Yes, that’s the truth. In a tub! I love my crockpot and when we have electricity on the boat it’s my best friend. We try to hit the road and see the sites during the day and when we come home there’s nothing better than the smell of my little “tub” cook’n away!
Netherlands and Belgium pride themselves with their ribs. I thought the south had the best but…I guess they have some competition now. European ribs are amazing and yet covered with a BQ sauce that is more than likely loaded with sugar.
I wanted to find a way to avoid the sauce but also provide that fresh smokey grill flavor and the option for adding sauce. Plus you don’t have to light up the grill if you don’t want to. Awww go ahead, light the grill and throw them on for 10 minutes after they have cooked in the “tub” for 8 hours or more. You’ll look like you’ve been at it all day!
I used to boil or broil the heck out of the ribs first to make them tender then throw them on the grill. NEVER again…I want to spend time touring, or with my guest, my man or creating a delicious side or dessert. Dust off your crockpot and lather your ribs with Rub-a-dub-dub and enjoy your friends, loved ones or create something new instead of working in the kitchen all day.
