Slow Cooker BBQ Short Ribs

Short Ribs are a cut of beef taken from the brisket, chuck, plate, or rib areas of beef cattle. They consist of a short portion of the rib bone, which is overlain by meat which varies in thickness. We normally braise our Short Ribs so we thought we'd shake it up, with homemade BBQ Sauce!
