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 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
These ribs are an easy alternative to traditionally braised short ribs—you don't need to pay any attention to them once you get them in the slow cooker (that makes this one of my favorite short ribs recipes!). —Rebekah Beyer, Sabetha, Kansas
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
"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.
