This is a wonderful tasty dish for those rainy days ahead. It has a mellow flavor and the meat is succulent but for some it may need a bit of hot sauce (I added 2 tbsp to the sauce).
- 1 large onion, peeled, sliced and separated into rings
- 3 -4 lbs country-style pork ribs
- 1 cup tomato juice
- 1 cup vegetable cocktail (or instead of Tomato juice and the vegetable cocktail use 2 cups extra spicy Clamato Juice)
- 2 tablespoons molasses
- 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
- 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
- 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
- 1⁄2 teaspoon poultry seasoning
- salt and pepper
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons cornstarch
- 4 tablespoons water
- Place onion rings in the bottom of your crock pot.
- Place ribs on top (trim off any excess fat).
- Whisk together the remaining ingredients except the corn starch.
- Reserve 1 cup--cover and refrigerate this cup.
- Pour remaining sauce over the ribs, cover pot.
- Cook at low for 5-6 hrs, drain ribs, keep warm.
- In a small saucepan, add 1 1/2 tsp cornstarch already mixed in cold water to the reserved sauce , simmer until it thickens.
- Serve with noodles, rice or gnocchi.
Hey Bergy: Can't believe noone has tried your Crockpot Country Ribs. They are fantastic! Very easy to put together and the taste is DIVINE! Tossed a salad with Tonkcats Olive Garden Italian Salad Dressing, set on crusty bread to go with, and we had ourselves a feast! Thanks for posting another great recipe! Laudee C.
Sorry but the vinegar flavor in these was overpowering. I prefer my old recipe of throwing a chopped onion, ribs and a bottle of bar-b-que sauce in the crockpot.
wow, the smell of these was wonderful!!! I did use spicey clamato and it really kicked it up. The meat just fell off the bone and the recipe was so easy to throw together. Thanks Bergy!
