Slow-cooked beef short ribs used two ways. Can anyone say 'M'm! M'm! Good'? Put the meat in a hoagie roll and serve with the reserved broth for dipping. Or, moisten with your favorite barbecue sauce and serve on a toasted bun.

This is so yummy! Used onion soup mix with beef broth since I didn't have beef consommé. Made mash potatoes and ended up eating the carrots too! Definitely a keeper in our house. Read More

This was delicious. Hubby wound up adding potatoes to the crock pot and ate them along with the other vegtables. I followed the suggestion and ate it on a hoagie roll. Super tender and very tasty. Read More

These beef short ribs came out delicious. I made sure to use my large slow cooker so that I could put the ribs in single file. My only hope is that I can find these ribs again as they are far and few between, if at all! Read More

These are great--even leftover! I didn't have any beef consume so I used some beef base--it worked well (water as listed beef base 2 tsp -- no extra liquid). Added a couple of bay leaves and a small squeeze of anchovy paste -- to up the savory ness. Read More

Made it and was really good. Used onion soup and threw in a few small potatoes. Served with flavored rice and hush puppies. Baby carrots were edible also. Read More

Very pleased with the outcome of this recipe. I did not have any consomme but instead subbed 1 3/4 cup water and 1/4 marsala wine and added a beef bullion cube (for 2 cups). As per another reviewer added some dried thyme and bay leaves. Served on hoagie rolls and dipped into the broth. Next time I will chill the broth to skim some of the fat off and reheat. Also thinking for next time to serve maybe with melted cheese and sauted mushrooms as a sandwich. Read More

The short ribs came out marvelous and this is a super easy recipe. My tweaks: 1. I put the meat and juice in the over to brown it a little on top (because my crew likes it well done and it burned off a little fat). 2. I took the rest and added a few of the bones a package of barley a little salt Worcester and red wine and some dehydrated mushrooms and ended up with an amazing barley soup! Read More
