Smokey BBQ Beef Short Ribs Recipe

Smokey BBQ Beef Short Ribs

Serves 4 to 6
Tender beef short ribs are simple with our MM BBQ sauce and a slow cooker. Use boneless or bone–in short ribs.


  • 2 lbs beef short ribs, cut into pieces*
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups Metropolitan Market Hickory Smoke BBQ Sauce & Slather
  • Fresh parsley, chopped
  • Roasted or mashed potatoes or rice, optional


  1. Season short ribs on all sides with salt and pepper. Place short ribs, onion and sauce in slow cooker. Cover and cook on HIGH for 5 to 6 hours or LOW for 7–1/2 to 8–1/2 hours or until beef is fork-tender.*
  2. Remove short ribs and season with additional salt and pepper, if desired. Skim fat from cooking liquid. Spoon cooking liquid over beef.
  3. Top with parsley and serve with roasted or mashed potatoes or rice.
  5. Use Metropolitan Market Teriyaki BBQ Sauce & Slather instead of Metropolitan Market Hickory Smoke Sauce & Slather. One hour before serving add 1–1/2 cups chopped fresh pineapple or drained canned pineapple chunks. Serve with cooked rice.
  6. *If desired, brown short ribs before placing in slow cooker: Heat 1 tablespoon vegetable oil in a large skillet or Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Working in batches, add beef and cook until browned on all sides. Transfer to slow cooker.
