Crock Pot Barbecued Ribs

READY IN: 8hrs 10mins
Recipe by Marie

As easy as can be and they come out so tender and delicious! Not sure how many servings in the whole recipe. I usually halve the recipe and there definitely are leftovers when serving only two people. Although I haven't tried it, you probably could easily make pulled pork sandwiches from this.

I've had an issue with crock pots/slow cookers since my original one which my DH gave me (he my BF at the time) 36 years ago and in it I could cook a meat dish for 12 hour plus and know it would not come out dry but these days it is a juggle act with the crock pots and I have gone through a few since my original went to crock pot heaven but today I allowed 4 to 5 hour to cook the pork but checked at 3 1/2 hours and it was just under so put to warm as I the sauce was really watery, about 1/2 hour before I wanted to serve I scooped out as much of the sauce as I could without draining it completely and put the crock pot on warm as I bought the sauce up to the boil in a small saucepan and added a slurry of 2 teaspoons cornflour/cornstarch mixed with water to thicken and then added back into the crock pot and let simmer on low as I served up the rest of the dish. I served with recipe #449952 on the side and some steamed bok choy with sesame oil though in future would consider serving with rice to soak up that lovely sauce. Thank you Marie, made for Name that Ingredient tag game.
