Easy crock pot ribs with little work. These are great served with rice.

Very tasty ribs! I varied the recipe slightly. Always looking for shortcuts, I used a 10oz bag of frozen chopped onions, (less would have sufficed), a full cup of apple butter and 1/2-1 tsp. of 'jar garlic' I keep refrigerated. The recipe is delicious, but I have to agree with another review...very fatty. Maybe try a pork roast next time? Also the cooking time was too long because the ribs were broken into tiny pieces. I may also try this at a lower cooking time, perhaps checking tenderness at 6hrs. I would have given this 5stars, but the '9 hour low cooking time' was just too long with my Smart CrockPot. But, it's worth a repeat and my husband liked it too! Thanks MizzNezz!
