Beef Ribs in Raspberry Chipotle Sauce

Submitted by: ANNE-ELIZ

Introduction

The original version of this recipe used country style pork ribs and was quite delicious, but I decided to try it with beef instead, because a number of our friends have dietary restrictions regarding pork.

Both the original and this recipe are made in a slow cooker.

It could be modified to be made either on the stovetop or in the oven but would probably still take a couple of hours. (low and slow cooking is the key to tenderness and flavor in this braised dish)

  • Flavor was pretty good, if a little bit too "vinegar-y" -- I used cider vinegar, which is of course quite different from apple cider. Nutritional info is way off; did a recipe makeover to sub sugar-free preserves, and saw 4 oz of beef listed instead of 4 lbs; corrected calories per serving was 531! - 6/26/12

    After I saw your comment, I went to the makeover button and saw the same thing- 4 oz. for the beef rib amount. I can't believe that I didn't see that; I clearly had 4 lbs. in the ingredients list on the bottom. I've now made the correction within the recipe itself.
