Baby Back Ribs


For those of you who don't know that song, it is sung by Jerry Kilgore. I have no idea who he is other than he sings that country song! It is one of the songs I learned to line dance to when I was going to classes with my Aunt Marlene and it was one of my favorite dances!

However, this post really isn't about the dance. Its about the food. The food just reminds me of the song :) Yeah, I know. Goofy. Grumpy tells me that all the time!


I have been reading Jessie's blog The Hungry Mouse for a while now. Jessie is definitely a meat eater! Grumpy would love to be a guest in her home on a regular basis and I'm convinced I would be too!! I looked her recipes over and I do plan to make them - but this time, for my first time making ribs, I decided to do what my sister-in-law Heidi does. The rib recipe Jessie posted today is probably my next try!

My sister-in-law Heidi cooks the ribs in her crockpot with two bottles of Sweet Baby Ray's sauce and then broils them to crisp them up. I decided to not cook them in the BBQ sauce because Grumpy prefers not so much sauce. But, I did use Heidi's method. I basically cooked my ribs in the crockpot using a recipe I found on allrecipes.com as a guide, then pulled them out and broiled them.


Baby Back Ribs with Sweet Baby Ray's Honey BBQ Sauce

1 package baby back ribs
2 celery stalks, cut in half
1 teaspoon black peppercorns
5 -1/2 cups water
1 onion, sliced

Cook in crockpot on high for 1-1/2 hours. Change setting to low and continue to cook for 5 more hours.

Line cookie sheet with foil. Place ribs on foil and brush BBQ sauce over top. Broil on high approximately 5 minutes. Turn and repeat. Serve!

The verdict? They were great! Even Grumpy said they were great! Thanks Jessie for giving me the "nudge" I needed to try making ribs on my own! :)

  10. They look great! I never seem to make baby back ribs in the winter - since I do them on the grill, they make me think of summer! My husband would be thrilled if he could have them all year long!
