Here’s a great slow cooker recipe that I like to prepare before I go to work. Get ready to arrive home to an awesome smelling house!
Nan’s Slow Cooker Ribs (Sweet & Sourish)
2 cups brown sugar (I use 1 cup brown sugar & 1 cup honey)
1/4 cup flour
1/3 cup water
1/2 cup white vinegar
2 tbsp. soy sauce
2 tbsp. ketchup or bbq sauce
1/4 tsp. ground ginger
1 or 2 cloves chopped garlic
3 lbs (2 decent racks) pork back ribs, or you can use beef ribs too!
Mix brown sugar and flour in saucepan. Add water (& honey if using). Stir. Add next 5 ingredients. Heat & stir until lightly boiling & thickened.
Layer ribs in a 5 quart (5L) slow cooker, spooning sauce over each layer. Cover & cook on low about 10 hours, or on high about 5 hours until ribs are very tender. You can shorten the time an hour or two for beef ribs. ***if you have just one rack of ribs, half the recipe, it works just as well!
I serve with a rice with peppers & onions dish & spoon the sauce onto the ribs & rice! Mmmmm!
