I cooked country pork ribs in the slow cooker Sun night. I added garlic powder, onion flakes, pepper, worchestershire & cream of mushroom between the layers. They were good but a little bland. What can I add to the leftovers tonight to add more flavor? Thank you.

How about adding some of your favorite BBQ sauce.

You could add ketchup, brown sugar, vinegar.

is there enough sauce to doctor up??- like remove the ribs- and add maybe molassas- or hot ssuce to the"gravy" part - then add the ribs back in & bake for a little bit??

Hi, if you like a bit more spicy --- why not add a wee bit greek or natural yogurt with some finely sliced ginger and a touch lemon then heat a bit. serve with some rice with a touch of sesame oil. cheers.

DH wanted a brown gravy type dish rather than BBQ. I was sick so was lazy & used cream of mushroom. They were falling apart & still in plenty of gravy. He wants the leftovers over noodles tonight. I just pulled off maybe a cup of solid fat from the top & put the crock back in on warm.

I put the crock pot insert back in the slow cooker on warm to loosen the gravy/sauce so I can pull the meat out without it falling completely apart. I have sour cream but only fruited yogurt.

Hi, pull the meat apart and shred in sauce - a little fat has flavour -- sour cream should be fine.!!! remove from slow cooker and thicken over stove -- do noodles . But I leave to yoo. Now forget what I said earlier but why not cook noodles add to sauce in pan and add parmesan or other cheese. Mix all together. May work but I leave idea to you. cheers.

Hi Don! Thank you for your suggestions. I'm baking bread so I added a head of garlic to the oven to roast. Might try the ginger.

Sorry if this sound stupid but did you add Salt? Sounds like it might need a touch. Good luck!

Hi Patty Cakes! No salt since I thought there would be enough in the soup. Maybe it could use a pinch. It is missing that depth of flavor that I can't explain. Thank you!

Pork loin roast atop a seasoned bed of sauerkraut with onion, cranberries, and apple makes a great main dish for fall.

Pork always makes me think of sauerkraut. Here is a recipe that has the cream of mushroom soup in it, I wouldn't add more soup, but you could pull from the recipe what you want.

Thank you suesee3! I wish DH would eat kraut or cranberries

You need to kick up the "Umami" or meat flavor. Add 1 1/2 tsp salt, or 3 tblspoons soy sauce. For pork, its always good to add herbs to the ribs BEFORE you cook them. Try a dry rub (you can find recipes here on the site).

More S+P would be the first thing...its not going to taste like much without these. That cream of mushroom sort of slows these down.
