Crock Pot Pork Ribs

READY IN: 8hrs 15mins
Recipe by MeredithJ

Delicious fall-off-the-bone pork ribs....sooo good! While the original recipe calls for country-style boneless ribs, I've used pork spare ribs purchased at the butcher counter of the grocery store.

I rarely write reviews - and have never written a negative one - but this sauce is nasty. The soy sauce overpowers everything. I tried and tried to doctor it up, but it still was gross. It may test better when cooked, but with how awful it was, I decided I was not going to risk putting it on the ribs and ruining them. I just went back to using my standard homemade bbq sauce. Disappointed it wasn't better. :-(
