Easy Crockpot Short Ribs

My daughter and I have been so busy working on this website that neither one of us have much time to think about what to cook for dinner. What we needed were some good recipes that we could start in the morning in the slow cooker and serve when our husbands got home from work.

Now I am very particular in what I cook in the slow cooker as some cuisines, such as Asian, just don’t work as well and I would rather stir fry anyway. However this recipe for boneless short ribs is melt-in-your-mouth delicious and  just the right type of dish for a slow cooker. The cooker tenderizes the meat and gives it incredible flavor. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did. I just wish I had made double the recipe as it is that good!
