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.
- 4 -5 lbs boneless pork spareribs, cut into pieces
- 1 medium onion
- 1 cup ketchup
- 1⁄2-1 cup water
- 1⁄4 cup packed brown sugar
- 1⁄4 cup cider vinegar
- 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
- 2 teaspoons mustard
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons salt
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- Place half the ribs in a slow cooker and top with half the onion.
- Repeat layers.
- Combine the remaining ingredients and pour over all.
- Cover and cook on low for about 8 hours or until ribs are tender.
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 Yummy Chinese Cold Noodles for Peanutbutter Lovers! 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.
Just wondering if the folks that said the sauce was too watery were confused by the way the amount of water was written. At first, I thought it was one and half cups of water, but on closer look, I believe it is half of one cup of water....
This was the first time I ever used a slow cooker. I haved the recipe but cooked for the 8 hrs listed. They tasted good and sauce was watery. Will do again but cut cooking time. on to the next slow cooker meal.
