Slow Cooker Country-Style Pork Ribs
Another great Kittencal recipe.
Notes from our test kitchen; do not substitute pancake syrup for maple syrup it does not work well in the recipe, use you favorite honey barbecue sauce, do not use a smokey flavor sauce, this also works well using thicker cut pork steaks… a 5-quart slow cooker is needed for this recipe
1 large onion or 2 smaller onions, sliced
4 large garlic cloves, sliced in half (garlic lovers can use more)
2-1/2 pounds boneless country-style pork ribs
1 (18-ounce) bottle of honey barbecue sauce
pinch cayenne pepper, or adjust to taste
1/3 cup pure maple syrup
1/4 cup spicy brown mustard (I use French’s spicy brown mustard)
1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper, or to taste
Place the onion slices and garlic clove halves into the bottom of the slow cooker, place the ribs on top.
In a bowl combine barbecue sauce with cayenne pepper, maple syrup, brown mustard and black pepper; pour over the ribs.
Cover and cook on LOW for 8-9 hours or until meat is tender.
Serve the meat with the sauce (you may remove the garlic halves if desired or leave them in).
