It is surely feeling like fall here. Not only in the sense that it is hunting season but the fact that the fireplace is going everyday, I'm wanting to bake everyday, soup is back on the dinner menus and it is by oldest birthday. The hubby is strange in the fact that he only wants or will eat soup and stew during the fall and winter. Me I could eat a big bowl of chili any night of the week!
So just what has been cooking in the kitchen? Today is brownies and Crock-pot pork ribs. It is my oldest daughter's 14th birthday today. She requested her favorite of BBQ pork ribs cooked in the Crock-pot and I was all ready to share with you photos of all the steps, but the camera went with the hunters today and has not returned. I'm hoping that means that they have a buck down and will be coming home with pictures and meat!
So I will give you the recipe and you will just have to use your imagination for the picture part.
Easy Crock-pot BBQ Pork Ribs
1 rack of ribs (around 5 lbs)
salt and pepper to taste
2 tablespoons liquid smoke
To keep the ribs from making a mess in the crock pot, line it with aluminum foil. Put in two pieces of aluminum foil cross wise and this will keep everything from sticking in the pot and make clean up a breeze.
After that split the rack of ribs in half, salt and pepper to taste, put in the crock pot pour in the liquid smoke and a small amount of BBQ sauce and cook on high heat for 3 hours. After 3 hours turn to low heat and continue to cook until the meat is just ready to fall off the bones.
Now you can finish the ribs in different ways. If the weather is warm and nice I fire up the propane grill and baste them with the BBQ sauce that way. However if the weather is like it is today I put the ribs on a cookie sheet spread the BBQ sauce all over them and put them in under the broiler for no more than 15 min or until the BBQ sauce is cooked on the ribs.
Serve this with your favorite rib side dishes and don't worry about the clean up, because you lined the pot with aluminum foil.
