Dr Pepper Short Ribs

This was a great way to start off the New Year with an easy meal of short ribs cooking all day in the crock pot.  They have lots of flavor and you can use as a topping for potatoes, polenta or just use in a sandwich and use the strained Dr Pepper crock pot juices as a dip.




Dr Pepper Short Ribs 


2# boneless short ribs
1 1/2 cups Dr Pepper
3/4 cup beef broth
2 shallots, cut in half
1/2 cup ketchup
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 tsp adobe or chili powder
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper

Season and brown the short ribs in 2 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil.  Place into the crock pot with the rest of the ingredients.  Cook over medium low heat for 8 hours.  Remove the meat and cut or shred (it should fall apart).  Taste to see if it needs any additional salt and pepper.
