I tried these for dinner this past week and was very disappointed. I would have given them one star except that I suspect some of my disappointment was due to cook-error and not necessarily a bad recipe. I will say, though, that the amount of liquid in the slow cooker did not seem like enough to adequately cook the meat and leave it juicy.
I think the first issue we had was that my husband bought boneless country style ribs. And then I set my slow cooker on low for 9 hours. After 9 hours the cooker switches over to "warm" and, in this case, stayed there for another two hours. I have a feeling that "warm" on my slow cooker is "low" on everyone else's.
Overall, though, the meat was incredibly dry and flavorless. Again, whether this is due to the recipe, the fact that they were boneless, or the amount of time they spent in the slow cooker I don't know. I do know, though, that I prefer recipes that are as error-proof as possible and this certainly isn't one of them.
