Sunday Dinner

Beef Short Ribs on a bed of Mashed Cauliflower

The photograph's a little fuzzy but the flavor was anything but! Now that's comfort food! We both loved this dish. The meat was so tender. Fall-off-the-bone tender.

Added carbs would have added nothing to this meal.

Ooooh fall-off-the-bone tender... you're making me hungry!

Did you cook it yourself? If so, can you spare any tips? I've been trying to make my own fall-off-the-bone meat for aaaaages and I've never actually got it :(

Love your blog and all the pictures! That meal looks awesome (ribs). Must try the choco-coffee & mashed cauliflower.

Solshine said...

Alright, you seem to love the mashed cauliflower. What's your trick to keep it from tasting bitter like it does when I try to make it?

How'd you fix those delish looking ribs, too?

Harry, you are doing a marvelous job of sticking to the low carb lifestyle and blogging your menus. I think today would be a great day to pat yourself on the back! :-) I thank you for taking the time to do all this - it really, really helps me!

Sadekat said...

Thanks for the dinner idea! I was trying to figure out what to make tonight!

Harry said...

Howdy, Erika.

The trick is actually in the cooking method. We used a slow-cooker.

All we did was buy some well-marbled short ribs and added a few simple ingredients to them in the slow-cooker.

We added a can of diced, organic tomatoes, some fresh, chopped garlic and onion and a little red wine. My wife also spiced it up with some sea salt, fresh ground pepper, cumin and a few fennel seeds.

I think the whole cook time was about six-hours. It's definitely low-heat, slow cooking.

Put that bad boy on a bed of mashed cauliflower and you're in business. Trust me. :)

What I really love about that dish is the broth that remains afterwards. I'm planning on making some simple and delicious low-carb veggie soup with it later this week.

Try using a slow cooker, if you haven't already. They're cheap and super simple to use. If I can do it ... anyone can do it!

Thanks for your kind words, dance. Much appreciated!

I'm happy to know you're following my blog. :)

Harry said...

Howdy, Solshine.

Please check out my reply to Erika re: the ribs.

I'll post my cauliflower recipe in today's blog. I hope to have it up by later tonight.

And, thank you, thank you, thank you! You're so sweet. Your kind remarks made my day! :)

Harry said...

You're most welcome, Sadekat.

Did you make the ribs and mash? If so, how did they turn out?

Sadekat said...

I am heading to the store right now to look for ribs.

Vadim said...

Harry, you are stealing my women from me, lol! That meat of the bone, finger licking, tongue sealting, and mouth foaming recipe looooooks gooooood! You are a true low carb genious! And I do love your blog and your sense of community. As always great job!

NewVision said...

Pictures are great as usual Harry. Your doing great in the cooking department. Everyone wants to come to your house for dinner. LOL

Harry said...

Thanks, Vadim and NewVision!

You've brightened a day that was in need of brightening! :)
