Recipe for Short Ribs in a Slow Cooker

Short ribs are one of those delicious dish that I don't get to make a lot.  Partly because my family and I are not heavy meat eaters.  But every once in awhile, I get the craving, so I scoured the Internet for a recipe. I found one. And it's smoky and tangy, just as I like them but it's cooked from a slow cooker.
