Apple-Bourbon Country-Style Pork Ribs

Old-fashioned cooking apples such as Rome, MacIntosh, Northern Spy, or Jonathan taste perfect with these country-style ribs. Tart eating apples, such as Gripps Pink and Granny Smith, make the ribs delicious, too.

Apple-Bourbon Country-Style Pork Ribs

Directions

  1. Season ribs with salt and pepper; place in a 6-quart slow cooker. In a medium bowl whisk together jelly, bourbon, brown sugar, barbecue sauce, vinegar, and the 1/2 teaspoon thyme. Pour bourbon mixture over ribs in the cooker.
  2. Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 3 hours or on high-heat setting for 1-1/2 hours.
  3. Add apples to slow cooker. Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 3 to 4 hours more or on high-heat setting for 1-1/2 to 2 hours more or until apples and ribs are tender.
  4. To serve, transfer ribs to a serving platter. Strain cooking liquid and serve with ribs.

From the Test Kitchen

For easy cleanup:

Line your slow cooker with a disposable slow cooker liner. Add ingredients as directed in recipe. Once ribs are finished cooking, remove the ribs from your slow cooker and simply dispose of the liner. Do not lift or transport the disposable liner with food inside.

This meal was a real disappointment. It wasn't bad. It just wasn't that good.

Can I cook these in a slow oven instead of a slow cooker? How would I adjust timing etc? It looks soo yummy

We really liked it. I reduced the sauce in a saute pan, added a tablespoon of flour to thicken it just a bit and a dash of salt. I poured the sauce over the ribs before serving. With mashed potatoes & steamed asparagus spears. Beautiful & yummy! Thank you.

Was really looking forward to this dinner. Even if I had read the last review I would have tried it. Sounds that good! Trust me ...Don't WASTE good pork & Bourbon. Not worth the time it takes to put it in the pot. So Disapointed. If you do decide to try it. you can salvage your ribs by removing them from the swill in the crock pot and SMOTHER them with your favorite BBQ Sauce. cook in oven or bbq. Will not kill the Vinager taste or smell but is palatible.

I had such hope for this recipes but it just didn't live up. I only had 2lbs of country ribs on hand so I halved everything else. I resisted making any alterations since it was my first (and only) time making this. The apples were falling apart and mushy. I used granny smiths. My hubby asked that I not make this again. We ate it with steamed white rice which helped the flavor quite a bit, but otherwise it was just meh. Nothing special.
