Slow Cooker Ribs

I love my slow cooker, it’s seriously the best invention ever and ribs, ribs are amazing. Ok so you couldn’t eat them every day but they are a great great treat especially when you can set off to work and leave them to cook all day.

The man spotted the recipe at the clothes make the girl which is one of the best paleo blogs out there if you ask me. She tells you to get these ingredients together…

3-4 pounds pork or beef ribs
salt & ground black pepper
coarse (granulated) garlic powder
Chinese five-spice powder
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
1 tablespoon coconut aminos

and then do this with them…

1. Lay the ribs on a cutting board and sprinkle generously with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Now rub a good amount of five-spice powder onto the ribs. I didn’t measure, but I was pretty aggressive with it; the top of the ribs were pretty evenly brown with powder.

2. Measure the rice vinegar and the coconut aminos into the bottom of a slow cooker. Add the ribs, cover, and cook on high for about 6 hours or on low for 8-10. Really, you can’t cook them too long. They’re ribs; they’re very forgiving.

3. Chill the liquid left in the bottom of the slow cooker so the fat separates. Bring the remaining liquid to a boil, simmer for a few minutes, then use as a dipping sauce for the meat.
