Beef Short Ribs in Slow Cooker

This recipe is originally from the Williams-Sonoma book “The Essentials of Slow Cooking”

but I have modified it a lot to remove a bunch of fat, and to add many more carots

I have used many different broths, but the Pacific foods bone broth one is the best!

Instructions
  1. When buying the short ribs, have butcher cut to 4 in lengths. I typically calculate 2-3 short ribs per person
  2. Do this the night before to make easier the morning of: dice the onions and put in container in fridge. Mince the garlic and put in another container in the fridge
  3. On a plate stir together the flour, 1 teaspoon of salt, and 1/2 teaspoon (about 20 twists) of black pepper. Turn the ribs in the flour mixture shaking off any excess and place ribs on a platter
  4. Working in batches, sear the beef in a dutch oven, turning over every 1 min 30 seconds on each side. So approx 9 min per batch. I normally can fit 4 ribs in the pan, and I normally have about 12 ribs, so factor on this step taking about 30 min. Set aside on a platter after a batch is done
  5. While the beef is searing, use that time to prepare the other ingredients.
  6. After the beef is seared, save the fat in a bowl and wipe out the burnt drippings. Then use the same dutch oven, and cook the onions. Saute until golden brown. And then cook the garlic once the onions are almost done. Note: You can cook the onions while the beef is searing if you want to save time, or cook in the same pan if you want to save on washing.
