Slow Cooker Orange Barbecue Ribs
I've said it before, I love meals that I can dump in the slow cooker and go about my day while it cooks. This is certainly another one of those dishes. Barbecue ribs are one of those comfort foods everyone loves and to be able to make them with such little effort is even better!
I discovered this meal in an old church cookbook. I love those things, you can always find good tried and true recipes from others in your community. I really liked the addition of frozen orange juice to the sauce. It was just enough to taste but not overpowering. After a few changes, I got the sauce just perfect! If you don't care for orange juice you can simply omit it or just reduce to amount you put in. Give these a try and be sure to let me know what you think! Enjoy!
