Pork ribs in crock pot

Hope everyone had a good Memorial Day. I have been under the weather or about to drive myself and everyone else crazy acting like an ol' dog with fleas. I also look like a cooked lobster. Come to find out my blood pressure meds and the sun don't mix. So for the last two weeks I have scratched and thought I'd have to be put down. Imagine how your mosquito bites feel and think all over your body even my lips and ears and you get the picture, not pretty. So with that said I did not cook outside but looked up a recipe to use the pork ribs in the crock pot. I must say it was real tasty and the sauce would be good with some chicken legs we may try that next time.

We also fixed the Corn on the cob and even though my lips were burning it was good.
You can find the recipe for the corn under April 30. I don't think I'll eat corn any other way now.

Again thanks to Recipe Zaar and George Kinzy for this one. (the name may change to Food .com (so boring) but it will always be the Zarr to me. This also makes a lot of sauce so we did put over rice.

5 lbs country style ribs
1 cup chopped celery
2 cups chopped onion
1/2 cup bell pepper
1 cup ketchup
1/2 cup yellow mustard
1 cup barbecue sauce (we use Sweet Baby Rays) yum yum they have some good sauce.
1 cup water
3 Tablespoons dark cider vinegar
2 Tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 Tablespoon brown sugar
1 teaspoon salt]1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 14 oz can diced tomatoes
we also added some red pepper flakes for some kick add to taste if you want to.
We did boil the ribs for 30 minutes to decrease the fat.

Mix all ingredients together very well.

put pork in crock pot adding sauce to cover

cook on high for 5 hours.

This starting smelling the house up in about 3 hours it was hard to wait the 5.

That sounds pretty miserable Will.

Hope you are better now. Been out a few days gettin' ready for horse showing.

The ribs look good. As hot as it is, it's good to have a handy recipe for the crock pot.
