The crockpot makes easy work of pulled pork. This one features a coffee rub. Coffee, you say? The coffee adds a boost to the meaty flavor. After shredding the pork, it can be used in multiple ways. Serve in pork tacos, press a Cuban sandwich, add your favorite BBQ sauce, or even roll taquitoes. Note: Country pork ribs are thick meaty cuts with a bone, but are not spareribs. A pork butt would be a good substitute, but I find the country ribs make a smaller batch. ***I added no salt to the rub as the sauces contain enough for our family, but do add it if your family would miss it.
- Make rub and apply liberally to both sides of the country ribs.
- Place the onion slices in the bottom of the crockpot. Add the teaspoon of vinegar. Place seasoned country ribs on top. Add bay leaf.
- Cover and cook on high 3 hours. Check for tenderness. Continue cooking if need.
- Remove meat and onions. Shred the meat with two forks.
- Serve on buns for sandwiches by stirring in your favorite BBQ sauce, or use as is to make a pressed Cuban sandwich. The meat is also good to roll for taquitoes or makes tacos.
