Paleo Slow Cooker BBQ Short Ribs

I love my slow cooker. especially on days that I’m going to crossfit after work. Nothing says stress free dinner better than coming home, showering, and dinner being ready. Seriously, it’s like the best assistant ever.

I wanted to do something BBQ, but wasn’t sure what. Whole Foods had grass-fed beef short ribs, so I decided to try them. I keep experimenting with trying to get a good BBQ sauce that would be Whole Life challenge compliant, with no added sweetener. Even the all natural sauces in the store usually have some form of sugar. This has been my favorite version to date. It has a nice kick, and plenty of flavor. You can save the extra sauce to use later in the week. It’s still a little more tomatoey than I imagined – so I might play around with the ratios, but it’s still yummy. Experiment! Use it on ribs, chicken, steak…. Anything!

Paleo and WLC compliant BBQ slow cooker short ribs

1.5 lb grass fed short ribs (about 4)
1 can tomato paste
1/2 cup vegetable broth
1/4 cup coconut aminos
1/8 cup apple cider vinegar
1 sweet pear
1 onion
3 cloves garlic
1/4 cup Kalustyan’s southwest seasoning
1 tbsp organic ground ginger
3 tbsp organic stone ground mustard

Cook on low 8-10hrs

Note: You can get Kalustyan’s Southwest Seasoning at whole foods. It makes a great dry rub too. Read labels, but this one is great.
