I had 6ibs of beef short ribs and used a 19oz bottle of Dinosaur Serious Slathering Sauce (which has a little bit of a hot sauce flavor in it) but to dial it down a bit i upped the honey ton 3 TBS of Honey. Perfection!!!!

If the picture shown is yours, it looks like you bought spareribs rather than short ribs. Otherwise, tender and juicy on those big old bones is what you’re hoping for. Traditionally, you would have cooked carrots with the meat, and then served the meat, carrots, and gravy over the mashed potatoes. Look at short rib recipes by Genius Kitchen to get a general idea. Otherwise, i imagine you had a tasty meal. bd

I made this recipe. I had never done it. I bought a pkg of four pcs. Looked very different that I had in a restaurant. I browned them, then put in crock pot with sautade onions, chicken broth (had no beef) white wine, bar b q sauce, flour And honey. Put on hi for an hour then turned it down to low for 4-5 hours. It was great! Put two on mashed potatoes, took a picture to send to my daughter. She asked me where I was having dinner. How about that? First time.

This was so easy and good! I especially love the additional ingredients that go with the bbq sauce. I added 4 cloves garlic, minced and seared the ribs first. Will try next time without searing. Thanks for sharing!

My first time ever making short ribs. I looked at a lot of recipes but I saw how easy your recipe was and that I had all the ingredients in my kitchen. OMG! Fell right off the bone and had so much flavor! You deserve another five star review!

I was looking for a go-to recipe for short ribs as we buy our beef by the 1/4 steer and always have a package of great short ribs and I am at a loss for what to do with them. Well this is it! These are excellent! I followed the directions exactly and was pleased that i didn’t have to get a pan dirty to sear the meat first. Succulent, wonderful, A 🙂 Thanks for the great recipe.
