    Papa D 1946-2012's Note:

    Adapted from a recipe by Fabio Viviani. Reducing the quart of beef stock to 1 1/2 cups is not included in prep time and a must for a good depth of flavor. A good stout beer is also a must for this recipe, I use Guinness extra stout. Boneless or bone on ribs can be used for this recipe. I have stated 8 hours for cooking time but that will depend on your crock pot, with mine the bone on ribs were almost done at the 6 hour mark so I turned the warm cycle on and let simmer for 2 more hours, they were perfect.

      This was great. I used the extra seasoned flour from dredging the meat. mixed with some juices from the crockpot and stirred back into the whole thing to make a nice gravy. I put the meat on a bed of sliced carrots and celery instead of the onion.

      Wow Papa D, you sure did come up with some Goldies. We made these using spare ribs as short ribs are hard to get here. Also cooked in a pressure cooker for about 1.5 hours. The meat fell off the bone and the flavour was amazing. We served up on mash. Side note, leftover liquid turned into AMAZING stock (I didn't end up making the slurry). Yum.
