Crock Pot Boneless Beef Ribs



I had mentioned to my husband that I really wanted to make some boneless beef ribs for dinner and he thought that it sounded great. However we wanted something a little different other than just cooking them on the BBQ. I looked on line and found some really wonderful sounding recipes but the one that really caught my eye was using a crock pot. We all know how much I love to use mine, this recipe has so many items in it that I have either never used or would have never thought to put together in the same dish. I must say though these were by far the best boneless beef ribs I have ever had, I bet they would be just as awesome if I used pork ribs too.


2/3 C. - Flour
2 Tsp. - Salt
1/2 Tsp. - Pepper
4 Lbs. - Boneless Beef Ribs
1/4 C. - Butter
1 Large - Chopped Onion
1 ½ C. - Beef Broth
3/4 C. - Garlic Red Wine Vinegar
3/4 C. - Packed Brown Sugar
1/2 C. - Sweet Chili Sauce
1/3 C. - Ketchup
3 Tbs. - Chopped Garlic
1 ½ Tsp. - Chili Powder


In a large zippy bag place the flour, salt & pepper, mix to combine. Add the ribs in batches and shake to coat. In a large frying pan melt the butter and brown the ribs on all sides, transfer the browned ribs to the bottom of a 5 qt crock pot. In the same frying pan combine the remaining items and bring to a boil, pour over the ribs. Cover and cook on low for 10-12 hours or until meat is tender and falling apart. Serve hot over mashed taters then ladle some of the sauce over top.

You know, I never use my crock-pot and it is recipes like this that make me wonder why not?

With all the wonderful flavors in the sauce I bet this was wonderful. And smelling it simmering away must have been pretty good too.

Thanks for doing all the leg work for finding this awesome recipe. I love tangy and sweet beef. This is a keeper.

This looks great! What do you use for sweet chili sauce?

MaryBeth said...

Leticia, my husband has his favorite sweet chili sauce that we buy here in Beaverton called Big Dan's. However any sweet chili sauce that you have in your area would work just great.

Looks delicious! I'd probably never do beef ribs on the grill but in the crock pot it sound tempting. The recipe sounds great.

Mary Beth, thank for the recipe. Do I need to slice the short ribs before browning?
