black pepper, plus more for serving
2 pounds bone-in beef short ribs
12-oz. pkg. frozen pearl onions (I left these out)
3 medium carrots, chopped
4 cloves garlic, smashed and
1½ pounds baby Yukon Gold potatoes
2 rosemary sprigs
1. Stir together broth, tomato paste, parsley stems, 1 teaspoon salt, and pepper in a 6-quart slow cooker. Add short ribs, onions, carrots, and 2 cloves garlic; nest ribs into vegetables. Cover and cook on high until meat is very tender, 5 to 6 hours. Reduce to warm and remove lid.
2. Meanwhile, place potatoes, rosemary, remaining 2 cloves garlic, and 2 tablespoons salt in a stockpot; add water to cover. Bring to a boil over high. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until potatoes are very tender, about 15 minutes. Remove from heat. Remove rosemary and garlic, then drain.
3. Reserving cooking liquid, remove short ribs and vegetables from slow cooker. Skim fat from liquid, then transfer to a blender; add remaining ￼¼ teaspoon salt. With center piece of blender lid removed, secure lid on blender. Place a clean dish towel over lid opening. Puree on medium-high until smooth.
4. Serve potatoes and short ribs with vegetables and sauce. Garnish with parsley leaves and pepper.
