Crockpot Short Rib Sauce with Butternut Squash Noodles

There’s something and so comforting and particular almost short ribs. They remind me of chilly weather, cozy fires, and the holidays. They’re ane of those meals (at to the lowest degree for me) that y'all don’t ready oft..they’re commonly reserved for special occasions. I’k here to modify that!

This sauce is SO tardily in addition to full of flavor. It feels fancy, merely it’second as uncomplicated every bit throwing everything into a pot. You just rapidly sear the curt ribs, as well as throw all of the ingredients into the crockpot overnight. And voilà! A comforting repast, alongside next to no effort. Waking upwardly to the olfactory property of brusk ribs simmering inward love apple sauce, herbs, and garlic isn’t likewise bad either.

Another thing I dearest. Butternut squeeze noodles. I actually prefer them to zucchini noodles. Don’t go me incorrect, I make dear me close to zucchini noodles too eat them pretty oft, merely the butternut crush noodles accept so much flavor and more of a seize with teeth. They don’t become watery either. I bake them for a few minutes in the often until they’re only “al dente”, just you tin sauté them inward a skillet besides!
If you aren’t a spiralized veggie fan like me, y'all can make this alongside regular pasta of grade. I’d highly recommend trying the spiralized butternut though. It’sec such a neat manner to lower the carb count and pack more veggies as well as nutrients into your meals.

I intend the butternut mash compliments the beef SO well. The nearly sweet butternut squeeze cuts the richness of the sauce.

So. I added ruby-red vino to the sauce. Don’t skip this stride. Adding ruby vino to beef dishes is magical.
This is a dandy repast to make for guests. It makes a lot, and the sauce freezes well also. There’sec zip like having cozy meals in the freezer when yous aren’t inward the mood to fix!
