Short ribs are delicious. Yet they are a “tough cut” of meat. But the more collagen, the tougher the meat. And beef short ribs contain bucket loads of collagen. They also contain fat, which makes slow-cooked beef short ribs succulent and healthy. Their fat-to-protein ratio is about 3:5 based in grams.




  • 1.5 lb (approximately) beef short ribs with bone-in







  • Himalayan salt to taste
  • Beef bone broth (to cover short ribs in slow cooker)
  • Optional: “4505 Cracklins” to add to bone broth from slow cooker to make a soup




  • Generously salt short ribs
  • Place ribs into slow cooker
  • Cover short ribs with beef bone broth
  • Slow cook at medium temperature for 8 hours
  • Plate and devour.
  • In addition, I put some “4505 Cracklins” in a soup bowl, add some of the bone broth from the slow cooker, and have a fantastic bowl of soup with my short ribs
