I am going to cook short ribs in a crock pot, the recipe calls for 8 hours but I won’t be home for at least 10. I was thinking the extra time it has to cook, the more tender it will get or would it dry out? It will be in liquids obviously while it is in the crock pot.
Well, those two hours can make a difference. The meat will get mushier and mushier rather than more tender. If there’s some pieces of meat exposed, that can dry out.
Any way to set your crock pot on a timer?
If you have ever tasted really good ribs then you already know the best way to cook them is to braise them in the oven using fairly low heat.
