    Just checking in as I'm going to make up a recipe of my own for my crockpot today.

    I prefer to work from preexisting recipes, anybody got one?

  3. THREE bottles of HOTD Adam? That hurts my heart. I believe you should use good beer/wine in cooking, but that just seems wasteful.

    My go-to dark braising beers are Ommegang Abbey Ale or Sam Smith's Oatmeal Stout. Both are easy to find, very inexpensive, and, from my own trial and error, pretty indistinguishable in the finished dish from other significantly more pricey beers. You can take any recipe that requires red wine and sub it for the Ommegang. I did it with Julia Child's Boeuf Bourguignon and it was fan-fucking-tastic.

    Here's a simple braised short rib recipe

    4bs beef short ribs
    1 cup beef stock
    24oz of robust porter
    1 medium onion, thick sliced
    1/4 cup molasses
    2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
    2 tsp of minced garlic
    1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
    Couple springs of thyme and rosemary
    kosher salt and fresh cracked black pepper

    Salt and pepper the ribs. Brown ribs in a dutch oven over med-high heat. Transfer to crock pot. Add in the onions.

    Mix the rest in a large bowl and pour over the ribs and onions. Set crock pot to low for 10-12 hours or high for 5-6 hours. When done, use a slotted spoon to transfer meat and onions to a plate.

    You could also skim fat from the cooking liquid, then make a gravy or sauce with it.
