What’s Cookin’ in the Parsonage?

I have some tried and true recipes that I have fixed many many times over the years, and this dinner is one of those. When you need a meal prepared in the crock pot that is ready when you come home, a sure-fire recipe is – Short Ribs and Lima Beans. Don’t turn your nose up at the lima beans; I don’t like limas except when they’re served in this dish!  The ribs fall off the bone and are so delicious after cooking in the soups that season them and the beans. I’ve shared the recipe a couple of years ago, but had to post this again, just in case you missed it!  Here’s my recipe:

Short ribs – a couple packages – sorry I don’t have the “pounds”

1 pkg. frozen lima beans
1 pkg. Lipton Onion soup
1 Can vegetable beef soup with barley
1/2 can water
Small can sliced mushrooms

Place the ribs in the bottom of crock pot. Mix the beans, soups and water in a bowl. then pour over ribs. Cook on low for 5-6 hours. Remove ribs and beans. Thicken the liquid in the crock pot with about 1/3 cup of water and 3 tbl. flour mixed together. Turn crock pot to high and stir in flour/water mixture. Cook until thickened (about 10 minutes).

This is great served with mashed potatoes or even a baked potato.  Serve the gravy from the meat over top.  Add a simple salad and a roll and you have a delicious meal with minimal preparation!
