Today’s recipe is provided by a friend of our family. It’s an original, slow cooker recipe for boneless country pork ribs. I love my crock pot, and slow cooking meat is the best way to make it fall-off-the-bone good. There aren’t any bones in this recipe, but the result is still tender and delicious.
The ribs are cooked up one day and served the next. What a great idea, especially if you are having a summer cookout or get-together. All you’ll need to do is heat the sauce and the ribs up just before serving. How simple is that!
D & J Divine Ribs!
4 ½ to 5 pounds of Boneless Country Pork Ribs
Dry Vermouth (1/3 to 1/2 cup – enough to cover the ribs)
1 Sweet Onion, diced
10 Cloves of Garlic, finely sliced
3/4 cup Bar-B-Q Sauce (your favorite brand)
Marinate the meat in dry vermouth overnight.
In a separate large frying pan, saute the onion and garlic in olive oil until soft.
Once the onion and garlic are done, add the Bar-B-Q sauce.
Add ribs and the vermouth marinade to slow cooker with ¼ of the onion/garlic/BBQ sauce mixture.
Cook on high for 2 ½ hours.
Add the rest of the onion/garlic/Bar-B-Q sauce mixture and cook on low for an hour.
Cool in the refrigerator overnight.
Skim off extra fat before the next step.
Remove the ribs from the sauce.
Heat the sauce on the stove top or in the microwave. Add some water if the sauce needs thinning.
Grill the ribs on high for one minute on each side to heat them up and to provide a wonderful char.
Add the ribs back into the delicious sauce.
Dinner is served!
Our friend said that if you have enough Bar-B-Q sauce left over, you can cook yellow rice with it and serve with the ribs.
