Simmering meat slowly is a fall-style cooking method. Mairlyn Smith likes to serve this with either mashed or roasted mini potatoes and steamed or roasted Brussels sprouts.

Ingredients:

  • 4 lb (1.8 kg) simmering short beef ribs, cut into chunks
  • 1tsp (5 mL) iodized salt
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) freshly cracked pepper
  • ½ tsp (2 mL) ground thyme
  • 5 large cloves garlic, minced
  • One – 796 mL (28 fl oz) can no salt added tomatoes
  • 1 cup (250 mL) red wine (or ½ cup/125 mL)
  • 1 cup (250 mL) no salt added beef broth (or ½ cup/125 mL)
  • 3 large carrots, scrubbed add chopped into chunks
  • 2 onions, chopped
  • 2 large sticks fresh rosemary or more if desired

Method:

Place meat in the slow cooker, sprinkle with salt, pepper, thyme and garlic.

Add tomatoes, wine, broth, carrots, onions and rosemary.

Cover, cook on low for 10-12 hours or until the meat is tender.

Professional home economist tips: This recipe produces a lot of liquid. I use the extra liquid to cook barley in the next day – a two for one recipe. But if you like, reduce the wine and broth to ½ cup/125 mL each. To reduce the amount of saturated fat, make this the day before and refrigerate overnight. The next day remove solid fat on top. Reheat and serve.
