  • 1
    Coat ribs in vegetable oil. In 10-inch skillet, heat remaining oil over medium-high heat. Cook ribs, fattiest side down first, on all sides 2 to 3 minutes on each side, until browned.
  • 2
    In 3 1/2- or 4-quart slow cooker, mix enchilada sauce, taco seasoning mix and cumin. Add ribs to mixture in slow cooker, and turn to coat. Cover; cook on Low heat setting 8 to 10 hours or until meat is very tender.
  • 3
    Transfer ribs to cutting board. Transfer 1/4 cup braising liquid to medium bowl. Remove bones and any pieces of fat and cartilage from ribs, and discard. Shred meat with two forks, and transfer to bowl with reserved liquid. Discard remaining cooking liquid.
  • 4
    Heat boats as directed on package. Divide refried beans among boats. Top with cabbage. Divide shredded beef among boats. Top with queso fresco and cilantro. Serve with lime wedges.
  • Beef short ribs have a piece of cartilage on the outside that doesn’t break down even after hours of slow cooking. Be sure to peel off that piece, and discard before shredding the meat.

Expert Tips

  • For this recipe, ask your butcher for traditional English-style ribs instead of the thinner Korean-style ribs.
