Crockpot Balsamic Braised Short Ribs

Makes: 4-6 servings
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 4-6 hours


For the Short Ribs:

For the Rub:

For the sweet potatoes:


  1. Using paper towels, pat the chuck roast dry. Then rub the dry rub all over, coating each side. Place the roast and remaining ingredients into the crockpot and cook on low for 4-6 hours. You’ll know the short ribs are done with they’re fork-tender, i.e, they’ll gently fall apart with the smallest prod.
  2. Once the ribs are cooked, turn the crockpot to ‘brown’ and shred the meat, letting about 1/2 the remaining sauce absorb.
  3. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 400. Bake the sweet potatoes for 45-60 minutes. After they’re baked and soft, remove the skins. Using a hand mixer, mix the sweet potatoes with the remaining ingredients until smooth.
