  1. Rub short ribs with Seasoned Salt. Place in 3-quart or larger slow cooker with onions, carrots and celery.
  2. Combine beef broth with ¾ cup Smoky Bacon BBQ Sauce. Pour over ribs; add enough water to almost cover ribs, about 2 cups. Cook on LOW 6-8 hours.
  3. Remove ribs from slow cooker. Combine ½ cup cooking liquid with remaining Smoky Bacon BBQ Sauce; dip ribs in sauce and serve.

Makes 6 servings.

Serve with roasted carrots and potatoes.

Make Ahead & Freeze: Prepare step 1 and place in a gallon freezer bag. Seal well, label and freeze. Thaw completely. Place in slow cooker and continue with step 2.

Did You Know: Beef short ribs can be cut three different ways. Boneless, English-style (the rib is cut parallel to the bone with a thick cut of meat on each bone) and Flaken-style (the ribs are cut across the bone with 3-4 bones in each piece).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Winner! First time I ever cooked short ribs, and I will be fixing them again, these were delicious! We just love the flavor of the Smoky Bacon BBQ Sauce, it's a staple in my pantry for sure. Next time I fix this, I think I'll throw in some potatoes for a complete crock pot meal.
