    I got this recipe from Quick Cooking magazine. DH loves it, and it is SO simple to put together from stuff I always have in the pantry.

    1. 1
      If you have time, brown the ribs in a little oil. If not, just throw them in the crockpot.
    2. 2
      Put all the rest of the ingredients except the cornstarch and 1 Tbsp cold water in the crockpot too.
    3. 3
      Mix just to combine and coat the ribs.
    4. 4
      Cover and cook on low for 4-5 hours or until meat is tender.
    5. 5
      I have left it for as long as 8 hours and they came out fine. If you leave them in for a long time, just check to see if it needs any water now and then.
    6. 6
      Before serving, combine the cornstarch and cold water until smooth.
    7. 7
      Gradually stir into cooking juices to make gravy.
    8. 8
      Cover and cook 10-15 more minutes until thickened.

      Superb! Very flavorful barbecue type sauce. I used boneless ribs, left out the tomato, subbed garlic salt (1 t was enough), and forgot the cornstarch. The meat was tender after 5 hours, but I think the longer the better.

      I haven't made this specific recipe, but it is very similar to how I prepare my short ribs. The only changes are that I add some chipotles in adobo for spice and, while making the gravy, grill the ribs so that they get a nice crispy outer layer. Cooking them first in the crockpot makes them so tender, it's amazing.
