Short ribs looks so fancy, but really it is so easy to make. Seriously! You just season the ribs, throw them in the slow cooker, pop them in the broiler for a few minutes just to caramelize the maple syrup and ta-da! Dinner is serve. Also, did I mention it tastes delicious. Simple + delicious. My kind of recipe.
- 8 meaty beef short ribs
- 3 tbs Taste of Inspirations Maple & Sage Rub*
- 1/2 cup maple syrup
- Alternate rub if you cannot get Taste of Inspirations:
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1 tsp ground sage
- 1 tsp ground thyme
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- 1/2 tsp ground ginger
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp maple extract
- pinch of nutmeg
If making alternate rub, mix all ingredients in a small bowl.
Rub each beef rib well with the rub. Place (preferably) in a single layer in a 5-7 quart slow cooker.
Set cooker to HI and cook for about 4-5 hrs or LOW for 8 hours. Glaze ribs with maple syrup and pop under a preheated broiler (optional) for about 3 minutes to crisp.
