By putting the ribs in a slow cooker, they will cook for an extended period of time, in a sweet and tangy sauce to make them perfect. It helps to imagine the warm weather is right around the corner.

These ribs come out almost melting in your mouth. They are so fork tender you do not need a knife.

Frequently Asked Questions:

            Could I use Pork Ribs instead of beef?

Of course you can! Be warned though that since pork is leaner than beef, the pork ribs will cook faster.

            Should I use boned or boneless ribs?

Either one can be used. The cooking times may vary however.

            Can I cut the meat before adding it to the sauce?

You can, this will also help the meat cook faster.

            How do I store the leftovers?

They should be wrapped tightly or placed in an airtight container and then into the refrigerator. They will last for 4 to 5 days.

            Can I freeze the ribs once they are cooked?

Definitely! Place them in a freezer safe container and store them in the freezer for up to 3 months.
