Yummy Mummy Monday: BBQ Ribs

With baby #2 just weeks away from making their debut, I've been getting our freezer stocked up and have been trying to pick a variety of dishes that can be popped out of the freezer and into the slow cooker. Easy peasy. These are hands- down some of the best ribs I've ever tasted. Ah- mazing. And before you start thinking my ego has got the better of me I'll let you know that this is my mama- in- law's recipe. ;) 

I love  these ribs. When I was telling one of my girl friends about this recipe, she mentioned how she would love to make them, but with a pre- teen and a hubby in the house this can be a bit of a pricey meal. If you've got a similar scenario where you've got some family members (ahem, men) that could eat half a pig in a sitting, you could pick up another cut of pork (or even some turkey or chicken) and make this as pulled pork. I'm drooling just thinking about all the delicious versions you could make with the sauce in this recipe. So on that note...


Yummy Mummy Recipe: BBQ Ribs

Ingredients:
1 rack of pork ribs (again, you could try this as a pulled pork/ chicken/ turkey recipe too)

For the Sauce
2 cups ketchup
1/2 tsp dry mustard
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup vinegar
1 cup brown sugar (or try 1/2 cup brown sugar & 1/2 cup honey)
2 tbsp corn starch


Directions:
1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Cut the rack into the individual ribs & pop in water.
2. Boil ribs for 45 minutes, then remove from heat & drain (this is important to help reduce the fat and make these fall- off- the- bone tender).
3. To make the sauce, combine all ingredients in a large bowl or crock pot, stirring to reduce lumps.
4. Toss in ribs & coat well.
5. Bake in oven for 45 minutes at 350 degrees or in a slow cooker* (low 4- 6 hours, high 2- 4 hours)
6. Serve with rice & your favourite sides.

If you want to freeze these for later, allow to cool & transfer to a freezer bag or container. You can slow cook these from frozen- just add 2 hours to the crock pot cook time- or allow to thaw first.

*To make pulled pork, etc, just pop your meat in the slow cooker and cook in the sauce from raw, but keep in mind that you may want to cut up the meat to help it cook faster and more evenly.
