"Beef ribs with a homemade BBQ sauce in a slow cooker (or on top of stove, if you have the time). Very, very good made on High for 4 hours...better on Low for 8. Serve over hot cooked rice." — sharron

beef short ribs
It sounds like it would be too sweet, but in the end it is just perfect. Great for the upcoming fall and winter seasons, fantastic aromas you can use up to 3 lbs of short ribs, with this recipe.
I added half a onion and used apple cider vinegar instead (because thats what I had). Cooked it on high for two hours and then on low for about 4.5 hours. The sauce never thickened, in fact it was more of a liquid. Definitely had a more tomato taste then BBQ. Still good though!
I would definitely sear the ribs first next time and would also leave the water out of the sauce. The flavor was really good, but we prefer a thicker sauce.
Good and easy...
Easy and really good. Made as directed, except I did brown my ribs before putting in crock pot.
This recipe came out terrific. I seasoned the ribs with salt and pepper then seared them on all sides before adding them to the Slow Cooker. The searing made for a nice, caramelized crust on the outside of the ribs. Cooked these for 7 hours on Low. There was some grease so I simply absorbed it off the top using tongs and a paper towel. Super!
Simple, easy, and tasty. Definitely a winner! I didn't have an oven to work with where I was cooking so a number of the other slow cooker recipes that required pre-braising and the like didn't work for me. I made it pretty much exactly as written except for cooking on high for about five hours. Everyone enjoyed it and I'll be adding it to my regular repertoire.
There was way too much sauce and I even used 3 lbs of ribs instead of 2. Good flavor, just too much. Also, I don't know if it was just the ribs I got or if all beef ribs are this way, but there was no meat on them! After they cooked, there was about an inch of fat in a wide six qt. slow cooker and maybe a bite of meat on each rib, if that. Very disappointing.
