Crock Pot Ribs

Wow, it's Monday again already. Last week was quite eventful. I'll elaborate on that in another post, but today I was on my own again to run my whole household (including dinner). This is what I came up with. I had some pork spare ribs, but I didn't have a lot of time to mess around with them. I had to work today. So I looked on the internet to see how to cook them in my crock pot. I found several recipes, some more complicated than others. This was by far the simplest, and quite obviously the one I picked.


2 racks of spare ribs
1 16 oz bottle of bbq sauce

Put the ribs on a foil lined baking sheet and broil in the oven for 10 min per side. This is supposed to crisp them up some and drain some of the fat. I forgot I was broiling them until something started smelling good, so they were probably on the first side for 20 minutes, whoops. Didn't seem to hurt anything though. Cut them in half so they will fit in the crock pot. Slather bbq sauce on each section before you put it in the crock pot. Dump the rest of the bottle on the top. Cook on low for 6 hours. Broil for another 10 minutes when ready to serve if you want them a little more crispy on the outside.

My washer was making a strange LOUD noise last week when it changed cycles and now it has stopped, suppose its eating socks?
