Ingredients

  • 4 lbs. beef short ribs, trimmed of fat
  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • 5 large carrots, cut into 2-in (5 cm) pieces
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 tsp. dried thyme leaves
  • 1 package KnorrĀ® Brown Classic Roast Gravy Mix
  • 1 cup PLUS 2 Tbsp (30 mL) water, divided
  • 2 Tbsp. all-purpose flour

Directions

  • Brown short ribs in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Remove and place in slow cooker. Add onion, carrots, garlic and thyme.
  • Drain fat from skillet. Add 1 cup water and KnorrĀ® Brown Classic Roast Gravy Mix, stirring well and scraping brown bits from bottom of skillet. Pour over ribs.
  • Cover and cook on LOW 8 hours or until short ribs are tender. Remove short ribs and vegetables to serving platter; cover to keep warm.

  • TIP: If desired, replace 1/3 cup water with dry red wine. A sprinkle of chopped fresh parsley adds a nice touch to the finished dish.
