Blackberry BBQ Ribs

"Blackberries were on sale and so after looking at a lot of BBQ recipes, I put together this recipe! I threw in a pack of blackberries - not sure if it was six or eight ounces, but it was somewhere in there :) Also, I use organic, low salt and low sugar ketchup... you might want to lower the soy sauce if you ketchup is salty."

  • Cut the ribs into individual ribs.
  • Melt the butter in the olive oil, in a frying pan, over medium high. Once the oil is hot, add the pork ribs and sear. You don't want them cooked, but you want the sides brown to hold in the juices and give texture to the meat. You will probably need to do this in batches, so add the butter and oil a bit at a time until all the ribs are cooked.
  • Mix all the other ingredients in the blender and puree until smooth.
  • Place ribs into crock pot as they sear. Pour sauce over ribs.
  • Cook on high for five hours, turn to low and cook another 3-4 hours.
  • Enjoy! This is really nice with steamed veggies, with a touch of lemon juice.

  1. These were very good. We made a half batch with country style pork ribs. We cooked on low for eight hours and the sauce tasted a little burnt, but we still polished off half the ribs:) We will definitely try these again with a little less cook time. They were the perfect combination of spicy and sweet. Reviewed for spring PAC 2010.


<p>I love studying history! Most of the cookbooks I am collecting are half history book, half cookbook. <br /> <br />One of the best cookbooks I have ever read is Jewish Holiday Baking by Marcy Goldman. I like anything by Mollie Katzen, too. <br /> <br />I am trying to get better at making soups. I am also making forays into Russian cooking. <br /> <br />I am on a low carbohydrate diet for various and sundry health reasons. It's a lot of fun tweaking recipes to be low carb enough for me to enjoy. I've become a much better cook because of it. <br /> <br />I love sewing, embroidery, cooking, baking, and dancing. I just got a full time job again so I am relearning how to fit my cooking in around a strict schedule. The crock pot is once again my best friend.</p> <p><a href= target=_blank><br /></a></p>
