BBQ Beef Short Ribs

Doreen Fish


My DH and I aren't real big beef eaters but when I make these we both make up for the times we didn't eat beef as we literally stuff ourselves!!! I made these along with my "Salmon Stuffed with Goat Cheese" on our wedding day. "Fall off the bone deliciousness" and I do not put mine on the BBQ as by the time they are done they are falling off the bone!!

How to Make BBQ Beef Short Ribs


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
    In a large bowl toss ribs with vegetable oil and steak spice.
    In another bowl whisk together the garlic, beer, bbq sauce,chili sauce, honey,sambal, worcestershire sauce and cilantro. Stir in onion and set aside.
    I a large fry pan sear ribs for 2 - 3 mins per side or until lightly charred. Transfer ribs to a roasting pan. Pur the sauce over and the ribs and stir to coat evenly. Cover with lid or foil. Braise for 1 1/2 - 2 hours until meat is tender and almost falls from bone.
    Transfer to a platter, reserving sauce
    The juices are awesome over steamed rice.
  2. Now you can go the one step further and grill ribs 5-6 mins per side or until lightly charred and tender, basking with sauces.
    **I just skip this step.
