In a large skillet, heat vegetable oil over high heat. Add pork ribs and brown on both sides. Transfer pork ribs to a large slow cooker. Add, carrots, celery, onion, and garlic. In a bowl, stir together the broth, tomato paste, crushed tomatoes and diced tomatoes; add to slow cooker. Stir in Italian Seasoning, salt and pepper.
