3 hr 20 min

10 servings

  • 10 beef short ribs (about 5 inches by 2 1/2 inches)
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 1/4 cups Nancy's Quick Fix BBQ Sauce, recipe follows
  • 2 cups beef broth
  • 12 cloves garlic, smashed
  • 1 onion, sliced into 1/2-inch rounds
  • 1 bottle stout beer
  • Nancy's Quick Fix BBQ Sauce:
  • 3 cups chunky medium salsa, such as Pace
  • 1/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons ground cumin
  • 2 tablespoons sweet paprika
  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.

  • Season the beef ribs with salt and pepper and place on a large baking sheet. Roast until the ribs start to brown, about 30 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, mix together Nancy's Quick Fix BBQ Sauce, the broth, garlic, onions and beer in a large Dutch oven and bring to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer for about 30 minutes.

  • Transfer the browned ribs to the Dutch oven meat-side down. Lower the oven temperature to 325 degrees F, cover the pot and transfer it to the oven. Braise the ribs until tender and cooked through, 2 to 2 1/2 hours.

  • Prepare a grill for medium heat.

  • Put the ribs on the grill (reserve the sauce in the pot) and grill, turning occasionally, until caramelized, 8 to 10 minutes. Top with the reserved sauce and serve.

Nancy's Quick Fix BBQ Sauce:
  • Put the salsa, sugar, cumin and paprika in a medium saucepan over medium heat and bring to a simmer. Cook until the sugar is dissolved, 8 to 10 minutes.
