These ribs sounds so delicious. I cannot wait to try them and see what my family thinks. I have been looking for a rib recipe like this for a while. I think this would be great for the family dinner this weekend. Do you cut the ribs before or after cooking? Great post!

Why do you think they are called "short ribs"?

Hi there! Short ribs get their name because they are taken from a place on the animal called the "short plate". Hope this was helpful!

I just put this on my grocery list to make this week. I love the crock pot and have always liked short ribs. I know a lot of my friends and family only think of pork spare ribs when they think of ribs, but I'm going to educate them! lol

look forward to trying this.
