Shhh, it's a secret. But since you're here, I guess we'll let you into the flavor vault. Chili sauce, root beer, and onions form a delectable braising sauce for beef short ribs. Whip some up for friends, and they'll be begging for the secret combination.

Ingredients

Traeger Chili Barbecue Sauce1 bottle
High-Quality Root Beer Soda, such as Dr. Brown's or Hane's, plus more as needed1 cup
Fresh Thyme Leaves, chopped1 Tbsp.
Sweet Onion, thinly sliced into rings1 large
Bone-In Short Ribs, or 2-1/2 lbs of Boneless Short Ribs3 - 4 lbs.
Saltas needed
Black Pepper, Freshly Groundas needed

Preparation

In a medium bowl, combine the Chili Barbecue Sauce, root beer, and thyme leaves.

Arrange the onions evenly in the bottom of a 9" x 13" pan.

Season the short ribs on all sides with salt and pepper. Lay in a single layer on top of the onions.

Pour the chili-root beer sauce evenly over the ribs. Cover the pan tightly with aluminum foil.

When ready to cook, start the Traeger grill on Smoke with the lid open until the fire is established (4 to 5 minutes). Set the temperature to 300F and preheat, lid closed, for 10 to 15 minutes.

Place the pan of ribs on the grill grate; cook for 2 to 3 hours, or until the ribs are tender but not falling off the bone.

Add a bit more root beer to the pan if the dish does not seem as saucy as you would like.

Serve immediately with polenta or mashed potatoes.
