(no subject)

Cooked beef short-ribs yesterday in the slow-cooker, it was my first attempt at ribs and I made it through with some e-mailed pointers from eclectician.
- Browned them in a pan, deglazed with pumpkin-beer and wine, threw them in the slow-cooker with onions/leeks/carrots/parsnips/dried apricots/sage/smoked paprika, let them go on low all day.

They came out pretty good, and both prosicated and I enjoyed them, but I wasn't satisfied with it. The texture was good, but I don't think I was focused enough with the additions I made.

Obviously more experimentation is in order.
I miss cooking, I anticipate a lot of it in my near future now that we have some semblance of a kitchen again.
