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
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.
3. In a medium bowl, mix together the ketchup, chili sauce, brown sugar, vinegar, mustard, honey, oregano, Worcestershire sauce. Place ribs in slow cooker. Pour sauce over ribs, and turn to coat.
4. Cover, and cook on Low 6 to 8 hours, or until ribs are tender.
