  2. Slow Cooker Short Ribs Recipe

Ribs can be daunting. Don’t worry: you are not alone if you find yourself looking past a rack of ribs in the meat counter for something else, something a little bit…easier. I love to eat them but they aren’t something I make very often. As the barbecue realm has become more and more popular, I’m always a little worried I won’t cook ribs correctly. I don’t always have the time or energy to smoke them and grilling them doesn’t always give the perfect results I desire. But when I embarked on a winter full of slow cooker recipes, I realized slow cooking meat gives tender, fall-apart results. So  why not slow cook the ribs?! This process gives a different texture than smoked or grilled ribs. But believe me, the way these melt in your mouth, you won’t be missing a thing. You now have no excuse because a simple sauce and a slow cooker is all you need for quick and delicious ribs!

Slow Cooker Short Ribs

4.60 from 5 votes

Ingredients

  • ¾ cup apple cider vinegar
  • ¼ cup white vinegar
  • 2 tbsp molasses
  • 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp pepper
  • ¾ tsp liquid smoke
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp neutral oil (grapeseed, corn, or vegetable)
  • 2 lb ribs (spare, baby back, or country-style)

Instructions
 

  • In a large bowl, combine all ingredients except for the oil and ribs. Whisk to combine and dissolve the sugar. Set aside.
  • If using a rack of ribs, cut into portions that contain 1-2 bones.
  • Heat oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Sear the ribs on each side until well browned, 4-6 minutes per side. Be sure to not crowd the skillet or the ribs will steam and not brown.
  • Once browned, place the ribs in a 4-6 quart slow cooker.
  • Pour the prepared sauce over the ribs, making sure all are coated.
  • Cover with lid and cook on low 6-8 hours. The ribs will be fall-apart tender. If a thickened sauce is desired, pour into a small kettle and simmer for 10-15 minutes to condense and thicken.
  • Serve immediately and enjoy.
