UJ's Special Crockpot Ribs
4 pounds of boneless country-style pork ribs
1 small red onion, coarsely chopped
1/2 yellow onion, coarsely chopped
16-oz of your favorite bbq sauce (I like Bullseye Original)
1 15-oz can of dark sweet pitted cherries in heavy syrup, not drained. This is optional. The cherries cook well into the sauce and add a sharp tangy sweetness.
salt & pepper
Olive oil, butter or spray.
In a large frying pan...I use my cast iron frying pan...brown the ribs using a light amount of butter, olive oil, or spray. Lightly season the ribs with salt & pepper while browning them.
Meanwhile place a layer of chopped red onion in the bottom the crockpot.
Place one layer of browned ribs over the onion.
Make it another layer of onion over the ribs.
Make it another layer of ribs.
Make it one last layer of chopped onion.
Then pour the can of cherries over the ribs/onions
Lastly pour 16 oz of your favorite bbq sauce over all.
Set the crockpot to low.
Set the timer on the crockpot for 8 hours.
...And then go about your day and when you return home there is a wonderful dinner waiting for you.
