Slow-Cooked Short Ribs

See also

Smothered in a mouthwatering barbecue sauce, these meaty ribs are a popular entree wherever I serve them. The recipe is great for a busy cook - after everything is combined, the slow cooker does all the work.

What You Need:
(Makes: 12 servings)

2/3 cup of all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons of salt
1/2 teaspoon of pepper
4 to 4 & 1/2 pounds of boneless beef short ribs
1/4 to 1/3 cup of butter
1 large onion, chopped
1 & 1/2 cups of beef broth
3/4 cup of red wine vinegar
3/4 cup of packed brown sugar
1/2 cup of chili sauce
1/3 cup of ketchup
1/3 cup of Worcestershire sauce
5 garlic cloves, minced
1 & 1/2 teaspoons of chili powder

What to Do:
In a large re-sealable plastic bag, combine the flour, salt and pepper. Add ribs in batches and shake to coat. In a large skillet, brown ribs in butter.

STEP 2) Transfer to a 6 quart slow cooker. In the same skillet, combine the remaining ingredients. Cook and stir until mixture comes to a boil; pour over ribs.

STEP 3) Cover crock pot with the lid and cook on low for 9 to 10 hours or until meat is tender.

STEP 4) Enjoy!
