    5 hours 10 min

    Spare ribs are coated in a honey, mustard, maple syrup and soy sauce mixture. Slow cooking them for 5 hours makes the meat so much more tender.

    • 2 tablespoons mustard
    • 4 tablespoons honey

    1. In the slow cooker, mix together the stock, mustard, honey, water, BBQ sauce, soy sauce and maple syrup. Slice ribs apart, leaving an even amount of meat on each side of the bone. Place them into the slow cooker so that they are covered by the sauce. If there is not enough sauce, you may add a little water or beef stock to compensate.
    2. Cover, and cook on High for 5 hours, or until the meat falls easily from the bones.

    I've only rated one other dish 5*.Came out absolutely perfect. Only observation was that I checked them at the 4hr mark and they were ready. Had I waited 5 hrs, they would have been mush in the bottom of the pot. What flavor!!! Made them again, this time I put them under the broiler for a few minute after I took them out of the crock (after 4hrs). They were tender - but dry. Guess I won't do that again (the broiler part).  -  05 Mar 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I substitute ribs for thick, boneless pork chops and they always taste amazing. After cooking, I strain the liquid into a sauce pan. Then. I mix 2tbsp corn starch to 2 tbsp cold water, add it to the liquid, and bring to a boil until thick (about five minutes). It makes for a WONDERFUL sauce to pour over the pork chops - guests love it every time!  -  19 Jun 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
