Because short ribs are fatty, consider using one of two classic methods for skimming off the fat and reducing the liquid. Either pour the liquid into a separator and boil the non-fatty part of liquid over high heat on the stove, or refrigerate the sauce until the fat hardens and then remove it. Either way, if the solids are removed from the slow cooker for a long period of time, or you refrigerate them, it is best to reheat the whole dish in a conventional pan on top of the stove.
