Apple Butter BBQ Spare Ribs (crock pot style)

Comment on this recipe

The longer they are cooked, the more “fall off the bone” tender they will be! For a change, try this with a big roast (pork or beef) but in place of the apple butter try apricot preserves. Especially good with the pork. This is great shredded and served on rolls!

Ingredients

4 pounds spare ribs
Salt and pepper (optional)
1 onion, cut into chunks
1 jar (16 ounces) apple butter
1 bottle (20 ounces) BBQ sauce of choice

Instructions

Salt and pepper the ribs, optional. Place the ribs in broiler, frying pan or grill and brown well, about 30 minutes. Drain any fat. Slice ribs into serving pieces and place in crock pot. Add the onion, apple butter and BBQ sauce over the ribs and cook on low for at least 8 hours.
