This recipe is for short ribs, which are not good on the BBQ - too little meat and no fat. BUT, cooked in the crock pot, they are delicious!!!! Here they are!
Crock Pot Braised Bison Short Ribs
3-4 pounds short ribs
½ c. flour
1 ½ t. paprika
1 t. salt
½ t. dry mustard
2 medium onions, sliced and separated into rings
1 c. beer or stock (bison homemade or beef store bought)
1 clove garlic (or more!!)
3 T. water
2 T. flour
If you are using beef, you’ll want to brown the short ribs to remove the fat, but with bison, you can skip this step – you want all the fat they’ll give you! Combine ½ cup flour, paprika, salt and mustard; toss with short ribs. Add rib mixture to crock pot. Place onions, beer (or water or stock) and garlic in crock pot. Stir to mix ribs with onion rings (be sure onions are under ribs). Cover and cook on low 8-12 hours or high 4-6 hours. Remove short ribs to warm serving platter. If thickened gravy is desired, make a smooth paste with 2T flour and water. Turn crock pot to high and stir in paste. Cover and cook until gravy is thickened. Or you can do the gravy in a sauce pan. They are absolutely delicious served over mashed, red potatoes.
