Tips for the best beef riblets before starting

  • For best results, slice the ribs into riblets before cooking. You can easily fit more into the crockpot and all the meat will touch the broth that you are using to cook the beef in.
  • For the perfect tenderness the ribs should reach an internal temperature of 200F or close in that range. A meat thermometer is perfect to see this.

Making the beef riblets in the crockpot

  1. To start, remove the beef ribs from the package and pat them dry if needed. Then, try to evenly slice the ribs between the bone. The standard crockpot should be able to fit a full rack of sliced beef riblets with no problem. You may have to arrange them around to make them fit.
  2. In the bottom of the crockpot add beef broth, soy sauce and liquid smoke. Swirl them around with a spoon to make sure it’s mixed.
  3. Next in a bowl combine the seasoning mix together. Season the ribs generously with the seasoning.
  4. Place the riblets into the crockpot. Having the riblets cut side down will guarantee each riblet is touching the broth. Cover the crockpot and cook on high for 3 hours or low for 6 hours.
  5. After that time, remove the ribs from the crockpot. Sauce them and allow them to cool a bit while you preheat the oven to 400F.
  6. After waiting at least 15 minutes, place the sauced ribs in the oven for 15 minutes. The sauce will come out sticky and the riblets are ready to serve.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

How do you tenderize beef riblets?

Low and slow is the best method. That is why the crockpot is perfect. If cooked at a high heat you can easily dry these ribs out due to the fat melting. But, if cooked slow enough you can maintain the fat in the ribs and give the collagen long enough to break down and make them tender.

Can you cook ribs too long in the crockpot?

Yes and it is very easy to do. Fall of the bone ribs aren’t really suppose to fall from the bone. The meat should be tender and easily seperate from the bone. If the meat is falling apart this can make the meat have a slightly mushy texture. The 190-200F mark is great for pork riblets and beef.
