Oven Barbequed Beef Short Ribs


Because of the connective tissue ribs are tough and require long cooking to soften them up. Beef Short Ribs do take a while to cook but the taste rewards you for being so patient. These ribs promise to be finger licking good!


  • 2 1/2 to 3 pound beef short ribs
  • 1 large onion sliced
  • 2 tbsp fat or cooking oil
  • 1/2 cup vinegar
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 cup catsup
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 3 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp prepared mustard
  • 1/2 cup celery
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp cayenne red pepper optional
  • 1 tsp chili powder optional


Step 1

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. In a heavy roaster pot, brown the short ribs with the onions in the fat or oil. Combine and blend the remaining ingredients. Add to the ribs in the roaster.

Step 2

Cover and bake in a moderately slow oven (325 degrees) until the meat is tender and the sauce is thick. Approximately 1 1/2 hours to 2 hours or until tender. Baste occasionally with the sauce.
