Slow cooker beef ribs

I found a 'new to me' meat market last weekend and managed to spend $125! I bought a variety pack that had beef short ribs in it. I had never cooked beef short ribs, but this recipe got rave reviews. We liked it. Kathleen says she prefers these over pork ribs. Don said the opposite. I liked them.

Slow cooker beef ribs

1/3 cup flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 1/2 lbs boneless beef short ribs
1/4 cup butter
1 cup chopped onions
1 cup beef broth
3/4 cup red wine vinegar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup chili sauce
2 tablespoons ketchup
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons minced garlic
1 teaspoon 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.


  1. My husband and daughter love ribs, but I've never known exactly how to cook them. May have to give this one a try.

  2. This is my favorite rib recipe ever. Thank you!
