This is another installment of the original question featured here. Today, I will share a recipe using pork. Its another family favorite. Especially the homemade BBQ sauce! It is another one that uses a crockpot, but the main thing is the sauce. Today’s is BBQ Country Style Ribs.
BBQ Country Style Ribs
-homemade barbecue sauce (or any barbecue sauce)
-boneless country style pork ribs
Jessica’s BBQ Sauce:
1 cup ketchup
3 tablespoons molasses
1 tablespoon cider vinegar
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon spicy brown mustard
1/2 teaspoon Tabasco sauce
1/2 teaspoon liquid smoke
3 tablespoons local honey (or any honey)
Mix all of your ingredients together. Store in a resealable container.
To make the BBQ ribs, just put your country style ribs in your crockpot. If you are layering them, put a light layer of sauce between them. Otherwise, just cover the ribs barely. You will have lots of sauce leftover.
Cover and cook on LOW for 6-8 hours. Again, I recommend LOW and slow, but if you need to hurry, just use high for 3-4 hours.
When they are nice and brown, pull them from crockpot and add additional sauce over them.
I usually make a double batch of the sauce so that when we eat anything else that is deserving of BBQ sauce, we always have some on hand. I even made this last year for Christmas gifts!
Another take on this is to get a pork butt and cover it (slightly) with the BBQ sauce. Cook the same amount of time. Instead of immediately removing from the crockpot, shred it with 2 forks then put all the shredded pork into a bowl and mix with BBQ sauce. Serve it on buns and you have shredded pork sandwiches!
Ever made your own sauces? I love making mine, we still have half a jar of it!
