I had some ribs in the freezer (forever) and wanted to use them up without going to any effort of grilling etc.
I scoured some recipe sites and found a slow cooker recipe and thought, perfect! No work!!!
I played around with several recipes and added some of my own ideas and came up with this.
4 pounds pork baby back ribs
salt and pepper to taste
2 cups ketchup or use a homemade mix
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
Sriracha hot chili sauce - however much works for you
4 tablespoons vinegar
4 tablespoons of Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons of honey
2 teaspoons oregano
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
I added celery, carrot, garlic and onion to sauce that I discard before serving
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
2. Season ribs with salt and pepper. Place in a shallow baking pan. Brown in oven 15 minutes. Turn over, and brown another 15 minutes; drain fat.
4. Cover, and cook on Low 6 to 8 hours, or until ribs are tender.
