This is the ultimate paleo, low-carb, & gluten-free comfort food. Seared beef short ribs simmer in a slow cooker in a beautiful red wine sauce until the meat is so tender and juicy it literally falls right off the bone.
  1. Rinse meat under cold water and dry with paper towels. Season short ribs with salt and pepper.
  2. Heat coconut oil in large skillet. Braise short ribs over a medium heat for 4 minutes on each side. Do this in batches so as not to crowd the pan.
  3. Transfer meat to your slow cooker.
  4. Add vegetables to the skillet, stir and cook for 8 minutes. Add flour and tomato paste and stir. Cook for another minute. Now stir in your wine, and bring to a boil. Lower heat to medium and simmer to reduce for 8 minutes. Add the rosemary, thyme, salt and bay leaf, stir in the beef stock, and stir.
  5. Remove from stove and pour sauce over the short ribs in the slow cooker. Turn on slow cooker and cook on low for 7 to 8 hours.
