  1. What do you do with chilli sauce


  1. A-MA-ZING!! I made this over the weekend, according to your instructions, and the only thing I did was add a couple tablespoons extra of vinegar as mine was not as sharp ( getting towards the end of the bottle, and it loses some zing over time) also I did add a bit of cornstarch to thicken at the end. This is definitely going in to my permanent recipe box. Thank you Kitten..<br/>by the way, I am searching your recipes specifically for more yums.. big smile
  2. Oh WOW!! Let me tell you...I changed this recipe a LOT and still it was probably the best meal I've had in 6 months! I was searching for a BBQ pork recipe but most of the recipes called for just pouring a bottle of sauce into a crock pot. I wanted something more. Kitten's recipes have never failed me so I searched her recipe arsenal and this one caught my eye. I used a 2 pound pork tenderloin that I did not sear in the oven first. I used Open Pit original BBQ sauce and Heinz Chili Sauce. I did about 6 shakes of Tabasco and added a minced onion to the mixture. I cooked this in the crockpot on low for 4 hours, shredded the meat, and let the meat sit in the sauce for 30 more minutes. I served this on buns with hot giardiniera. OH MY!!!! I ate more tonight than I have EVER eaten! That's a bad thing...but this was pure HEAVEN. have a gift with these recipes. Thank you so much for this true winner!
  3. another delicious recipe from kittencal! okay, my changes when i made the second time, sprinkled some worcestershire sauce on top on the ribs on both sides before searing in oven. used local-store bought bar-be-que sauce instead and added chopped onion and garlic. both times i've cooked these, about 5 hours on low in crock-pot has been perfect, but cooking time will depend on meat. these are some very, very good ribs. thanks so much for the recipe, kittencal! don't skip the searing the ribs in the oven step. i think this is what make these ribs so great. first, it seals in the meat juices, and it gets rid of some the excess fat from the ribs.
  4. I knew I'd be short on time on Sunday, so on Saturday when I was making dinner, I browned the ribs, let them cool, and put them in the fridge. I also mixed up the sauce and let it sit in a container overnight. Then on Sunday morning I put everything in the slow cooker and let it cook for 8 hours on low. These were the most delicious, fall off the bone tender ribs I've ever had! My whole family loved them, and they were SO easy! Thanks so much for the PERFECT crock pot ribs recipe!
  5. These were sooo tasty ! I am certainly not a fan of BBQ made anywhere except the grill, but these were great ! It doesn't hurt that they were the easiest ever to cook. With 2 year old grandbaby running around I need a lot of simple recipes sometimes lol.I used country style ribs for this, and my family inhaled them. Thanks Kitttencal for another fab recipe.
