simple braised beef short ribs recipe is one that I can get ready in just 20 minutes, then cook.  If I’m using a slow cooker it can cook for 9 hours, or braise in the oven for 3+ hours.  Either way that gives me lots of time to focus on other things like getting decorations up, cleaning the house and trying to figure out what the heck to get everyone for their holiday presents.


We are lucky in that we had a Walmart grocery market open up close by, where I picked up some fresh produce for the meal like carrots, onions and celery sticks.  Especially in the slow cooker these are great to mix in with the ribs.  While at Walmart I also purchased Hunt’s Tomato Paste, which is from vine-ripened tomatoes and gives the thick and rich taste.  The taste goes so well with the broth, wine and herbs that I add to this dish.  I also add Hunt’s Diced Tomatoes, which are peeled using their steaming process that’s free of chemicals.  These tomatoes have a nice brisk taste, and like the other veggies add texture to the recipe.

Here are a few reasons I love this recipe:

  • Kids like short ribs as the meat is moist and tender,
  • No mess!  You could even buy pre-diced carrots, onions and celery sticks
  • Flexible list of ingredients.  If you are be missing some of the ingredients below or want to add in others not mentioned it will likely still taste great.
  • Leftovers taste just as good.  I think they taste even better as they’ve soaked in the flavors more.  Just scrape off the fat and re-heat at 300 F covered in aluminum until it’s warm enough to eat.
  • No sides needed.You have your veggies in cooked alongside the meat (add more as desired).
  • By using these ConAgra products and other ingredients like fresh produce, dinner can be simple and delicious!
