This is a delicious German recipe that almost has a "barbecue" flavor to it when finished.
1 – 1 ½ lbs Country style beef ribs, trimmed and cut into cubes
2 tablespoons flour
1/2 teaspoon celery salt
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 can diced tomatoes
1 cup thinly sliced carrots
2 medium potatoes, cut into chunks
1/4 cup sherry
1/4 cup dark molasses
1/4 cup beef broth
Place beef in slow cooker. In a bowl combine flour, celery salt, garlic powder, ground ginger, and pepper; sprinkle over beef. In another bowl, combine tomatoes, carrots, sherry, molasses, and water; pour over beef.
Cook on high for three hours. Add potatoes and cook one hour more, or til potatoes are tender.
Serve over buttered egg noodles with a dollop of sour cream, or your favorite pasta.
