Cherry Coke Short Ribs

An  easy meal of short ribs that cook all day in the crock pot and are fall apart tender.  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 Cherry Coke  crock pot juices as a dip or make a gravy as I did.

Cherry Coke Short Ribs 
2# boneless short ribs
1 1/2 cups Cherry Coke
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.
