Braised Short Rib Tacos with Apple Slaw

Braised Short Rib Tacos with Apple Slaw

Oh hello braised short rib tacos! I am seriously obsessed with how tender these short ribs turned out. For the braise, char your short ribs, remove, then place all the below ingredients in a pot, add your short rib back in and let it simmer for a few hours. I added in Autumn Glory apples for sweetness and a hint of cinnamon; the flavor & tenderness was unreal. Shred the short ribs and serve with a simple apple slaw using the Autumn Glory apples on the tacos.

These apples are perfect for cooking in braises or stews to add extra flavor but are also just as good as a snack that you can have with your favorite dip (mine would be peanut butter or almond butter!) I particularly love them in this recipe because the apples become such an important part of the flavor because it adds most of the main seasonings that it's giving to the short ribs and helps them become extra tender for shredding.

Ingredients

  • 2 lbs short ribs

  • 2 white onions

  • 2 cans, 14.5 fl oz diced tomatoes

  • 2 Autumn Glory Apples

  • 1 cup red wine

  • 1 1⁄2 teaspoon brown sugar

  • 1 tablespoon apples cider vinegar

  • 1/2 cup water

Apple Slaw

  • 1⁄2 thinly sliced red onion

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1 tablespoon mayo

  • salt and pepper

  • For the Tacos

  • Tortilla and your favorite toppings

Directions

Begin by chopping your onions, apples and garlic. In a deep pot, char and cook your short ribs until all sides are a dark brown. Remove. In the same pot, add your onions, apple and garlic. Sweat out for 2-3 minutes on medium high heat.

Add back in your short ribs and mix well. Next, add in your diced tomatoes, red wine, brown sugar, water and apple cider vinegar. Let this simmer on the stove on medium- low heat for about 2-3 hours until the short ribs are super tender.

While that’s simmering, make your slaw by thinly slicing your apples and red onion. Place in a bowl with olive oil, mayo, lemon juice and salt and pepper.

Once the short rib is tender, remove from the braising liquid and shred. Serve with your slaw on tortillas and your favorite taco toppings.

On a baking sheet lined with parchment, place the goat cheese balls in the freezer for 20-30 minutes. About 15 minutes in, start hearing up your vegetable oil in a deep pan until it gets hot.
