Boneless Short Ribs

I know I am not the only Paleo enthusiast on a budget! Right? One of my pet peeves is when I hear people say... "I can't afford to eat Paleo". Or... on the other side of the coin, those that only eat grass-fed beef and shop at Whole Foods for every meal! Believe me... I would, if I could! How perfect do we have to be? Are there Paleo Perfects and imperfects? I don't believe so! Paleo is not a reenactment of the caveman culture, nor is it a symbol or our economic status. It's a way of life!!! ...A path to vitality, health, wellness, strength and a disease free life! Everyone can afford to eat Paleo! I'm a working mother and wife and I shop everywhere for a deal! I love Costco for their meats (they have excellent quality and excellent prices), Safeway (it's right down the street and I get great deal with my club card), Nob Hill (I personally love their produce), Whole Foods (when I have a little extra cash in my pocket), Staff of Life (they have the BEST price for Carlson's Fish oil), Shoppers Corner (a local favorite, with GREAT butchers), New Leaf Markets (my coconut happy place) and even the Santa Cruz Wharf fish markets (when I can... what a treat).

Tonight's dinner was a cheap package of boneless short ribs from Safeway... $3.80 fed the entire family! My hunter gatherer skills honed in on a deal and I took it! Hope you enjoy. :-)

boneless short ribs, package of 6
2 T fresh rosemary, chopped
2 T fresh thyme, chopped
1 T fresh ground black pepper
pinch sea salt
1 T olive oil
1/2 C red wine
1 T arrowroot powder

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix rosemary, thyme, salt and pepper together. Sprinkle seasoning over short ribs, and let sit at room temperature for about 10-15 minutes. Heat olive oil in a skillet. Brown ribs, about 4-5 minutes on each side. Remove ribs from pan. Mix the arrowroot powder with the red wine and then add to skillet... deglaze skillet, scraping up all the tasty bits! Add the short ribs back to pan, Cover and place in oven for about 30-45 minutes. Serve with your choice of side. Be sure to pour the extra wine sauce/juices over the ribs when serving. Hope you enjoy!

Get affordable grass fed beef... It makes a big difference: They are professional- deliver quickly, and the meat is fresh. They will even alert you to recently cut meats so you can get it even fresher!
