Fighting off a bad one from last night? Know you’ll be down for a while but you’ll eventually want amazing hot food? Grab your slow cooker, we’re making sweet and sour ribs.
What you’ll need:
3 lbs. trimmed Pork Ribs
Sweet & Sour Sauce
2 C Brown Sugar1/4 C All-Purpose Flour
1/3 C Water
1/3 C Vinegar
2 T Soya Sauce
2 T Ketchup
1/4 T Ginger
1/4 T Garlic
What you’ll need:
Take your ribs and chop them into bite sized morsels. *If you really want to plan ahead, do this the night before and have it sitting in the fridge, ready to go.*
Put them in the crock pot and set them aside. Sauce time.
Mix the brown sugar and flour in your sauce pan dry to get all the clumps. If you don’t do this you’ll have random flour balls in your sauce (learn from my errors).
Add the water and stir until it’s an even mixture. The more your stir now, the less likely you are to have a lumpy sauce.
Set the element to high and stir in the rest of the ingredients. Continue to stir while the sauce comes to a boil.
Let the sauce boil for 2-3 minutes until it’s nice and thick, stirring the whole time (seriously, if you stop stirring your sauce will burn and clean up will be one of your all-time worst kitchen experiences).
Pour the sauce over the ribs and put the lid on it. Now, time for the toughest decision of your lazy day; will you be hungry in 4 or 8 hours? If you want ribs in 4, set the crock pot to high and timer for 4 hours. If you’re feeling more sloth-like, set the crock pot to low and timer for 8 hours.
Now, grab a Gatorade and go back to your dark abyss.
4 – 8 hours later:
Hopefully in this time span, someone noticed your ribs and made a side dish. It doesn’t really matter though, because ribs.
These are a go-to for me. Feel free to make them a part of your hangover routine.
