Welcome to this slow cooker/crockpot blog. I believe slow cookers are the best thing to happen to modern day cooks. I used mine often when I worked outside the home and continue to do so even in retirement. It is so nice to put food on and forget about it. Slow cookers also allow us to cook many things we would normally have to use the oven for; what a relief in hot Texas weather! Some of these recipes are mine, many are ones I have collected over the years.

2 racks baby back ribs
2 packets (individual serving size) apple cider drink mix
1 package (1 1/4-oz) chili seasoning, mild
1 1/2 cups your favorite barbecue sauce
1/4 cup frozen apple juice concentrate
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1 tsp dried onion flakes

Preheat broiler.
Line a large baking sheet with foil; set aside.

Combine the cider drink mix and chile seasoning; set aside.

Cut ribs into serving-size pieces and dredge through the cider/chile mixture; place on the prepared baking sheet with the meat side up.  Broil approximately 10 minutes, turn, cook another 10 to 12 minutes to brown.

Place the ribs in a large slowcooker or crockpot, meat side up.

Combine the barbecue sauce, apple juice concentrate, vinegar, and onion flakes; pour over the ribs.  Cover pot and cook ribs on low for approximately 8 hours.

Yield: 10 to 12 servings
