Tangy Slow Cooker Country-Style Ribs
1 large onion, sliced
2 lb boneless country style pork loin ribs
1 c hot water
1/4 c sugar
3 T red wine vinegar
2 T soy sauce
1 T tomato paste (recipe calls for ketchup, but I don't have any!)
1/2 t black pepper
1/2 t salt
1/2 t garlic powder
Arrange the onion slices in the bottom of the slow cooker. Put the ribs on top. Mix together the rest of the ingredients and pour over the ribs. Cover and cook while you're at work (6-8 hours on low or 3-4 hours on high).
Would I make this recipe again? Yes, I think so. It was a bit sweet for my tastes, so I'd cut or eliminate the sugar. The recipe also called for a dash of Tabasco, but I didn't see what that would for the taste in that volume of food. Leaving out the pepper and adding 1 t of Penzey's Black & Red might be more like it.
