Slow Cooker Cooking: Beef Short Ribs

I've always had a bit of difficulty figuring out how to cook ribs. Bake them and grill them? Boil them and grill them? Boil and bake?

Forget about it and eat them at a restaurant instead?

The latter sounds appealing - unless you have several packages of ribs in the freezer from your meat-purchasing expedition to Muenster, Texas.

When that happens, you have to cook them.

So this is what I did:

Slow-Cooker Beef Short Ribs
Original recipe here
  • 1/3 c flour
  • 1 t salt
  • 1/4 t pepper
  • 2 1/2 lbs boneless beef short ribs
  • 1/4 c butter
  • 1 c chopped onion
  • 1 c beef broth
  • 3/4 c red wine vinegar
  • 3/4 c brown sugar
  • 1/4 c chili sauce
  • 2 T ketchup
  • 2 T Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 T minced garlic
  • 1 t chili powder
Put flour, salt and pepper in a bag; add ribs and shake to coat. Brown ribs in butter in a large skillet. Put in slow cooker. In same skillet, combine remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil, stirring. Pour over ribs. Cover and cook on low for 9 hours.
We had these with barbeque sauce one evening, then with mashed potatoes and good old Bisto gravy another evening.
