I got this recipe from Quick Cooking magazine. DH loves it, and it is SO simple to put together from stuff I always have in the pantry.

Used boneless ribs, real good.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. If you have time, brown the ribs in a little oil. If not, just throw them in the crockpot.
  2. Put all the rest of the ingredients except the cornstarch and 1 Tbsp cold water in the crockpot too.
  3. Mix just to combine and coat the ribs.
  4. Cover and cook on low for 4-5 hours or until meat is tender.
  5. I have left it for as long as 8 hours and they came out fine. If you leave them in for a long time, just check to see if it needs any water now and then.
  6. Before serving, combine the cornstarch and cold water until smooth.
  7. Gradually stir into cooking juices to make gravy.
  8. Cover and cook 10-15 more minutes until thickened.
