Cinnamon Spiced Slow Cooker Short Ribs are the ultimate autumn dish. Rich beef short ribs are simmered for hours in a silky cinnamon spiced broth with a secret ingredient that adds even more flavor!
Some people look forward to the spring or summer – for me, it’s all about autumn. The fashion, the foliage and, of course, the familiar fall flavors. I love anything that is warming like cinnamon and pumpkin and with this recipe, we are going to take that flavor profile on a savory note with one of my favorite slow cooker dishes – Cinnamon Spiced Slow Cooker Short Ribs.
There is nothing like short ribs that have been simmering for hours in a slow cooker. A few minutes prep and then the slow cooker does all of the work while you can go about your day. There’s a secret ingredient in this recipe that gives a rounded flavor to the sauce – pumpkin. Yes – you read that right – there is pumpkin in this recipe. It provides the perfect balance for the tomatoes and adds a silky texture to the sauce. In the fall, I often have pumpkin in the fridge from various recipes I’m playing with and if I can use what I have on hand, even better! I detest wasting food so this recipe is a wallet saver….
