my freezer space is limited. you have no idea how much i day dream about one day having a deep freeze. so to be able to add more things to the freezer something had to come up. that items some pork ribs. looking at what else i could use up i saw i had potatoes and carrots….perfect i’ll make my ale ribs. now i tweaked the recipe just a little because i had no stout beer on hand but i still had some pumpkin. taking a risk i used it. the pumpkin could have made it fantastic or completely ruined it. luckily it was the first. deliciousness in my belly!
WHAT YOU NEED
2 1/2 to 3 lb bone-in pork country-style ribs
1 12oz bottle of dark ale or stout
3 cloves of garlic, minced
1 Tbsp shredded lemon peel
1 Tbsp dried rosemary
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
8 small read potatoes
12 oz peeled baby carrots
1/4 cup water
1. marinate pork in the ale, garlic, lemon peel, rosemary, salt and pepper in a plastic bag for 4 hours to over night.
2. place potatoes and carrots in the bottom of a 5-6 quart slow cooker. place ribs on top of potatoes and carrots, pour ale mixture on top. cook on low for 8-9 hours or high for 4-4 1/2.
3. remove meat and vegetables. if you like create a gravy with 2 cups of the ale mixture and the cornstarch.
