Number of Servings: 8


    2 lbs lean beef short ribs
    Salt and pepper to taste
    6-10 small-medium Yukon Gold potatoes, quartered
    1 large onion, chopped
    8 oz. baby carrots
    3 cloves of garlic, finely minced
    1 cup red table wine
    1 can fat-free Cream of Mushroom soup
    1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
    Water as needed


Place everything into a Slow Cooker and cook on high for 4 hours, then on low for 2 hours. It comes out best when I cook it 4 hours on day one, then 2 hours the next day. Before I turn the slow cooker on the second day, I skim the congealed fat from the top of the mixture. The ribs seem to soak in more flavor when cooked over 2 days. Mushrooms, celery, peppers, just about any vegetable you like can go in the pot! Makes about 8-10 servings.

For another 108 calories, you can serve it over 1/2 cup brown rice.

    Very bland.... The meat didn't take any of the seasonings too well :-( - 1/26/13

    I tweaked the recipe a little bit (no wine, low sodium chicken broth instead). 6 hours of cooking was definitely not long enough, the meat was still really tough. I think it could have cooked on high for 12 hours. The taste was okay. - 3/31/10

    Very Good
    Most recipes I see for slow cooker beef ribs have either a barbeque sauce or an Asian sweet-sour type of sauce, and this was refreshingly different.I added dry Italian herb mix and chopped boiled kale, and it made a very tasty sauce. It tasted a bit like coq au vin with beef instead of chicken. - 1/22/09
