Sunday I got out my slow cooker (aka crockpot) and dusted it off - literally. It was dusty. I don't use it much, but it's kind of a neat thing to have. Much more fuel effecient than slow cooking something in the oven for 6 hours. I had picked up some short ribs and thought I'd try them in the crockpot. So, Sunday morning I browned the ribs, then added them to the crockpot with some stewed tomatoes (from a can of course), a Heineken, some fresh diced onion, thyme, bay leaves and salt & pepper. Very simple. Lid on, set for 6 hours. Dinner is waiting for you at the end of the day :)
