COOK TIME: 8 hours
$18.37/$4.59 per person

3 pounds bone-in beef chuck short ribs $13.47
2 medium onions, peeled and quartered $0.56
2 medium carrots, cut into large chunks $0.32
2 medium parsnips, cut into large chunks $1.00

Kosher salt $0.00

1. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, add the oil. Season the short ribs with salt and pepper. When the oil is hot, brown the short ribs, in batches, until they are browned on all sides, about 3–4 minutes per side.
2. While the short ribs are browning, place a layer of onion and carrot pieces into the bottom of a slow cooker and season them with salt and pepper. Place the browned meat on top. Add the remaining onions and carrots along with the parsnips and turnips. Tie together the rosemary and thyme with the parsley stems and add them to the pot along with the Worcestershire and mustard. Pour over the stout and add enough water to almost cover the contents. Cover and cook on low for 6–8 hours, or until the meat is very tender.
3. To serve, carefully remove the meat and vegetables from the slow cooker. Strain the juices. (Skim off the fat and reserve 1 cup of the juices and one short rib for Round 2 Recipe: Beef and Mushroom Soup.) Serve the ribs with the juice and garnish with chopped parsley leaves.
