You’ll Love This Onion Braised Short Ribs Recipe

When making ribs, you want to strive for the most tender meat possible. You want the rib meat to just fall off of the bone. In addition, you want the meat to be as flavorful as possible. With this recipe, your ribs will be both perfectly tender and packed with flavor.

We achieve ideal tenderness by using a slow cooker to make these ribs. Once the ribs are in the crock pot, they'll need to cook on high for four to six hours or low for eight to ten hours. The setting you pick is up to personal preference.

Some cooks will argue until the sun goes out that meat should never be cooked on the high setting if you want optimal tenderness. Others will say that it doesn't matter, or that the differences are negligible. Some cooks just don't have the time in their day to cook a meal on low.

The option you pick is up to your schedule and how well you feel meat turns out when cooked on high. We think that this recipe can effectively be cooked on either setting. No matter what choice you make, you'll enjoy this dinner!
