Step 1

Heat olive oil over medium-high heat in a large skillet. Brown the ribs well on both sides, turning them a few times, about 10 minutes total. Brown them in batches if necessary, to avoid crowding them in the pot.

Step 2

Transfer ribs to the liner of your crockpot.

Step 3

Reduce heat under skillet to medium. Add onion, carrot and celery to skillet and cook for 5 to 6 minutes, stirring frequently to avoid burning. Stir in garlic, rosemary and paprika and cook until fragrant, about 45 seconds. Add wine, scraping up any brown bits.

Step 4

Pour wine and onion mixture and tomatoes and their juices over the ribs, working them in around the meat with a wooden spoon.

Step 5

Tuck the bay leaf into the tomatoes. Cover the pot and cook on low for 4-6 hours (depending on how hot your crockpot runs).

Step 6

Mix cornstarch and water in a small bowl and pour into crockpot, stirring it into the juices. Let juice thicken a bit and then serve ribs with sauce.

Fabulous flavour! I cut the meat back to 4 large ribs but kept the sauce and veggies the same - in fact I added one extra carrot. Cooked for 4 1/2 hours on low. This will be made again.
