Croswell's Ribs

Note:     How many times have you discarded ribs because you though the strips of meat between
    them weren't worth fooling with? Try this recipe and you'll never reject the ribs again.

Ingredients: 3 lbs. ribs
                  2 diced onions
                  2 tbsp. butter
                  1 1/2 cups canned tomatoes
                  1 1/2 cups celery, diced
                  1 1/2 cups ketchup
                  2 1/2 tbsp. brown sugar
                  4 dashes Tabasco
                  3/4 tsp. dry mustard
                  3 cups beef bouillon
                  1/2 clove garlic, minced
                  salt, pepper

          Rub ribs with garlic clove and place in crock pot. Add enough water or chicken broth to cover ribs, and cook slowly for 4 to 5 hours until meat falls off bone.
          In pan, cook onions in butter until translucent. Add all remaining ingredients except ribs and garlic, and simmer 1 hour.
          Place ribs in baking pan and cover with sauce. Place lid on pan and bake covered for 45 minutes in preheated oven at 325 degrees F. Reserve some sauce for serving at table.
