Short RibsThis Slow Cooked Short Ribs recipe is one of my favorites. It’s the ultimate comfort food, especially served over traditional Indian basmati rice, and a wonderful dinner to come home to after a long day at work. Serves 5 to 6.



  • 2 lbs short ribs
  • ½ head of cauliflower, chopped into florets
  • ½ to 1 lb of small carrots, peeled, with the bases cut off
  • 1 tablespoon virgin coconut oil
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons Melt® Organic
  • ½ onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon of high quality curry powder mix – the quality will affect the outcome
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Pepper to taste
  • 1 cup homemade bone broth
  • 1-14 oz can of Glen Muir roasted chopped tomatoes
  • Cilantro, leaves removed from stems, to taste


  • Turn Crock Pot on “high”.
  • On your stovetop, preheat a skillet on medium with virgin coconut oil. When the oil is liquid (but not smoking) and the pan is hot, brown the short ribs.
  • Add the browned short ribs to the Crock Pot with its juices.
  • Turn the stove top down to medium-low and sauté the onions in Melt until the onions have softened.
  • Add the garlic, curry powder, salt, and pepper, and sauté lightly for a few minutes to activate the spices.
  • Add the broth and tomatoes to the skillet and bring to a simmer.
  • Pour and scrape all of the skillet contents over the short ribs in the Crock Pot.
  • Add carrots and cauliflower to your Crock Pot, but only so they are resting on top and are NOT submerged in liquid.
  • Cook on high in your Crock Pot for 6 to 8 hours. Add the cilantro leaves about 30 minutes prior to serving.
  • Serve with cooked rice of your choice.
