I love a good slow cooker recipe during fall or as I call it “the busy season”. That means the kids are back in school, the work days seem longer, and there are endless events to get to like football games, apple orchards, and lots of family gatherings. Dinner should be extremely easy but delicious right?! Well it absolutely can be by tossing 2 packages of short ribs in the crockpot and pouring a quick sauce over top. I love set it and forget it recipes. Especially when everyone raves how great it is when you barely lifted a finger! I love it. Throw everything in before work in the morning and let this slow cook to perfection up until dinner.
