Just from the smells coming from the slow cooker, I know that the beef short ribs will be delicious.

|Spread the tomatoes to cover the onions and meat.|
2 to 3 pounds of boneless short ribs
1 medium onion. chopped
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1-2 tbsp oil
6 tomatoes, pureed
salt and pepper
Using a large heavy frying pan, add the oil and heat to medium high heat. If the strips of short ribs are long, cut them in half and trim any fat that you don't want. Place the beef short ribs in the pan, add some salt and pepper and cook each side for four to five minutes. I reduced the heat to medium. I added salt and pepper to each side. Place the short ribs into the bottom of the slow cooker.
From frying the short ribs there should be enough fat to sauté the onions. Saute the onions for a few minutes on medium heat in the frying pan and watch them so that they don't get too brown and the edges burn. I moved them around while sautéing them with a spoon. Reduce the heat if the onions are getting too brown. Remove the onions from the frying pan and add them to the slow cooker. Add the garlic to the slow cooker spreading it over the onions. Add the pureed tomatoes to the slow cooker and spread them over the onions and meat. Place the lid on the slow cooker.
Cook on low heat for 6 to 8 hours. Serves 4 to 6.
