    Slow Cooker braised boneless beef short ribs in a sauerbraten-like sauce


    • 2 tblsp all-purpose flour
    • 1 tsp seasoned salt
    • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper (or less)
    • 3 pounds boneless or bone-in beef short ribs
    • 2 tblsp olive oil
    • 1/2 large onion, chopped
    • 1/2 cup dry red wine
    • 1/2 cup chile sauce
    • 3 tblsp packed brown sugar (1 quarter cup packet)
    • 3 tblsp red wine vinegar
    • 1 tblsp Worcestershire sauce
    • 1/2 tsp dry mustard powder
    • 1/2 tsp ground mild New Mexico chiles (hot NM peppers would be great too)
    • flour (up to 2 tblsp) as needed for thickening before serving
    • 1/4 cup water


    1. In a gallon food-safe plastic bag combine 2 tblsp flour, seasoned salt and pepper. Coat short ribs in flour mixture just before ready to sear.
    2. Heat olive oil in a large saute pan over medium-high heat. Brown short ribs in oil.
    3. In a slow cooker combine onions, chili sauce, brown sugar, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, mustard and ground chiles. Mix thoroughly. Transfer the short ribs to the slow cooker.
    4. Cover and cook on low for 8 hours.
    5. If the sauce needs thickening remove the ribs and turn slow cooker to high. Mix the remaining 2 tblsp flour with 1/4 cup water, and stir into the sauce. Cook for 10 minutes or until slightly thickened.

      I rather use 1.5 kg of beef ribs instead, pounds are so ancient, I mean American.
