Crock Pot Ribs - Super tender, ready to fall off the bone ribs and they're made in the crock pot.
Happy Monday everyone. Well, have you noticed anything different here today? Hmmm? Let's see, could it be my very own URL, or my new fancy blog header, or maybe just a whole entire NEW PAGE? Yes, you got it. This is my new blog design. What do you think? Chances are, you were redirected here from my former page, so take a second to bookmark this new URL so you can get here easier in the future.
With all this new blog stuff I've been working on, I've also been listening to you about what kind of recipes you want. I know you all love a good crock pot recipe. I just happen to be a crock pot recipe snob. I am not sharing a crock pot recipe, unless I am absolutely and totally in love with it. So, with that being said, I am in love with this crock pot rib recipe. My only downfall with this was that I really should have made two racks for all of us. One rack fed 3 of us (the little ones won't touch anything I cook these days), but just barely. So if you are 3 or more, make two racks.
The thing about me and ribs is, I'm never sure exactly what to do with that "silver" on the back. You know, that tough covering over the backside of the ribs. After some research on how to remove it, I found that it doesn't actually have to be removed. It can be scored with a sharp knife instead. I scored it, or rather, I slashed/stabbed it several times, man that stuff is tough and there was no way I could have removed it with the time crunch I was under.
The key to these ribs is when you put them in the crock pot, you put them in standing. Yes, that's what I said, standing up. This is the way to prevent them from turning into pulled pork, which is how all of my crock pot pork comes out, even when not intended.
There are many ideas as to what one is supposed to serve with ribs. I prefer to go mac and cheese.
So that's it, my very first post on the new site. I'd love to hear what you think of the new format (and the recipe, of course)!
