This combines the hearty, spicy flavors of my beloved slow cooker short ribs with my all-time favorite comfort food: fries and gravy. With a little prep in the morning, it's just about ready when I come home from work (plus, the kitchen smells amazing!). —Erin DeWitt, Long Beach, California
Our whole family is excited when I plug in the slow cooker to make these fall-off-the-bone tender ribs. We like them served over rice or egg noodles. Husband Mark and I have eight children, ages 16 years to 3 months, whom I homeschool.
"This recipe takes no time to prepare and results in the most delicious, fall-off-the-bone short ribs," writes Lamya Asiff of Delburne, Alberta. "The longer you cook them, the better they get!" TIP: "Serve them on a bed of rice," Lamya suggests.
Smothered in a mouthwatering barbecue sauce, these meaty ribs are a popular entree wherever I serve them. The recipe is great for a busy cook - after everything is combined, the slow cooker does all the work.—Pam Halfhill, Medina, Ohio
When the leaves start falling, I crave comfort foods like hearty slow-cooked stews and braised meats. I love this recipe because short ribs that cook until tender smell and taste impressive, but are super easy to make.—Melissa Turkington, Camano Islands, Washington
