Ribs make such a delicious dish. Short ribs are some of Mawmaw’s favorite. Beef short ribs are larger and usually more tender and meatier than their pork counterpart, pork spare ribs. Short ribs are cut from the rib and plate primals and a small corner of the square-cut chuck. A full slab of short ribs is typically about 10 inches square, ranges from 3-5 inches thick. This recipe is one easy and good way to cook ribs.

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 3/4 cup ketchup
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 2 tsp vinegar
  • salt, black pepper, red pepper
