This recipe uses boneless beef short ribs and, after browning, can be made either in a covered dish in the oven or in your slow cooker. The short ribs turn out extremely tender and flavorful. I normally serve this dish over white rice.

  • Heat oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Cook about half the garlic in the hot oil until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes; add short ribs and cook until completely browned, 2 to 3 minutes per side.

  • Pour beef broth and wine into the pot; bring to a boil while scraping the browned bits of food off of the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon. Transfer ribs and liquid to the crock of your slow cooker; put remaining garlic and sliced onion atop the ribs.

  • Cook on Low for 5 hours. Remove ribs to a wide and shallow serving bowl. Ladle liquid from crock into a large skillet.

  • Bring the liquid in a skillet to a boil and cook until reduced in volume by half, 5 to 7 minutes. Pour sauce over the ribs and turn ribs to coat.

Cook's Note:

Instead of putting into a slow cooker, you can bake in the oven at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 2 hours.

This was very easy to make and turned out great. I made it in my slow cooker using four bone-in short ribs that were especially meaty as opposed some I've had which were mostly fat. Anyway, I followed the recipe exactly and the resulting dish was excellent. We still have some left over which I'm going to turn into open face beef sandwiches later this week using the leftover sauce as the gravy commonly found with that type of meal. Should be even better since the flavors will have fully melded. Read More

I m not sure why this got some bad reviews because the recipe worked great for me. I omitted the fresh garlic and found that the powdered garlic alone provided plenty of garlic flavor. I think the ratio of wine to beef broth was perfect. Just keep in mind that newer crockpots require less cooking time. Read More

This is a great recipe for those who like bland food. The meat was fall-apart delicious, but it lacked flavor. I will try again adding different spices. Read More

YUM!! Cooked exactly as directed but I would say to cut the amount of salt rub you need. I used more beef than the recipe called for yet needed only half the amount of seasoning to coat the meat. Read More

I made these in my instant pot, so instead of 5 hrs the meat cooked in an hour. I also used cornstarch to thicken after removing most of the liquid into a pan on the stove. They were very tender and delicious and the sauce doubled as a light gravy! Read More
