Happy Friday! I prescheduled this post due to the loss of a brother and his funeral services so I will not be around. I do hope that you enjoy it.
As someone that finds my life packed like most of you, it can be hard to slow down my work to make dinners. A few years ago I had tried the crockpot meals, which worked wonderfully for my family. The only reason we don’t still continue to do it is I’ve been slacking.
One of my family’s favorites is crockpot ribs that don’t need any extra sauce. They come out tender and so full of flavor. I do suggest that you make it early enough that the meat has time to marinade in the sauce it’ll cook in. I make mine several days in advance or even weeks. It will spend its time in the freezer if it’ll weeks.
I cannot for the life of me remember where I found the original recipe for it, but I do not claim any ownership over it now.
Here is my family recommended crockpot rib recipe.
CrockPot Ribs (We double this recipe for 6 people)
- 2 lbs of ribs
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon pepper
- 1 Tablespoon garlic powder
- 3/4 cup Coke (flat soda works here)
- 1 Tablespoon honey
- Extra BBQ sauce, optional (We don’t use it)
Write on the bag:
Cook on high for 4-5 hours or on low 8-9 hours. Cooking time varies according to the size of the crockpot.
Add all the ingredients to the freezer bag. Seal it and give it a good mix.
After you have prepared them, you may want to drizzle about a 1/2 cup BBQ sauce about 15 minutes before serving. I wouldn’t recommend using the sauce that was on the ribs as there is a lot of grease. The ribs will have tremendous flavor without it.
Again, I do not claim ownership of the recipe and will come back later to add the link if I discover where I found the original recipe. We have even used the sauce on various other meats to create fajitas style food. It is a sweeter flavor of ribs but they are amazing.
I hope you enjoy the recipe. I’m sorry I forgot to get pictures. Remember to L.O.L. (Live it, Own it, Love it) or it isn’t worth doing.
