As a culinary student I am always looking for good recipes to try. I must say this is by far the best recipe I've found for spare ribs! I did do a few things different though, I did not boil the ribs before browning them. I found that it was not needed. I did also add a little more Worcestershire sauce and beef stock to add a little more flavor. Other than that this is an awesome recipe! TRY IT!
Never again in a slow cooker....too greasy.
I didn't boil the ribs in water, but did brown them with garlic olive oil. I transfered all of that to a slow cooker. Next I made the sauce but I added two tablespoons of horseradish and 1/2 cup red wine. I let it cook on high for 4 hours. It was delicious. I'm saving the extra sauce to add beef and mushrooms to serve over noodles.
This came out good! I had some spareribs and NO clue how to cook them, so here comes AR ;) The combination of ingredients (and the fact that it's unrated) worried me a little, but I went with it and I'm very pleasantly surprised! I generally don't like nutmeg in savory dishes, but after the long cooking time, you can't pick it out amongst the other ingredients - everything blends nicely so that you can't pick out any one flavor. Very good recipe, thanks!
I made these for my family, and they came out delicious! The only thing I changed was that after boiling them, I baked them at 250 degrees for 2 hours covered then 300 for an hour then the last 45 mins, I uncovered and baked at 350. They fell off the bone. Even my picky six year old loved them.
I used country spare ribs, wonderful recipe.I served it with rice.
Awesome shortribs! Super moist and great flavor. I did not have beef broth, so I used vegetable broth. I cooked them at 250 for 3 hrs and 320 for 45 min.
This is a 5-star pork rib recipe. I made the sauce exactly w/ no modifications, and followed Staschy's general method for cooking and the ribs fell off the bone in wonderful tenderness when done. Here's how: boiled the ribs in large pot of water 45 minutes. Made sauce exactly in dutch oven. Didn't brown the ribs, just put them directly in with sauce once sauce was made. Put lid on dutch oven, cooked 2 hours covered at 250, 1 hour covered at 300, 45 minutes uncovered at 350. The ribs fell off bone as took them out with tongs, had to use a spatula to support underneath to get the rack on a plate w/o meat falling off further. The sauce is a wonderful, rich, vinegar-based sauce. It was effortless to separate the meat from bone, shredded it, then plunged eat bite into the sauce before eating. My 9-y.o. daughter said she could literally eat this dish every meal for the rest of her life. :-) I would pay good money at a restaurant for ribs this delicious, tender and tasty. Make them this way and you'll say the same.
