If you enjoy a glaze-like sauce, remove the lid to the crockpot when the ribs are done. Turn the heat to high (if it isn't already) and simmer until thickened.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine oil, ginger, curry paste, allspice, salt and pepper in a small bowl to make a paste. Rub on ribs.
  2. Put ribs, cinnamon, onion & broth into a 4 1/2 quart or larger crockpot. Cover and cook until beef is tender, 6 to 7 hours on low or 3 1/2 to 4 hours on high. Skim excess fat from broth. Sprinkle with cilantro and serve.

This was very good. We really enjoyed it. I made this with Sauteed Garlic Broccoli - Spicy. I couldn't get bone-in short ribs, only boneless. It was still good. I forgot the cinnamon sticks at the store. I think it was fine without. Thank you Ang11002 for posting this recipe.

I had never made short ribs before and was looking for a simple recipe. This was perfect! The rub came together quickly and they cooked in the slow cooker on low all day. I served over rice and poured the sauce from the ribs over the top (after I tried to skim off as much fat as possible).

This is a really great recipe if you are looking for something with a fast, easy preparation and that cooks all day in the crockpot. The only addition that I made was to brown the ribs in a frying pan before rubbing them with the paste. The taste is flavorful, but if you like spicy foods I would recommend kicking it up a notch by adding some crushed red chili pepper flakes to taste.
