Slow Cooked Beef Short Ribs

Prep Time: 15 mins

Cook Time: 6 Hours

Serves: 6 people



  • 8kg Beef Short Rib (Jacobs Ladder)
  • 50g Dark Brown Sugar
  • 6 Garlic Cloves, peeled and crushed
  • 2 tsp mustard Powder
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 3 tbsp Worcestershire Sauce
  • 2 tbsp rapeseed or olive oil
  • 2 medium Leeks, sliced and rinsed
  • 2 large parsnips, peeled and chopped
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 850ml good, hot beef stock
  • 400g tin chopped tomatoes with herbs


  • In a small bowl mix the seasoning, sugar, garlic, mustard, paprika and Worcestershire sauce together.


  • Place the ribs in a shallow tray and coat with the spice mixture on both sides.  Cover and marinate in the fridge for at least an hour or overnight if time allows.


  • Add all ingredients to a large slow cooker and cook on low for 6-8 hours


  • Remove the bay leaves, skim off any oil and serve with creamy mash and roasted vegetables.


This recipe is also perfect to put together the night before and then just let the slow cooker do the work while you are out at work or taking the kids to play sports, knowing you have a lovely hot meal ready prepared when you get back.  By the time the kids have had a bath and warmed up the potatoes and veggies will be ready and you have a warming stress free dinner. As there are vegetables in the gravy you can serve these instead of roasted.
