What do you spritz with? We use apple juice, as we get the best results from it. However, you can use water or apple cider vinegar; it’s really up to you!

Step 6: Spritz every 30-40 minutes


Step 7: Remove the short ribs when they reach an internal temperature of 160 - 165f. It’s time to wrap. Using foil, place a bed of butter and then place the short ribs face down, top up with beef stock and wrap tight.
