Free Beer or Wine?  You Bet!

As many of you know, I'm working as a mortgage consultant for Wells Fargo Home Mortgage in Westborough MA. If you're looking to purchase a home or refinance, give me a call @ 508-616-1019, or drop me an email @ Ray Schavone . I'll let you know what I can do to help you move forward. If we chose to work together, you'll get a free batch of beer or wine as a closing gift.   

Thanks to the folks who reached out to me regarding a refinance or purchase. It looks like we'll be giving away some closing gifts soon. WooHoo!

Cooking with Beer

Beer Braised Short Ribs - in the Crockpot

Ingredients:
3                  Medium Onions - cut into wedges
3 - 3.5 lbs     bone in beef short ribs
1                  bay leaf
12 oz.           Beer - I like darker beers for cooking
2 Tbsp          Brown Sugar
2 Tbsp          Dijon Mustard
2 Tbsp          Tomato paste
2 tsp             Dried Thyme
2 tsp            Beef bullion granules
1 tsp            Salt
1/4 tsp         Pepper
3 Tbsp         All purpose flour
1/2 cup        Cold Water
Place onions in a 5 qt slow cooker, add ribs & bay leaf. 
In a bowl, combine the beer, brown sugar, mustard, tomato paste, thyme, bullion, salt & pepper. Stir well, pour over meat.  Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours, high 4-5 hours until meat is tender.
Remove meat and vegetables to a serving platter, keep warm. Discard bay leaf. Skim fat from cooking juices. transfer juices to a small sauce pan. Bring liquid to a boil. Combine flour & water in a bowl until smooth. Gradually stir into pan ( NO lumps!) Bring to a boil, stir until thickened.
Serve with your favorite carbs and vegetables.
