How to Make Spicy and Sweet Short Ribs

  1. Combine the flour, brown sugar, chile powder, garlic, thyme, 2 teaspoons salt and a few grinds of pepper in a small bowl. Sprinkle all over the short ribs in a single layer in a 6-qt. slow cooker. sprinkle any of the remaining flour mixture on top.
  2. Whisk the apple butter, mustard, ketchup and cider in a medium microwave-safe bowl. Microwave until very hot, then transfer to the slow cooker. Cover and cook on high, 4 hours.
