Carefully remove beef from cooker; cover to keep warm. Transfer sauce to a large frying pan; bring to the boil. Boil, skimming fat from surface, for about 10 minutes or until sauce reduces to 2 cups.

Short ribs, although they’re not necessarily that short, are sections of beef ribs, not pork, usually taken from the second to the 10th rib. Each `slab’ can contain from 2 to 8 ribs. The meat is full of flavour, but is very tough, so the ribs are best braised slowly over low heat, making them perfect for cooking in a slow cooker.
