    Wonderful sauce & so tasty with short ribs. I would not hesitate to use with chuck roast, pot roast, or London Broil strips either. To prevent overcooking the meat & causing it to fall apart, begin testing meat tenderness for fork tender after 6-7 hours on low in the slow cooker. Sauce goes well with mashed potatoes or rice as the starch. This recipe is similar to Miss Nezz's recipe #32147 which has been reviewed 174 times. This one deserves MORE attention... or to have much of what those reviews contain also apply to this recipe.<br/><br/>Do not skip the skillet browning of the meat before slow-cooker time. A significant flavor dimension will be lost. I added a tablespoon of oil to the butter to allow for browning at a higher heat than butter alone. While the meat browned, I mixed all the other ingredients except the onion in 4-cup measuring pitcher. After the meat had browned, I added the onion for a couple of minutes until translucent, then added the liquid blend to deglaze the skillet. Brought the sauce to a boil while stirring and then reduced to a simmer for about 3 minutes before adding to the slow-cooker.<br/><br/>This IS comfort food at its finest for me... reminds me so much of short ribs my dad made way back when short ribs were actually cheaper than chuck roast and ground beef... short ribs in my area seem to run about $5 per pound these days! My wife did not grow up on this as comfort food, but she also enjoyed these ribs and looks forward to having "something beef" done this way again on a regular basis. This is a nice alternative to blander pot roast! Thanks for a great recipe, Miss Inez!

    I made these last night and they were great. This is definately to be made when you have time. This not for those mornings when your in a hurry to get out the door. My house smelled wonderful when I got home. Thanks so much for posting I'll be making these again for sure!

    This was outstanding! I used really spicy hot sauce and it had such a great kick to it. I ended up using regular white vinegar instead of cider vinegar, and tomato sauce instead of ketchup. I cooked this on high for about 3-4 hours on high, but also added a few hours on low, which were probably not needed since I used really thin ribs and they shredded quite a bit. Still, it was so tasty and the sauce was just perfect. I'm looking forward to making this again.
