Winter is slow cooker season - there are plenty of slow cookers being brought out of summer storage and dusted off for dinner duty as the weather turns cold. I can never seem to get enough slow cooker recipes - and one of my favourite cookbook brands, Canadian Living, has released a new book full of recipes for beef, pork and lamb done low and slow - with minimal prep, dinner can be done when everyone arrives home from work or school.
Flavourful beef short ribs are one of my favourite cuts for the slow cooker - they're ideal for simmering, which breaks down tough connective tissues, making them meltingly tender with far more flavour than leaner, more expensive cuts of beef. This dish is simple enough for a weeknight, and makes fantastic dinner party fare when you're looking for something a little different, but still easy to prepare - perfect for cold weather entertaining.
