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.

4 lbs meaty beef short ribs

1 onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 can (8-oz) tomto sauce
1 tbsp + 2 tsp red wine vinegar
1 tbsp + 1 tsp packed brown sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper

In a mixing bowl combine the onion, garlic, cinnamon, tomato sauce, 1 tablespoon of the vinegar, 1 tablespoon of the brown sugar, the salt and pepper until blended well.

Place the ribs in the crockpot or slow cooker and pour the sauce overall.  Place lid on cooker and cook on low setting for approximately 9 hours.

Remove the ribs to a serving platter.

Skim fat from pot liquid and discard.  Stir the remaining 2 teaspoons of vinegar and 1 teaspoon of brown sugar into the liquid in the pot.  Stir until brown sugar is dissolved.  Pour the sauce over the ribs.
