Taste-Test Tuesday: Crockpot Ribs

Yesterday I made a pantry challenge recipe. The only thing I didn’t buy this week for my meal was the onion I used. I got this recipe from $5 dinners. I featured Erin’s blog on Feature Friday last week. I’m hoping to get a copy of her cookbook soon. I love all her recipes! The good news is that if you shop smart for this recipe you can feed your family for just $5 for dinner! (I didn’t, but that’s ok, it was still yummy!)

Country Crockpot Ribs

1.5 lb pork ribs  (I used double the amount of ribs)
1/4 – 1/2 bottle favorite BBQ sauce (I used an entire bottle)
1 onion
3 cloves garlic, crushed

Place 1/4 cup of BBQ sauce in the bottom of the crockpot. Place ribs on top of BBQ sauce. Sprinkle chopped onion and crushed garlic around and on top of ribs. Pour 1 cup or so of BBQ sauce over ribs. Cook on low for 8 hours.

I love simple recipes like that! Throw everything in and come back in 8 hrs to cooked dinner! To see Erin’s breakdown of cost for this meal visit her at $5 dinners.


Mommy’s plate. (Shared my meat portion with Little Man) I was in the mood for hashbrown type potatoes

Monkey’s plate. She ate the peas and a few bites of potato. She’s not much of a meat eater.

Buddy’s Plate. Afterward he said “I ate it all and didn’t throw a tantrum!” Silly guy.

About Paula

Paula Krueger considers herself a "baby "chef, not because she cooks for babies, but because she's still learning how to cook. She started this blog after taking Wilton method classes and at that point was more interested in baking. She's since become more interested in learning to cook as her family has grown. She also covers product reviews and travel as well.
