Before I get to my Magazine Monday submission, I want to say thank you to Rosabela at Cooking with Rosie for following my blog!
Grilling and Memorial Day seem to go together...as do BBQ ribs. But today I am posting a crock pot recipe for ribs. The torrential downpours and high winds we've been getting don't bode well for those us without a sheltered area to stand and grill.
As a matter of fact, last night Doug had hamburger patties all ready to grill but it was so nasty outside from the afternoon storm (we had hail) and the skies were still dark, thunder rumbling...it just got too late to start the charcoal. We'll be having those cheeseburgers for lunch today...before the next round of storms hit us.
In the meantime, if you want ribs and the weather isn't cooperating, try this crock pot version. It's good.
Ingredients you'll need..........
1 cup ketchup
3 tablespoons molasses
1 tablespoon cider vinegar
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon dark brown sugar
1 ½ teaspoons Dijon mustard
½ teaspoon hot pepper sauce (such as Tabasco )
4 pounds country-style pork ribs
In small bowl, stir together ketchup, molasses, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, sugar, mustard and hot sauce.
Place pork ribs in slow cooker and pour 1 cup sauce over top, reserving the rest for later. Cover and cook on HIGH for 6 hours or on LOW for 9 hours until very tender.
Remove ribs from slow cooker and brush with reserved sauce. Simple. As crock meals should be.
Served with homemade cole slaw, buttermilk mashed potatoes and biscuits...

I am submitting this to Creampuffs in Venice who hosts Magazine Mondays and to Dining with Deb for her Crock Pot Wednesdays.
If you make this one let me know how you like it. We loved this recipe. A keeper.
Have a safe and enjoyable Memorial day - be careful out there on the roads and waterways :-) And please remember why we're off, to remember our servicemen and women, tip a glass to them on their day.
