Everyone knows the slow cooker is a simple way to get meals on the table with less effort. It is a good gadget to use for those nights when you’re too tired to cook. But what do you do when the recipe says 4 to 6 hours and you are gone 8-10 hours?
Here’s my recipe for Slow Cooker Pork Ribs along with some tips if you need to start them super early in the morning.
2 lbs Pork Ribs (I like boneless country ribs)
1 Tbsp. McCormick Smokehouse Maple seasoning blend
1 Tbsp. Salt
1/2 c. BBQ sauce (I like Sweet Baby Ray’s)
Place pork ribs, seasoning blend and salt in slow cooker. Cook on low 4-6 hours.
Add 1/2 C. BBQ sauce 20-30 min before serving so it melts over the meat.
Freeze the pork ribs the night before. Place frozen pork ribs in your slow cooker with the seasonings. This will take the ribs longer to cook and you can increase the cook time another 2 hours.
Plug your crock pot into a simple timer (like this one). Set the crockpot on low and the timer to turn on 5 or 6 hours before you get home. If you use frozen pork ribs and let them start to thaw in the crock pot in the morning, they won’t be gross or room temperature if you’re worried about safe temperature of the meat.
Use a programmable crockpot (like this one) that will turn to warm after you specify the cook time.
There you go! Simple, super delicious, melt in your mouth pork ribs. Enjoy!
