Slow Cooker Short Ribs

  • 2 lbs of bone-in beef short ribs
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 15-oz can plain tomato sauce
  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 4 whole dried dates
  • 6 cloves garlic (smashed)
  • 2 tbsp Savory Spice Blend (see the recipe)

Savory Spice Blend

  • 1 tbsp Salt
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tbsp paprika
  • 1 tsp Black Pepper
  • 1 tsp Black Pepper
  1. Mix the Savory Spice Blend. The blend recipe makes about 3.5 tablespoons but the ribs call for about 2 tablespoons. If you like flavor just use more or save the rest for later.
  2. Rub the Savory Spice Blend into the short ribs.
  3. Melt the coconut oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat, and sear the short ribs 1-2 minutes per side or until they are slightly browned.
  4. Place the short ribs, tomato sauce, balsamic vinegar, dates, and garlic in a slow-cooker. Cover and cook on low for 4-6 hours or until the meat is tender enough to fall apart with a fork. Shred the meat off of the bones.
