Ingredients

  • 3
    pounds beef short ribs, cut into rib sections
  • 1/2
    teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 12
    small whole red potatoes
  • 1 1/2
    cups baby-cut carrots
  • 1
    can (10.75 ounces) condensed cream of celery soup
  • 1/2
    cup chili sauce
  • 2
    tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2
    teaspoon garlic pepper
  • 1 1/2
    cups frozen cut green beans (from 1-pound bag), thawed

Steps

  • 1
    Spray 5- to 6-quart slow cooker and 12-inch nonstick skillet with cooking spray. Sprinkle ribs with seasoned salt. Cook ribs in skillet over medium-high heat 6 to 8 minutes, turning occasionally, until well browned.
  • 2
    Remove ribs from skillet with fork or tongs; place in cooker. Add potatoes and carrots. Mix soup, chili sauce, Worcestershire sauce and garlic pepper in small bowl; pour over ribs and vegetables.
  • 3
    Cover and cook on Low heat setting 7 to 9 hours.
  • 4
    Skim and discard fat if desired. Stir in green beans. Increase heat setting to High. Cover and cook 10 to 15 minutes or until beans are tender.

  • Browning the short ribs before slow cooking gives the dish a rich, savory flavor and removes some of the fat.
  • This is a terrific meal-in-one, but some hearty bread and sliced fresh pears are easy additions.
  • Short ribs are trimmed from narrow beef rib and short plate sections. They’re tasty but tough, so slow cooking is great for tenderizing them.
