Tuesday Tasty Pork Recipe

Things have been busy on the farm with harvest, obviously since I haven't blogged since my last Tuesday Tasty Pork Recipe...  Anyways, as promised, here is another favorite pork recipe in honor of National Pork Month.  I figured I have done recipes with ham, bacon, and ground pork, so today I better do a pork rib recipe.  This is my favorite way to make pork ribs.  It is so simple (crock pot!) and the meat just falls off the bone.  Plus, I use my homemade BBQ sauce on the ribs.  I modified this recipe from a Pillsbury recipe.  I'm afraid no photos because I haven't been home to cook supper in the last week - I've been too busy in the field!

2 racks of pork ribs
3 garlic cloves, minced

BBQ Sauce:
1 cup ketchup
1/4 cup brown sugar
2-3 spoonfuls minced chipotle chiles in adobo sauce
1-2 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp. salt

Place pork ribs in slow cooker.  Sprinkle with garlic.  Cover and cook on low for 6 hours.

About 30 minutes before serving, drain and discard juices from the slow cooker and pour or spoon BBQ Sauce over the ribs.  To make the BBQ Sauce combine all ingredients, mix well.

*** Special Ingredient Tip ***  Chipotle chiles in adobo sauce is bought in a small can.  You will never use the entire can in one recipe, so what I do is put the entire can (chiles and sauce) in a small food processor and mince till chiles are finely chopped.  Use in recipe as directed and put unused in a ziploc bag.  Freeze leftovers and thaw next time chipotle chiles in adobo sauce are needed in a recipe.  (I learned this from Rachael Ray!)
