Barbecued Short Ribs
1 Hr 35 Min

Our Barbecued Short Ribs are the definition of meaty, tender, and flavorful. They're cooked in a fantastic sauce blend of spices, which then gets spooned over at the end, so ya don't miss a single drop of flavor!

What You'll Need

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 4 pounds beef short ribs
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 (8-ounce) can tomato sauce
  • 3/4 cup tomato juice
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves

What to Do

  1. In a soup pot over medium-high heat, heat oil. Sprinkle ribs evenly with salt and pepper and brown 5 to 7 minutes.
  2. Add remaining ingredients and bring to a boil; cover, reduce heat to low, and cook 1-1/2 hours, or until beef is fork-tender.
  3. Skim fat from sauce; serve ribs with sauce spooned over them.


While you're thoroughly enjoying the aroma of these ribs simmering, why not whip up a batch of our German Potato Salad for a great go-along!

Can this recipe be cooked in a Slow Cooker/Crock Pot? If so, at what Temp. and for how long??

Yes, these short ribs can be cooked in a slow cooker on low heat for 6-7 hours, or until fork tender.

Hi there! We put in chopped tomatoes and green peppers. (You should try our Country Corn Relish!)
