  • Prep Time 10 min
  • Cook Time 8 hr

Ingredients (7)

For safe meat preparation, reference the USDA website.

Steps (4)

  1. 1
    Place short ribs in a Glad® zipper bag and sprinkle with the Hidden Valley® Original Ranch® Seasoning & Salad Dressing Mix Shaker. Seal and toss until the short ribs are evenly coated.
  2. 2
    In a large pot or Dutch oven, heat the olive oil until very hot but not smoking. Brown the short ribs on all sides (you may need to do this in two batches), about 10-12 minutes total.
  3. 3
    Transfer to a slow cooker. Nestle the onions in and around the short ribs. Mix the red wine and mustard together and pour over the top. Cover the slow cooker.
  4. 4
    Cook on high for 4 hours or on low for 8 hours. Skim as much fat as possible from the top. Season with salt and pepper. Serve over noodles, rice or potatoes.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It was easy to cook, but the taste was ok This was my first time cooking spare ribs. The meat was tender but I should’ve cut the big fat portions from the raw meat prior to searing.
