  • Beef Short Ribs

  • Water


  • Slow Cooker

  1. Add two cups of water to the slow cooker. 
  2. Add beef short ribs to the slow cooker and cover with barbecue sauce.
  3. Slow cook on high for 4 hours.
  4. Cut the top 1/4 off the jalapeños and scrape the seeds. 
  5. To reduce the heat of the jalapeños place them in an ice bath for 5 minutes. Remove and towel dry.
  6. Spread cream cheese on the inside of the jalapeños. 
  7. When the short ribs are done, remove from the slow cooker and shred with two forks. Add additional barbecue sauce to taste.
