BBQ Beef Short Ribs in the CrockPot

BBQ Beef Short Ribs in the CrockPot
From: LVgeogeek

4 lbs meaty beef short ribs (it was about 10 of them)
2/3 C flour
Salt & pepper to taste
1/4 C butter
1 large onion, chopped
1 1/2 C beef broth
3/4 C red wine vinegar
3/4 C brown sugar, packed
3/4 C vinegar based hot sauce (I used Huy Fong Thai hot sauce)
1 tsp. hot chili paste (also from Huy Fong- the one with the gold label)
1/3 C Worcestershire sauce
5 cloves garlic, chopped

In a 1 gallon Ziploc bag add flour salt and pepper. Add the ribs in batches and shake to coat (a la shake-n-bake).

In a large skillet, melt butter then add ribs to brown on all sides. When browned, place ribs in crock pot.

Using the same skillet with the butter and meaty goodness... add onion, beef broth, red wine vinegar, brown sugar, hot sauce, chili paste, Worcestershire sauce and garlic. Stir to combine and heat to a boil. Then add to crock pot.

Cook for 8 hours on low (and do not remove the lid no matter how tempting).

Remove ribs from crock pot and set aside. Using a stick blender, blend the sauce in the crock pot until smooth (or you could use a regular blender). Serve ribs with sauce.

There will be enough sauce leftover to use on other stuff (chicken, pork, etc) it's too good to just dump out.
