I am looking forward to the New Year. How about you? However, I only have one more day to come up with some fabulous New Year's Resolution that I tend to forget several months in. There are only two that have ever really stuck. Four years ago, when I was pregnant with my first son, I started a journal to document my pregnancy. I write in it every so often still so I can remember the boys silly sayings and just fun family times. The only other New Year's Resolution that stayed in effect, was cooking new foods. I try new recipes all the time. It has paid off over the years and I have found a lot of new favorites. Here is one of them...
Slow Cooker Ribs
4 lbs pork ribs
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup ketchup
4 tbsp vinegar
2 tsp oregano
2 tsp Worcestershire
1 tsp garlic powder
1 cup barbecue sauce
1 cup sweet chili sauce (the secret ingredient)
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line baking sheet with foil. Season both sides ribs with salt and pepper. Bake for 15 minutes on each side. Remove from oven.
2. Place in crock pot. Mix above ingredients in small bowl for sauce. Pour sauce over ribs in crock pot and turn to coat.
3. Cover and cook on low for 4-6 hours. It only took me 4 hours which was quite a surprise. They were so tender I could not even take them out of the crock pot without some of the rib meat falling off the bone.
4. Enjoy! Happy New Years!
