SLOW COOKER RIBS, POTATOES AND SAUERKRAUT
Even if you aren’t a big sauerkraut fan I think you’ll love this. I rinse and drain the sauerkraut, so it’s a mild flavor. The entire meal is delicious!
IN1 rack pork baby back ribs
1 white onion, sliced
2 Tbsp. cooking oil
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1 tsp. dried thyme
3 garlic cloves
2 lbs. sliced red potatoes
16 oz. sauerkraut, rinsed and drained
1 cup chicken broth
SLOW COOKER SIZE:
6-quart or larger
Remove the membrane off the back of the ribs by sticking a finger under it in the middle of the ribs, life up and pull. It may not come off in one piece. You can see how I remove this in the video.
Preheat the oven to Broil.
Cut the ribs into single rib pieces. Place the cut onion onto a baking sheet. Add the ribs on top of the onion. Drizzle over the oil. Sprinkle over the salt, pepper and thyme over the ribs. Add the garlic cloves.
Place the baking sheet into the oven under the broiler. Leave in the oven until the ribs are slightly browned. Mine took about 10 minutes. Keep an eye on them so they don’t burn.
Add the sliced potatoes to the slow cooker. Add the contents of the baking sheet on top of the potatoes. Drain and rinse the sauerkraut if desired. Add the sauerkraut on top of everything.
Pour over the chicken broth.
Cover and cook on HIGH for 5 hours or for 7-8 on low.
Serve and Enjoy!
