  • Slow Cooker


  • 4-6 Beef Short Ribs
  • 100 g Smoked bacon lardons
  • 1 Full bulb Garlic
  • 2 tbsp Tomato puree
  • 500 ml Red wine
  • 500 ml Beef stock
  • 1 tbsp Cornflour To thicken sauce after cooking
  • Handful Parsley To serve


  • In a large pan, with a little oil, start to brown all sides of your ribs.
  • Slice horizontally into a full garlic bulb a couple of centimeters down and place clove-side in the pan.
  • Add the bacon lardons and tomato purée to the pan, and stir in.
  • Add your wine. Let the mix bubble away until the wine reduces by half.
  • Add everything from your pan to the slow cooker. Pour in the beef stock. Try to arrange the ribs so that the meaty parts are covered in liquid. Add extra stock if you need to
  • Cook on low for 7-8 hours.
  • Transfer the juices from your slow cooker to a sauce pan and bring to the boil to thicken. Slowly add cornflour (mixed with a little water so it’s paste-like) if you need to thicken further.
