I love ribs ! But we seldom have ribs at home since takes time to make ribs.. and busy us do not have the time.
I saw this recipe from the Civilized Caveman (<= click) site and could not resist the temptation to try it. Instead of using beef short ribs, I made it with country style pork ribs.
I am usually "lazy" when it comes to crockpot. I would always skip the step of pan searing the meat before it goes into the crockpot. But I was "diligent" when I made this... and took time to sear the ribs ! Well.. its my favourite ribs.. so I gonna make an effort.
The BF came back from work and first time he mentioned was " the ribs smell good".... I was in the house the whole morning and did not noticed it.
We had it after our Tuesday work out. It was really good. I thought that the vinegar will be overpowering... but it blended really well with the ribs ! Love love !
