Easy Beef Short Ribs

Now that I spend my days chasing an adorable 11 month old boy around the house, easy meals are more of a must now than ever. However, easy doesn't have to mean bland or unhealthy. This meal can be made in a large Dutch oven or in your slow cooker. I choose the slow cooker to prevent heating up the house during a hot summer day while allowing me to "set it and forget it." The meat is so flavorful and tender that it just falls off the bone and melts in your mouth. Even my young son enjoyed the tender bites. 3 pounds Beef Short Ribs 1/4 cup All Purpose Flour 1 teaspoon Salt 1 teaspoon Black Pepper 2 Tablespoons Vegetable Oil 1 large Yellow Onion 4 Carrots 2 cloves Garlic, peeled and smashed 1 teaspoon Dried Thyme 1 Bay Leaf 1/4 cup Dry Red Wine 11/2 - 2 cups Water 1. Combine flour, salt and pepper in a shallow dish. Lightly dust each short rib, making sure to remove excess coating. Do not throw out the excess flour; this will be used later.
