Crock Pot Sunday- Slow Cooked "Country" Pork Ribs EDITED

This week I am going to take a crack at slow cooked pork ribs in my crockpot.  The recipe looks easy
as pie...  hmmm, maybe we will have pie for dessert. 


It's hard to find a crock pot recipe that doesn't use a can of cream of something soup or a packet of Lipton onion soup, which is why I chose to start with this one... I also have most of the ingredients. 

Crock Pot Pork Ribs


You will need 5-7 lbs of Country Pork Ribs.  Silly me didn't realize what "country" meant...

Country-style ribs (a.k.a. Country Ribs). Country-style ribs are not really ribs. They are cut from the front end of the baby backs near the shoulder and a tray of country-style ribs in the grocery store will contain few, if any, ribs.




Slice 1 medium onion and placed on the bottom of the slow cooker.  I used 2 small Vidalia onions for sweetness.




Combine: 3/4 c packed brown sugar, 1/4 c soy sauce, 1/2 c ketchup, 1/4 c honey, 1 T cider or white vinegar, 3 garlic cloves minced, 1 t ground ginger (from a tube), 1/2 t crushed red pepper flakes (did not have so added a splash of hot sauce). I'll try to do this on Saturday.  (I probably could have marinated the meat all night... didn't think of it till the morning.)


Add ribs and turn to coat in sauce.



Place country style pork ribs in cooker on top of onions.  Pour remaining sauce over ribs.


Cover and cook on low for 5-6 hours.





(Went to church and enjoyed taking our time during coffee hour knowing dinner was cooking.)






Waiting for us when we got home:


Option: Sprinkle toasted sesame seeds and chopped green onions before serving. Maybe next time. Oh wow~!  I remembered the green onions and toasted sesame seeds this time and it changed the flavor all together to an even more wonderful taste! 

I wanted the meat a bit crispier, so I took a few pieces, placed them on a cookie sheep with aluminum foil, and broiled them for a few minutes:

BEFORE


AFTER


As I typed this out I was imagining a cool potato salad with boiled eggs and chopped pickles on the side which made me think I should boil the potatoes and eggs on Saturday to make Sunday after church as "cook-free" as possible.  (This was a great idea!)


After the fact:
Then I went ahead a strained some of the liquid, which was too fatty...



Skimmed some of the fat off...

 
 
And heated it up for a sauce.  The guys wanted rice and not my delicious potato salad, and the sauce was full of flavor and a nice addition.  Go Guys!



Luckily, there is plenty left for tomorrow!

I forgot I wrote "Easy as pie..." and came home with a Marie Calendar's Coconut Cream Pie, currently defrosting in the fridge for tomorrow to celebrate the Nativity of the Virgin Mary! Very funny!
