Sweet and sour pork has never been so easy! Throw this together in the slow-cooker, binge-watch some TV, and get to eating. Of course, if you want it to taste even better, follow the steps at the end to create a thick and truly mesmerizing sauce. I suggest a quick slaw or maybe some fluffy white rice for this one.

Ingredients (16):

  • 1 pack ButcherBox Baby Back Ribs
  • The Rub:
  • 1 Tbsp onion powder
  • 1 Tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 Tbsp smoked paprika
  • 1 Tbsp ginger powder
  • 1 Tbsp dry mustard powder
  • 2 Tbsp brown sugar
  • ½ tsp cayenne
  • 1 ts black pepper
  • 2 Tbsp kosher salt
  • The Liquid
  • ¼ c maple syrup
  • ¼ c coconut amino
  • ¼ c sherry vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp liquid smoke

Directions:

  1. Pat dry ribs with paper towel and peel off membrane on bone side of ribs. You can also score the membrane with a sharp paring knife in an ‘X’ formation.
  2. Mix all rub ingredients and massage into ribs.
  3. Place all liquid ingredients in slow-cooker, then add ribs. Cook on low setting for 4 hrs.
  4. Let rest in liquid 20 min before serving.
  5. For a super quick sauce, remove ribs from slow-cooker, then place all liquid in saucepan, and simmer until thickened.
  6. Pour over ribs and broil for extra crispy texture and real BBQ flavor!
