Few things make eating feel more caveman-like than devouring cooked flesh while it’s still on the bone. But, let’s face it, sometimes that can get a bit messy, and our more civilized selves may appreciate our beloved protein source being removed from the skeletal structure. This Fall Off The Bone Beef Short Ribs recipe lets you have the best of both worlds! Much of the meat will naturally fall away from the bone through the cooking process, but there will still be a few delicious morsels that cling to the bone waiting to be removed by your teeth.
- About 3 pounds of beef short ribs
- Juice from 2 oranges
- 1 tbs coconut oil
- 1 tbs chili powder
- 1 yellow onion, chopped
- 3 cloves of garlic, chopped
- Salt and pepper
- Chopped cilantro to taste
- Add salt and pepper liberally to the short ribs. Place the seasoned ribs into a slow cooker.
- Add the juice of two medium-sized oranges to the slow cooker. I just cut the oranges in half, and then hand-squeeze the juice right into the cooker.
- Add the coconut oil, onion, garlic, and chili powder to the slow cooker. Set the slow cooker on low, and cook for 8-10 hours.
- Carefully remove the short ribs from the slow cooker. Much of the meat may have fallen off of the bone; using a slotted spoon for removal can be helpful. Serve with a sprinkling of fresh chopped cilantro on top of the ribs.
