Slow-Cooked Short Ribs Recipe

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

"I love this recipe. I've made it at least 6 times now. It's one of my favorites. I found this recipe in a 2000 T.O.H books. It's a keeper.

Now I would like to make a comment to your April 16, 2011 reviewer "Your Worst Critic".
First it seems like you had a bad day? You used very distasteful verbage. Most critics are mindful on how they phrase things. They critique what they don't like w/o offending people. Stop being imprudent. Most people watch what they eat so that they can have a delicous meal like this once in a while.
Thank you Pam for this recipe."

"Made this exactly as written except slow cooked for 7 hours. Meat was very tender (perfect infact) but there was a tangy taste that I didn't care for, maybe too much vinegar. It wasn't bad but I won't make this again."

"I have made this twice and it was excellent both times. I do feel compelled to mention that this is not a diet recipe. I noticed that it does not have the nutritional information. I did substitute canola oil for the butter. The ribs were done and very tender after 6 hours. There was excess oil floating on top at the end which I soaked up with a paper towel to reduce the calories. The flavor and tenderness of the beef was wonderful and even the calories would not keep me from making this again."

"Everytime i looked through my cookbook to find a recipe i always see this one and it looked so good. I finally made it one night and it was delicious!!! Im not to big on beef so next time i will try it with country style ribs. The only thing i would change is the time for the slow cooker. I had it in for 6 hours on low and it was very tender so i don't recommend cooking it for 9. I will be sure to make this again."
