Grilled Short Ribs

Grilled Short Ribs

Short ribs are tricky because they need A LOT of cooking time to break down into wonderful bits of meat.  Grilling alone will not get the job done. You will need to cook them further in a crockpot, oven or stovetop. Oh but grilling them first delivers a delicious flavor that can’t compare.

Usually we grill steaks on our O Grill but my son is addicted to short ribs and picked up those instead of steaks.  

A lot of people get nervous about cooking short ribs. They are super easy!  Usually, I buy them bone-in but for camping, no bones are easier.

Use tons of seasoning!

Transfer to Crock Pot or Oven to finish cooking.

Crockpot for 3 hours

By adding a small amount of beef broth, the grill marks remain during cooking.

Seriously Yummy!

Easy to serve with a salad and mashed potatoes or grilled polenta. I did all three. I did cheat and bought the polenta at the grocery store in one of those “rolls.”

I had a loaf of bread that I cut in half, spread butter and sprinkled garlic seasoning. Grilled it for two minutes and it was delicious!

The Next Day, my son was starving and decided to make up a special dinner with leftovers: Short Ribs, Grilled Chicken and Fettuccine Alfredo.

With ease, well seasoned Grilled Short Ribs can be the best meal at the Campground. It will definitely have your camping neighbors walking by to see where that wonderful smell is coming from. Don't be surprised if they invite themselves to dinner!

 

Short Ribs

Yields8 Servings
Prep Time5 minsCook Time3 hrs 40 minsTotal Time3 hrs 45 mins

 2 ½ lbs Short Ribs (preferably bone out)
 5 tbsp Seasoning (your favorite). We used Lawry's, Garlic and Old Bay.
 1 tsp Salt and Pepper, to taste
 6 fl oz Beef Stock or Water

1

Put your short ribs on a platter.

2

Season the heck out of them on both sides. Pick whatever seasoning suits you. In our home, it's Salt, Pepper, Garlic, Lawry's and Old Bay. You can't go wrong here but make sure to use A LOT of seasoning.

3

On a High Heat Grill, lay the short ribs down and let them sit for at least 15 minutes per side. They will not burn. You want a super good sear with those beautiful grill marks.

4

After grilling each side at least 15 minutes, check to see if there are any ungrilled "spots." If so, grill those spots. You want a full sear everywhere on these short ribs.

5

Let the short ribs sit, off your grill and on your platter, for 15 minutes. You want them to settle down before transferring them to the next pot.

6

Transfer the ribs to a crockpot or oven, adding one cup of beef broth, to finish the cooking.

7

Crock Pot, high heat, for 3 hours. Do not turn. Just let them sit and cook. Times vary per individual user's equipment.

 Serve with mashed potatoes unless you are adventurous enough to make polenta. I made our mashed potatoes in a crockpot.
