Barbecued Beef Short Ribs Ingredients

  • 1 kilo Beef beef short ribs (choose bigger slabs with a reasonable amount of fat; trim fat if necessary)
  • 2 cups Store-Bought American-Style Barbecue Sauce


  • Place short ribs and barbecue sauce in a slow cooker; massage ribs with barbecue sauce for 5 minutes. Cook meat over high heat until tender, about 5 hours, turning every 2 hours to prevent meat from drying out. (you can also use a pressure cooker. add 2 cups water and cook for 45 minutes, after whistling starts, until beef is fork-tender. Otherwise, use a regular pot and cook for about 3 hours, adding more water during cooking to make sure it doesn’t dry up.)
  • Once tender, transfer meat to a preheated grill (reserve barbecue sauce) and cook for 2 minutes or until lightly charred, basting the meat with reserved barbecue sauce. Save some of the sauce for serving.
  • Serve short ribs with a side salad (optional).
