Slow Cooker Short Ribs

I don't usually post recipes, but these turned out so well, I just had to share. The photo isn't the best, even edited, but these ribs taste AMAZING . . . if I do say so myself.

·         1 tsp salt
·         ½ tsp black pepper
·         2-3 lbs beef short ribs 
·         1 Tb bacon grease
·         1 onion, chopped
·         ¾ cup red wine
·         1 cup apple cider vinegar
·          cup honey
·         1 tsp. Tabasco
·         1 jar (7 oz.) tomato paste
·         ¾ cup beef stock
·         ¼ cup GF Worcestershire sauce
·         ¼ cup Coconut Aminos
·         1 tsp chili powder
·         3 cloves of garlic, minced
Season short ribs with s & p
Brown in a hot pan w/bacon grease
Remove ribs to slow cooker
sauté 1 chopped onion
add remaining ingredients to pan and bring to a boil
pour over ribs
Cook on low for 8-10 hours or if short on time like I was, on high for 2 hours, then low for 4 hours.

Give them a try and let me know what you think!

Instant Pot modification:
set IP to sauté
brown ribs in IP with bacon grease
remove ribs
sauté onion until soft
add remaining ingredients and bring to a bubble
add ribs back to IP
Turn IP off sauté and set manual for 45 minutes

The sauce thickened so beautifully! We're going to use it to make Sloppy Joes.
