It is the Butcher’s Birthday on Tuesday. One of his favorite meals is Barbecued Ribs. I have to admit we celebrated his Birthday today with family and we grilled out hamburgers. It was wonderful to have a day nice enough for grilling out. I am still sharing the recipe for ribs because it is his favorite.
The Butcher took 2 meaty pork spare ribs and cut them into two bone pieces. I rubbed the pieces with the 2 Tablespoons of Smokey Barbecue Seasoning and put them in the crock pot. I cooked them on high for approximately 4 1/2 hours. I then removed the ribs from the crock pot and drained the juice. I returned the ribs to the crock pot and covered them with 1 bottle of barbecue sauce. If you prefer ribs without sauce, you can eliminate the barbecue sauce. If you like yours saucy (like the Butcher and I) you can add a second bottle of barbecue sauce about 1 hour before you are going to serve them.
Herold’s Traditional Cole Slaw or Memphis Cole Slaw is a great accompaniment for this meal.
Leftovers are just as good heated up.
Until next time…From our Butcher Block to your Table.
