I have always dreamed of living in an old farmhouse. I love the character of them, and the thought of refurbishing one is an opportunity that I relish. I consider myself pretty handy. I am relatively versed on many domestic aspects, and I love preserving all things old, and truly appreciate the heritage. Below is a taste of two of my upcycling furniture projects that I feature on Be Fed Again.
Cooking is also my passion. I am happy to spend hours working on a recipe until it is just right, and share with everyone to enjoy.
- Put short ribs in the bowl of a slow cooker. Combine first 7 ingredients in a bowl, then pour over short ribs. Add the water.
- Cover, and cook on high for 3 1/2 hours. Stir ribs, then cook on low for 3 hours.
- Remove ribs and put on a plate. Cover with aluminum foil. Spoon 2 cups pan juices in a clear glass measuring container (or a fat separator if you have one). Wait for fat to rise to the top and discard as much fat as possible. Add 1 Tablespoon of cornstarch and whisk to combine. Pour gravy into sauce pan and heat, stirring constantly until thickened, 2-3 minutes.
- Pour gravy over short ribs and enjoy.
