HOW TO COOK SHORT RIBS IN A CROCKPOT
I love to make beef short ribs without the bones. It tastes better to not have to eat around bones. Plus, this recipe only requires 5 ingredients!
Like any meat, it is important to season each piece well to have amazing flavor. I like to season both sides of the short ribs with salt and pepper to keep it nice and simple. It is good to pat the salt and pepper into the short ribs so it really takes in the flavor, then place each piece into the crockpot.
