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.

Braised Short Rib Tacos with Apple Slaw


  • 2 lbs short ribs

  • 2 white onions

  • 4 garlic cloves

  • 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

  • 1⁄2 thinly sliced red onion

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1 tablespoon mayo

  • 1⁄2 lemon

  • salt and pepper

  • For the Tacos

  • Tortilla and your favorite toppings


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.

Chicken Tacos with Cabbage Slaw and Chimichurri

IMG_6054 (1) Don't you just LOVE tacos? Think of shredded chicken with a KICK using Jamaican style jerk seasoning that gives a spicy tang. It works perfect with a cabbage and carrot slaw and is topped with a lemon basil & cilantro chimichurri. Continue reading for a step by step and enjoy the full recipe at the end of the post!

Start by making the marinade for your chicken. It can be marinaded anywhere from 1 hour to 1 day for maximum flavor!

Assemble your cabbage and carrot slaw. This should sit in the sauces for at least 30 minutes to allow all the juices to soak into the vegetables, preferably an hour! It tastes better the longer you wait.


To cook your chicken, make packets with parchment paper to allow all the flavor to cook with the chicken. This also lets you easily shred your chicken. While your chicken is cooking, make your chimichurri that takes no time at all! Pre heat your oven to 350 degrees for the chicken and cook for about 20-30 minutes until tender and not raw, depending on oven.

When chicken is HOT, take it out of the oven and take 2 forks and start to shred it. It should be easy to shred. Chicken breasts should work the best for this, but I used thin chicken schnitzel pieces so your cook time may have to be a little longer if you are doing chicken breasts.


After shredding the chicken, warm up your FLOUR tortillas on the stovetop. Assemble with the chicken first, then the cabbage slaw and top with the Chimichurri.
