Slow-cooked Beef Short Ribs

These slow-cooked beef short ribs are one of those meals that you just season, toss in the oven, and bake to perfection. It bakes for 3 hours giving you enough time to nap, do errands/chores, and catch up on other things. It is delicious with a side of creamy mashed potatoes and/or cheesy scalloped potatoes.

My husband who is a meat lover enjoyed these so much that I made these 3 times in a week’s time! Yes, insane right? It is tangy, slightly sweet and super tender. Many recipes call for ketchup and BBQ sauce for slow-cooked beef short ribs. I used a common pantry staple of mine; pomegranate molasses. It is tangy and sweet; it offers the same dimension of flavor of any BBQ sauce. I also used worchestire sauce which goes really well with red meat and offers so much flavor. Lastly, I added liquid smoke which you can find in most markets. This ingredient will offer a smoky flavor!

These simple ingredients bring a flavorful dish to life especially that head of garlic that will roast and be divine. I urge you to try this out! I hope you enjoy it as much as my family does.

  • 2 lbs Boneless Beef Short Ribs
  • 1/2 cup Pomegranate Molasses
  • 1/2 cup Worchestire Sauce
  • 1 Head of Garlic peeled
  • 1/4 cup Liquid Smoke
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
  • 1 tbsp Garlic Powder


  • Preheat oven to 300F.
  • Season the boneless beef short ribs with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Place them into the desired baking pan.
  • In a bowl, mix together the liquid smoke, pomegranate molasses, and worchestire sauce. Pour this all over the beef short ribs. Make sure the beef short ribs are covered in sauce.
  • Add the garlic cloves into the crevices between the meat.
  • Cover tightly with foil and bake for 2.5 hours on the Middle rack in the oven. Then flip them over and bake for another 20-30 minutes uncovered. Spoon the sauce on top of the meat. Make sure the ribs are fork tender. If not, cover and bake for a few more minutres.
  • Serve with mashed potatoes !


The first time I made these, I baked the ribs for 1 hour on 300 then another hour at 350 then raising to 375 F for the final hour. It came out beautifully. I did this because I had to share the oven with my scalloped potatoes which needed to be baked at a higher temp than 3oo. So, you can do this as well if need be.
