Crock Pot Al Pastor Short Ribs

Darling man and I like to buy nicely marbled cuts of meat in bulk. This pushes me to get creative with preparation and come up with different recipes. This week I made slow cooked Al Pastor short ribs layered with fresh pineapple, cumin, chipotle peppers, onions and garlic. I let them slow cook for 6 hours and by the time they were ready, we were in short rib nirvana!
