Slow-Cooked Short Ribs

Slow-Cooked Short Ribs

"Smothered in a mouth-watering barbecue sauce, these meaty ribs are a popular entree wherever I serve them. The recipe is great for a busy cook - after everything is combined, the slow cooker does all the work. -Pam Halfhill, Medina, Ohio"

Sickeningly sweet. After 5-1/2 hrs. on low it was mush. Why 1/2 cup of sugar? Complete waste of good ingredients unless you like candied beef!
