A slow-cooked, fall-off-the-bone delicious way to prepare short ribs.


  • 3-4 lbs. beef short ribs
  • 1 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tsp. liquid smoke
  • 2 Tbsp. avocado oil
  • 2-3 Tbsp. bbq sauce


  • 2 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 2 1/2 tsp. smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp. mustard powder
  • 3/4 tsp. thyme
  • 3/4 tsp. curry powder
  • 3/4 tsp. white pepper
  • 1 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. coconut sugar



  1. Cover ribs with plenty of water and add apple cider vinegar. Allow to soak for 20-30 minutes.
  2. Drain, rinse, and pat ribs completely dry.


  1. Add ribs to a Ziploc bag or sealable container. Add oil and liquid smoke and mix until well distributed.
  2. Coat ribs evenly in spice mixture, reserving 2 Tbsp. for later.
  3. Allow to sit for 30 minutes to an hour at room temperature. If longer, cover and put in the fridge until ready to cook.


  1. Once ribs are ready to cook, preheat oven to 250F.
  2. Place ribs on a baking sheet lined with foil. Sprinkle the remaining spices evenly over both sides of the ribs. Cover with another piece of foil, wrapping tightly to keep in the steam.
  3. Bake for 4-4 1/2 hours, checking once or twice. Ribs should be falling off the bone.
  4. Once ribs are cooked, drain juices. Liberally brush on bbq sauce, and broil on low for 3-4 minutes, until bbq sauce is sticky. Remove from oven and serve.
