This is a fantastic change of pace from a typical slow cooker stew. Its combination of flavors—short ribs, rum and fruit— makes it feel like an exotic Caribbean dish. Make sure to leave the mangoes and pineapple on top of the beef, instead of stirring them in, so that their color will stay bright yellow. When removing the mixture from the slow cooker, take out the fruit first and place in a separate bowl from the meat to avoid coating them with the with brown sauce. I like to also serve it with rice.—Loanne Chiu, Fort Worth, Texas
