Slow Cooker Ribs

This dish can also be made on a stove top or even in the oven using a Dutch oven. It pairs well with any beer, wine or coffee jelly.


2 pounds beef or pork short ribs
1 small onion, diced
1 large carrot, diced
2 stalks celery, chopped
1 small pepper, chopped
4 cloves garlic, crushed
3 Tablespoons jelly
1 teaspoon salt
1 Tablespoon black pepper
3 Tablespoons water or broth

Begin by browning short ribs in a heavy pan. Browning the meat first adds extra flavor but this step can be skipped if you are short on time.

Turn the crock pot on high and cover the bottom of the pot with the veggies. Place the browned meat on top of the veggies. Add jelly, water, salt and pepper to the crock-pot and cover with a lid. Allow to cook for 4-6 hours on high (up to 8 hours on low) or until the meat falls from the bone. Stir occasionally to coat the meat with sauce.
