This combines the hearty, spicy flavors of my beloved slow cooker short ribs with my all-time favorite comfort food: fries and gravy. With a little prep in the morning, it's just about ready when I come home from work (plus, the kitchen smells amazing!). —Erin DeWitt, Long Beach, California

  1. Toss short ribs with flour and pepper, shaking off excess; reserve remaining flour mixture. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat; brown ribs on all sides. Transfer to a 3-qt. slow cooker, reserving drippings.
  2. In same skillet, saute onion in drippings over medium heat until tender, 2-3 minutes. Add garlic; cook and stir 1 minute. Stir in 1 cup stock; bring to a boil, stirring to loosen browned bits from pan.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk reserved flour mixture, chili sauce, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, brown sugar and remaining stock until smooth; stir into onion mixture. Pour over ribs.
  4. Cook, covered, on low until ribs are tender, 6-8 hours. Remove ribs; shred with two forks and keep warm. Skim fat from onion mixture; puree using an immersion blender. (Or, cool slightly and puree in a blender; return to slow cooker to heat through.)
  5. Cook potatoes according to package directions. Serve beef over potatoes; top with gravy and cheese. Yield: 4 servings.

"Our whole family loved this! The gravy definitely has a kick that was excellent with the fries and short ribs but powerful on its own :)"

"We loved this! I didn't notice that the recipe called for boneless short ribs, so it was a bit of extra work. I cut the recipe in half for the two of us and used two bone-in short ribs which weighed in at about a pound. I used mozzarella "pearls" instead of the cheddar curds and my husband gobbled it up. Since I'm very sensitive to spicy foods I cut the 2 tablespoons of Sriracha my half-sized recipe called for, to one. Next time I will cut it to about 1-1/2 teaspoons so that I can gobble right along with him.

Update: I forgot to specify that I used my 1.5-quart oval slow cooker for my half-sized version of this dish."
