Prep Time 10 mins
Cook Time 6 hrs
Total Time 6 hrs 10 mins

Ingredients
 

  • 1kg of beef short ribs

Marinade

  • 2tbs apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp dried rosemary
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1/2 cup bbq sauce
  • 1tbs tomato paste
  • 1 tbs smoked paprika
  • 1tbs garlic powder(could use fresh)
  • 1tbs onion powder
  • 2tbs black strap molasses (could use honey, maple or brown sugar but really recommend trying molasses)
  • 1 cup of beef stock
  • Season with pepper

Instructions
 

  • Place all the marinade ingredients (except beef stock) into a bowl and mix.
  • Baste the ribs with half of the marinade and place the remainder of the marinate into the fridge until later.
  • Pour the stock into the slow cooker and add ribs.
  • 3 hours into cooking time gently turn the ribs over and cover with the remainder of marinade (see notes)
  • If during the cooking process you notice the ribs drying scoop the sauce from the bottom of the slow cooker pour over the top it also adds more flavour.
  • Slow cook for 6 - 7 hours on low
  • Or 5 hours on low and then 1 hour on high (I find this works best for ribs)
  • Notes : instead of basting half way through cooking time you could baste right at the end and pop it in a preheated 200 deg oven for 10 mins. The extra basting helps make it sweet and sticky.

  1. Pretty good! I used maple syrup instead of molasses. Meat fell off the bone. Served with coleslaw & mashed potato.
