Crock Pot Boneless Beef Short Ribs with Lexington BBQ Slaw

I don’t typically make meals in the crock pot in the summer. We grill a lot, but I just might have to start using the crock pot more often. The house smelled delicious when I walked in the door and 20 minutes later we were eating.

In the crock pot place beef short ribs with

8oz tomato sauce

I have a concentrated chili pepper in a tube I used 2T, you could also use chili sauce

pinch of red pepper flakes

2T honey

1 Cup beef broth

Turn on High for 6 hours


When we were in North Carolina,

Lexington to be specific we had a BBQ Slaw that was delicious. It’s not your typical white coleslaw and since you know I don’t prefer mayonnaise, making a cole slaw that has a different base sounded really good to me, I looked it up and Bobbie Flay had the recipe posted so I gave it a try. My husband LOVED it, it’s nice and spicy. Cayenne pepper, ketchup, and vinegar is the base, with a touch of sugar salt and pepper.

Crock Pot Boneless Beef Short Ribs with Lexington BBQ Slaw


  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 2 teaspoons black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vinegar
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 2 cups cabbage chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  • Mix all the ingredients together and refrigerate for an hour.


I pressed Basmati rice into small heart shaped tins and drizzled a touch of BBQ sauce on top, alongside some roasted corn I cut off the cob. We enjoyed a great dinner.

Do you use a crock pot in the summer, or mainly in the winter. If you can’t tend to the grill, the crock pot is a great alternative.
