can this be done in a crock pot? sounds good!

Yes...almost the same recipe except: Salt and pepper ribs, dredge in 2 Tbs of flour, brown on all sides. Put everything in crock pot (omit the water and barley) and add 1 10 3/4 oz Golden Mushroom soup. Cut back on the 2 Tsp of salt. Add 2Tbs corn starch diluted with 2Tbs water about 1 hour before done. Cook 5 hrs high, But better 8-9 hours low.
