The slow cooker really shines when you use a cut of meat like short ribs. They benefit from cooking on low heat over a long time so that the meat can turn meltingly tender. Here, they’re cooked with pearl onions so they can absorb all the delicious juices. Then, you’ll boil some creamy Yukon Gold potatoes for an easy side dish. It’s an indulgent meal with little effort, perfect for Sunday family dinner. Pro tip: look for similarly-sized potatoes so that they cook in the same amount of time. If you can’t, cut bigger ones down so they all have the same thickness.
