Anchor Steam Braised Short Ribs
Anchor Steam, the signature brew made by San Francisco’s Anchor Brewing Company, lends its complex, hoppy flavor to our exclusive braising sauce, which is used here to prepare tender bone-in short ribs. Serve with polenta or cooked pasta.
- 5 lb. (2.5 kg) bone-in short ribs
- Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
- 2 Tbs. vegetable oil
- 1 jar (24.5 oz./695 g) Anchor Steam braising sauce
Season the ribs with salt and pepper.
In the stovetop-safe insert of a slow cooker or in a large fry pan over medium-high heat, warm the oil until just smoking. Working in batches, brown the beef on all sides, 8 to 10 minutes per batch. If you used a slow cooker insert, return all the beef to the insert and transfer the insert to the slow cooker base. If you used a fry pan, transfer the beef to a slow cooker.
Add the braising sauce to the beef. Cover and cook on high according to the manufacturer’s instructions until the meat is fork-tender, about 5 hours.
Skim the fat off the sauce and serve immediately. Serves 6 to 8.
