A "Sogoodyou'llwanttoslapyourmama" Recipe

I get the Taste of Home magazine and it had a recipe in it this month that I just had to try. It's called, "Secret's in the Sauce" BBQ ribs. The name caught my eye because of the movie Fried Green Tomatoes, but fortunately, the secret ingredient is NOT the same with these ribs!

Seriously y'all, words cannot describe how good these ribs were. I made them on Saturday and my mouth is watering just thinking about them now. The meat was so tender that it was falling off the bone in the crock pot! Absolutely finger-lickin good! Jeremy was devouring them and he normally thinks ribs are too much work to worry about. Jackson even liked them, once I showed him how to eat them. And the best part: you cook them in the crock pot and the recipe only calls for 5 ingredients! Gotta love it!

"Secret's in the Sauce" BBQ Ribs

2 racks pork baby back ribs (about 4-1/2 pounds)
1-1/2 teaspoons pepper
2-1/2 cups barbecue sauce
3/4 cup cherry preserves
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 garlic clove, minced

Cut ribs into serving-size pieces; sprinkle with pepper. Place in a 5- or 6-qt. slow cooker. Combine the remaining ingredients; pour over ribs. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours or until meat is tender. Serve with sauce.

My only adjustments to the recipe were that I used Sweet Baby Ray's original barbeque sauce, but you could use any sauce that you like. I also don't like mustard, so I didn't add the Dijon mustard, and since I wouldn't have the faintest idea of how to mince a garlic clove, I just bought the jar of minced garlic and added 1tsp.

Give it a try. I promise you won't be disappointed!

Thanks! I'd kinda stopped liking the rib recipe I've been making. Not sure why. So I've been looking for a new one. We will definitely try this. I love some Sweet Baby Ray's!

I'll certainly have to try it. In agreement with Jeremy...ribs are too much work, kind of like crab legs. As far as garlic goes, minced garlic in a jar is the only way to go!

I think you can mince garlic by smashing it with a large butcher knife ('a la Rachael Ray) but I'm all about being lazy - so there's nothing wrong with minced garlic in a jar!

I might have to try these this weekend, now that I'm craving ribs (thanks, Amy!). I don't know if I'll add the mustard or not...and Sweet Baby Ray's is AWESOME!
