(Correct answer: Yes)
From this cookbook, The Easiest Beef Short Ribs
1 tablespoon unsalted butter or olive oil
1 medium onion, finely chopped
3/4 cup ketchup
1/4 cup soy sauce
3 tablespoons cider vinegar
3 tablespoons brown sugar
3 to 4 pounds beef short ribs
1. In a small skillet, heat the butter over medium heat until melted, then cook the onion, stirring until softened and golden, about 5 minutes. Add the ketchup, soy sauce, vinegar, and brown sugar, stir until smooth, and heat for 5 minutes.
2. While making the sauce, place the short ribs on a broiler pan and broil until well browned. Arrange the ribs in the slow cooker. Pour over the sauce, distributing the onions over all the ribs. Cover and cook on low until dender and the meat starts to separate from the bone, 7 to 8 hours.
3. Transfer the ribs to a platter. Let the sauce cool a bit, then spoon the liquid fat off the surface and discard. Pour the sauce over the ribs and serve immediately.
I made this recipe on Sunday, froze most of it and had some of it for dinner last night and it was delicious. Based on the ingredients, I thought the sauce would be more barbeque-y, but it's actually more pot-roast-y. Totally, totally delicious and super simple.
