I used the slow cooker method, (omitting all but the soup mix, water, and of course the ribs, while adjusting it to my liking). I dry-rubbed my ribs with a mixture of onion powder and garlic powder. I also added 1/2 an onion, sliced, and 3 tbsp of Worcestershire sauce. Cook as suggested; when done, add the flour, water, and black pepper mixture, cooking an additional 10 to 15 minutes, to thicken sauce.

very good- used beef broth/stock instead of water- didn't have ginger-added minced garlic- need to thicken gravy more
