BBQ Beef Short Ribs for the Slow Cooker
You will need:
- 1 package short ribs
- 1 onion, chopped
- 1 cup water
- 1 cup ketchup
- 6 oz. tomato paste
- ½ cup balsamic vinegar
- ½ cup regular vinegar
- 2 tbsp. mustard
- 1 tbsp. salt
Thaw out short ribs and then cut them into individual one-bone segments.
Heat a frying pan with lard on HI. Sear the rib segments on all sides. Remove from pan and place in the slow cooker.
Reduce heat and add chopped onion to the pan. Add more lard to the pan if needed and sauté till onion is golden.
Add water to the pan, stirring and scraping the bottom of the pan to incorporate any yummy crusties that may be stuck to the bottom of the pan into the sauce.
Then add ketchup, tomato paste, vinegars, mustard and salt. Stir till blended. Pour over ribs in slow cooker.
Turn slow cooker on LOW and let ribs cook all day.
Just before supper, preheat oven on broil to 400degrees. Very carefully (as they should be so tender they are falling apart) place ribs on a parchment lined baking sheet. Put in oven until things are nicely caramelized and perfect. (about 10-15 min.)
Serve! Sooooo good!
