This was not a bad flavor but just too much grease for our family. No matter how much you brown them, that many bone-in beef ribs ends up in too much fat after 6 to 8 hours in a crockpot. Plus I am a lazy cook...I don't want to put something in my crockpot that I have to spend all of that time browning on top my stove first.
