Slow-Cooked Pork Ribs with Mushrooms, Fino, and Rosemary

This is an earthy pork rib dish that would be perfect for fall. I rehydrated some chanterelles from the local mushroom shop, but I'm sure it would be even better with fresh wild mushrooms. I changed the method to use the slow-cooker to make this a weeknight meal, but you could also simmer this dish for a couple of hours on the stove as originally called for.
