One of the most popular posts on my site are these Slow Cooker Beer Braised Short Ribs.  And, it’s no wonder, they are ah-mazing!  They are one of my family’s favorite meals.

These Chipotle Shorts Ribs are equally divine.  The slow cooker makes the meat incredibly tender and the sauce has layers of flavor that just get better over time.

Plus, I love how ridiculously easy they are to make.

For a healthy weeknight, I serve them with brown rice. But if I want to go fancy schmancy, I serve them with risotto.  You can get my favorite, no-fail recipe here or try my easy microwave version.

These Chipotle Short Ribs are one of the best slow cooker recipes of all time.

When it comes to slow cookers, there are many options available – from the basic to the ultra fancy. My favorite is the Hamilton Beach 33967 Set ‘n Forget 6-Quart Programmable Slow Cooker. I have had a number of slow cookers over the years and this is by far my favorite. It’s easy to use and program. It’s just the right size and it has handy clips that hold the lid on securely while you’re traveling.
