Jerked Rubbed Short-Ribs

Easy and super delicious short ribs jerked recipe!
Jump to Recipe

Love me tender short ribs seasoned with a homemade jerk spice recipe. The jerk spice has a faint hint of curry powder. This is a spice that you will use over and over again on all kinds of meat or fish.

I used boneless short ribs but bone-in is also a great substitution. The boneless meat has less fat. The beer can be substituted – use beef broth: the liquid helps to keep the meat moist. Slow bake until super fall apart tender. This is a recipe you will make over and over again. I served this with my easy and delicious homemade BBQ Sauce.

I hope you will make this recipe and enjoy it as much as we do. Happy Cooking!
