Even though I didn't officially take the week off from cooking, I simplified our dinner menu for the week to give myself a little bit of a break. Yesterday I threw some ribs in the crock pot before we headed out the door for our stay-cation fun. When we got home at 5:00 - the ribs smelled FANTASTIC and they were nearly ready to eat!! Gotta love the slow cooker.
These ribs were super tasty and so easy to make - even with the homemade barbecue sauce!
2 Tablespoons paprika
1 Tablespoon brown sugar
1 Tablespoon salt
2 teaspoons pepper
2 teaspoons onion powder
2 teaspoon garlic powder
5-6 pounds of St. Louis Style spareribs
3/4 cup ketchup
6 Tablespoons apple juice
2 Tablespoons molasses
2 Tablespoon cider vinegar
2 Tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce
1 Tablespoon yellow mustard
3/4 teaspoon pepper
Combine paprika, sugar, salt, pepper, onion powder and garlic powder.
Reserve 1 T. spice mixture and sprinkle remaining mixture over ribs.
