Give-Me-More Barbecued Ribs

Becky gave me a "Fix-It and Forget-It" cookbook for Christmas. We've been taking turns choosing a recipe to make and tonight was Aaron's night. The results were a LOT better than I expected (I'd have never thought to cook ribs in a crock pot!). They were called Give-Me-More Barbecued Ribs, and since I found a package of ribs at 40% off, we tried them out. :-)

Makes: 6 servings
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 8-10 hours
Ideal slow cooker size: 6 quart
4 lbs. pork ribs
1/2 cup brown sugar
12-oz. jar chili sauce
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
2 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
2 Tbsp. Dijon mustard
1 tsp. hot sauce
1. Place ribs in slow cooker
2. Combine remaining ingredients. Pour half of sauce over ribs.
3. Cover. Cook on low 8 - 10 hours.
4. Serve with remaining sauce.
I used plain mustard because that's what I had, and I used more hot sauce. Also, our ribs were tender and meat literally falling off the bone after 6 hours, so 8 to 10 hours may be too long. This was good, but you could just as easily use a bottle of your favorite Barbecue sauce.

What kind of chili sauce did you use?

Becky - I used whatever was cheapest at United. I think it was Food Club brand. I also had a small amount of left-over bar-b-que sauce in my fridge that I threw in.
Amy- What I liked about the recipe was the ease. Little work for a big impression on my teen boys. LOL. Seriously, I think just a bottle of bar-b-que sauce would be just as good!
