Welcome to this slow cooker/crockpot blog. I believe slow cookers are the best thing to happen to modern day cooks. I used mine often when I worked outside the home and continue to do so even in retirement. It is so nice to put food on and forget about it. Slow cookers also allow us to cook many things we would normally have to use the oven for; what a relief in hot Texas weather! Some of these recipes are mine, many are ones I have collected over the years.

3 lbs beef short ribs
1 cup chopped onion
2 medium carrots, chopped
1 celery stalk, chopped
2 3/4 cups marinara sauce
1 3/4 cups beef stock

Cut the short ribs into individual rib pieces.

Spray a 12-inch nonstick skillet with nonstick cooking spray.  Brown ribs on all sides.

Place the onion, carrots, and celery in the bottom of a 5-quart crockpot or slow cooker; top with the ribs.  Blend the marinara sauce and the beef stock together; pour over the ribs and vegetables.

Place lid on cooker and cook on low 7 to 8 hours or until the ribs are fork tender.  If cooking on high setting, cook for 3 1/2 to 4 hours.
Yield: 4 servings
