Crock Pot Apple Butter BBQ Spareribs

Remember last fall when I made Apple Butter in the crock pot?!?!  Well I found a new use for it with this recipe for ribs.  I made the apple butter in the crock pot and now I'm making the ribs in the crock pot with a recipe I found in Gooseberry Patch's new 101 Super Easy Slow Cooker Recipes.    Apple Butter BBQ Spareribs has a sweet and savory flavor that makes these ribs finger licking good.  And with only a couple of ingredients and 8 hours in the crock pot you will have a meal that you just want to sink your teeth into.

If you aren't a fan of onions, like me, then you can use 1 T. of dried onion flakes in stead of an actual onion. This will give you the slightest bit of flavor without using the actual onion.  

4 lbs. pork spareribs
salt & pepper to taste
16 oz. jar apple butter
18 oz. jar bottle BBQ sauce
1 onion.
1. Sprinkle ribs with salt and pepper.
2. Place ribs on rimmed baking sheet.
3. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes; drain.
4. Meanwhile, blend together apple butter and barbecue sauce in a bowl; set aside.
5. Slice ribs into serving-size pieces and place in a slow cooker.
6. Top with onion; drizzle sauce mixture over all.
7. Cover and cook on low setting for 8 hours.
Makes 4 to 6 servings.

(If you use my onion flake idea just stir those in with the sauces.)
