I don’t know about you, but I love slow cooker meals. I love throwing everything in the slow cooker before work and having dinner ready when I get home. I saw this recipe from the very talented Lea Ann over at Highlands Ranch Foodie and knew I had to give it a try ASAP. I love short ribs, pasta and capers, so I knew we would like this. I used some boneless short ribs that I found at Costco. This smelled SO good while it was cooking. I could not wait to dig in! We served this over some fettuccine and it was absolutely delicious! We ate this for lunch the next day and it was just as good; Chicken Legs actually thought it was better the second time around. This also freezes well if you need a quick freezer meal.
Short Ribs over Pasta and Capers
1 ½ lbs boneless beef short ribs
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 jar (26oz) spaghetti sauce
3 oz capers, drained and rinsed
1 lb fettuccine, cooked and drained
Place the short ribs in a 6-quart slow cooker. Top with garlic, spaghetti sauce and capers. Cook on low for 8-10 hours. Turn off slow cooker and shred beef with forks. Cook fettuccine according to package directions, drain. Serve short ribs over pasta and top with parmesan cheese, if desired.
