Crockpot Country Style Pork Ribs

One of our favorite meat dishes are bar-b-que pork ribs. Instead of firing up the grill or the big smoker, I make mine in the crockpot. Everyone loves them when I make it. So I am preparing these for dinner tonight.

Crockpot B-B-Q Country-Style Pork Ribs
4.5 lbs. Country-style pork ribs
1 onion sliced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/3 c. apple jelly
2/3 c. bar-b-que sauce

Spray a 4-6qt. crockpot with Pam or other non-stick cooking spray. Place ribs, onion and garlic into crockpot.

Cover & cook on LOW for 8-10 hours.

Once cooking time has elapsed drain juices and discard onion and garlic. Place ribs back into crockpot. In a small bowl combine apple jelly and bar-b-que sauce. Brush mixture over ribs coating well.

Place cover back on crockpot and cook on HIGH for about 30 minutes or until sauce has made a glaze over meat.

Impossible Cheeseburger Pie

This recipe from General Mills, Inc. is one that I grew up on. It is so easy and tasty.

1 lb. ground beef
1-1/2 c. diced onion
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1-1/2 c. milk
3 eggs
3/4 c. biscuit baking mix
1 c. shredded cheese

Preheat oven to 400* Grease a deep dish pie plate with non-stick cooking spray.

In a medium skillet brown beef and onions until meat is no longer pink and onions are translucent. Drain fat. Stir in salt & pepper.

In a small mixing bowl combine eggs, milk & biscuit mix. Whisk until smooth.

Pour meat into greased pie plate.

Pour biscuit mixture over meat. Place pie plate on a cookie sheet and bake for 25 minutes.

Remove from oven and top with shredded cheese. Place back into oven and bake for an additional 5-10 minutes, or until cheese is melted and pie is cooked through.

Remove from oven and let coll for 5 minutes before slicing to serve.
