Balsamic Short Ribs is a slow cooked beef rib dish cooked in balsamic vinegar with simple aromatics like garlic, onions and thyme.
I rarely slow cook because I barely have full 8 hours of stay at home, plus I have trust issues in leaving my slow cooker while I am at work or overnight as I sleep but this time, I conquered that trust issue and decided to cook this late night, so we have a nice lunch the next day after. It was a success, house did not burn, and we had a nice succulent beef for lunch, I prepared Balsamic Short Ribs.
I had been planning to do this for quite some time now after I had this delicious beef rib dish in Lahaina Hawaii. It was one of the most tender and succulent beef dishes I tried. Balsamic Short Ribs may look hard to prepare but it’s one of the simplest dishes you will ever make, the Reward-To-Effort was very low. Prepared with just searing it off, preparing the sauce with a simple sauté then chucking it in the slow cooker, it can’t get easier than that. It may look tough, that was my first impression as well as the beef kept its shape after cooking but once you use that fork the meat will just fall off and melt before your eyes. It might sound sour specially with a cup of balsamic vinegar, but the flavour just mellows down after cooking it for 8 hours, try it and see what you are missing.
