Cut beef into 1-rib pieces, trimming off fat. Season with 1/4 tsp (1 mL) each of the salt and pepper. Arrange on foil-lined baking sheet; broil, turning once, until well browned, 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer to slow cooker.

In large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp. Drain on paper towel–lined plate.

Drain fat from skillet. Add onion, garlic, carrot, thyme and remaining salt and pepper; cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until onion is softened, about 5 minutes. Add to slow cooker along with bacon.

In skillet, whisk together sherry, broth and tomato paste; bring to boil, scraping up browned bits. Stir into slow cooker. Cover and cook on low until meat is tender, 5 to 6 hours. Transfer ribs to serving dish; keep warm.

Skim fat from liquid. Whisk flour with 1/4 cup (60 mL) water; whisk into liquid. Cover and cook on high until thickened, 8 to 10 minutes. Pour over ribs. Sprinkle with green onion.
