It's officially is Spring Break week! Even though we didn't take a beach trip or travel to some far-away, exotic island - Courtney and I are still managing to fill our week with fun and adventure. It's only Wednesday and I'm already feeling like the week is slipping by so fast that we won't be able to squeeze in all the activities that we wanted to accomplish this week.
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!
Slow Cooker Memphis Style Ribs
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
Arrange ribs vertically in slow cooker with thickest part of rib down. Cook on low 6-7 hours.
Remove ribs from slow cooker and let rest for 10 minutes - uncovered.
Place ribs on a foil lined baking sheet and brush with sauce and put under broiler for 3-4 minutes until lightly charred.
Remove ribs from oven. Cover and let rest 15 minutes before serving.
Cut ribs apart before serving.
No time to linger on the delicious Slow Cooker Memphis Style Ribs that we had for dinner last night. It's another beautiful day in Atlanta and we're not about to miss a moment of it. Happy Spring!
