So excited about this recipe, its a bit of a challenge with the flavors Em trying out..But Im hoping for the best! I loved the Marmalade Sesame Orange Chicken I made in the crock pot, so I was trying to think what else I could do with these preserves I found. So I came across the same brand again..and it was in Apricot..For some reason BBQ short ribs came to mind, and then I thought why not glaze them in the Apricot preserves and then serve BBQ sauce on the side?! So here it is!

3 lbs of beef short ribs

2 small onions sliced thick

1 tbsp molasses

1/4 red wine vinegar

1/4 cup water

1 tbsp cornstarch ( set aside for later)

salt and pepper

Season short ribs with salt and pepper, sprinkle lightly with flour. Brown in pan on med high with 2 tbsp extra light olive oil.  Place onions in the bottom of the crock pit, add molasses, red wine vinegar and 1/4 cup water. Place short ribs on top of the onions. Pour Apricot preserves all over short ribs. Cover and set on low for 6 hours.
