Slow Cooking Thursday for June 14
Okay, it's still Thursday -- but I am very late getting this posted! Sorry about that -- it's been a busy day.
CROCK POT RIBS
3 to 4 pounds of country-style pork ribs Steak seasoning, lemon pepper or other favorite seasoning to taste 1 cup barbecue sauce
Place ribs in crock pot. Sprinkle liberally with the seasoning of your choice. Lemon pepper is good; Montreal-style steak seasoning is outstanding. Or try one of your own favorites. Cover crock pot. Cook ribs all day on Low, or 4 to 5 hours on High.
30 minutes before you are ready to eat, drain off all the liquid from the crock pot. Spread the barbecue sauce over the ribs. Cover crock pot again and continue to cook for 30 minutes.
This easy recipe produces some of the tastiest ribs you will ever eat. If you use bone-in ribs, the meat will fall off them. Boneless ribs are even better. This has become a favorite meal in our family! Great with potato salad and raw veggies in summer, or with mashed potatoes and coleslaw for a warming winter meal.
I live in scenic northern New England with my handsome husband. We're empty-nesters with a bunch of adorable grandchildren. We love (tent) camping and traveling, but don't get away as often as we'd like to.
