Simple Crock Pot Short Ribs

READY IN: 8hrs 5mins
Recipe by Sherri at the Beach

I'm too busy to brown ribs before crock potting so I just skim the fat off after they have cooked. This is so simple and delicious. Throw it together and then serve with brown rice for a simple hearty meal.

The whole family loved it. I followed the recipe to a tee. I will make it again. Everybody should try it. It is VERY simple, and tasty.

Ingredients Nutrition
