Add 3 diced onions and 1 diced celery rib, and pour in 1 cup of beef stock and 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce. Season with salt, pepper and fresh herbs, to taste. Stir, then cover the Crock-Pot, and cook for high for four to five hours.

To make spare ribs, boil 2 pounds of spare ribs for 15 minutes. Add the ribs to the Crock-Pot, along with 1 can tomato soup, 2 tablespoons soy sauce, and 1 tablespoon each of brown sugar and Worcestershire sauce.
