Try Caroline Manzo's Short Rib Sliders Recipe from Grilling with the Stars.

To make the sliders, begin with Caroline’s recipe for short ribs, which was actually originated by her husband, Albert. First, make a sauce of minced garlic, tomato paste, red wine, and beef broth. Let it reduce over a flame. Then, add the sauce to beef short ribs, then add celery, onions, and carrot. Cover the beef and let it cook down for 3 hours on the grill or in the oven.


When the short ribs are done cooking, you can then get started on the barbecue sauce, and finally, assemble your sliders!


  • 1 cup Water
  • 1/2 cup Tomato Paste
  • 1 1/4 cup Sugar
  • 1/2 cup Molasses
  • 1 cup White Vinegar
  • 1 1/2 tbsp. Salt
  • 1 1/2 tbsp. Corn Starch
  • 2 tsp. Smoke Flavor
  • 2 tsp. Worcestershire’s Sauce
  • 1/4 tsp. Onion Powder
  • 1/4 tsp. Garlic Powder


  1. Combine the barbecue sauce ingredients in a saucepan and simmer over medium heat for about 20 minutes.
  2. Take your cooked short ribs and begin shredding the meat into a bowl. When the barbecue sauce is done, add it to the bowl of shredded meat and mix well.
  3. Your meat is done, so now all that’s left is to build your slider. Caroline likes to top her sandwich with coleslaw and a pickle. Voila! You’re ready to eat.
