Crockpot Spare Ribs

  • 1 pound beef short ribs
  • 1/2 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 8 ounces can tomato sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 medium onion
  • 1 15-ounce can kidney beans
  • 3 cloves chopped garlic

This recipe makes 4 servings.

Put ribs in pot of boiling water, reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove ribs from water and drain well to remove as much fat as possible. (This can easily be done the evening before to save time in the morning)

Brown ribs in hot oil. Remove, drain all but 1 tsp fat. Add chopped garlic, lightly brown in oil. Add chili powder, tomato sauce, bring to simmer. (You can do all of this the evening before to save more time.) Sprinkle ribs with salt and pepper put in crockpot. Add sauce and sliced onion. Cover and slow cook 6 to 8 hours on LOW.

Remove bones from pot, skim off any visible fat. Add kidney beans, cover and cook on HIGH one hour.
