SLOW COOKER SHORT RIBS

Note: I am posting this as a quick recipe even though it cooks for 9 hours in a slow cooker. It only takes minutes to assemble so the preparation is quick and the meal it is ready when you get home.

2/3 cup flour
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
4 to 4 1/2 lbs boneless beef short ribs
1/4 cup butter
1 large yellow onion, diced
1 1/2 cups beef broth
3/4 cup cider vinegar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup chili sauce
1/3 cup catsup
1/3 cup Worcestershire sauce
5 garlic cloves, minced
1 1/2 tsp chili powder

In a 1-gallon size zip-top plastic bag, combine the flour, salt, and pepper; add ribs in batches and shake to coat well.

In a large skillet, brown the ribs in the butter then transfer to a 5-quart slow cooker or crockpot. In the same skillet, combine the remaining ingredients. Cook, stirring, until mixture comes to a boil. Pour the mixture over the ribs.

Cover the ribs and cook on low heat for 9 hours or until the meat is tender.

Yield: about 12 servings.
