I had a very busy day on Saturday. I wanted to make a good dinner, but didn't have the time or temperament for slicing, stirring, simmering, and such.
The cute little Nesco was a wedding gift from the Marshfield aunts and uncles. The size is such that it doubles as a pretty good-sized slow cooker. It's seen a fair bit more action than usual so far this year.
I had purchased two varieties of Howling Wolf BBQ Sauce to try, and "The Original" was howling "ribs" to me. The other variety I have is Cranberry Orange and I think I'll be doing some of this in a few days with a little of that.
The ribs. Country-style. I rubbed half of them with Chicago Steak Seasoning from Penzey's that I had in the cupboard. The other half were seasoned simply with salt and cracked pepper.
I roasted them in the regular oven, first, for 15 minutes on each side at 400F.
I popped them into the roaster.
Poured on the sauce and cooked 'em slowly for 5-6 hours ('til DH came home). The meat was falling right off the bone! In the end, it was impossible to determine which ribs were heavily or lightly seasoned -- they were all delicious! The sauce was excellent -- rich and flavorful, with exactly the right combo of ingredients for the perfect kick.
It was so delicious and I was so hungry that I didn't even take pictures. Those are leftovers that I had for lunch the next day. Cold. Nom. So good!!
