Baby Back Ribs

Sunday night, the chef made one of my favorite Emeals so far. The ribs baby back pork ribs were incredibly tender and the meat fell off of the bones. We had extra couscous from Friday night's dinner, so we used it instead of brown rice side that was listed as the side. I wanted a little more green and veggies with this meal, so I added a side salad with items we already had.

You should definitely try this one. I recommend all the meals I post, but this one is really tasty, plus the chef said the ribs were easy to make. I can't wait until we make it again.

1 rack baby back pork ribs (about 2lbs)
1/2 cup low sodium soy sauce
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup dry sherry
1 Tbs minced fresh ginger
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp dried rosemary leaves
1 green onion, chopped

Cut ribs into three sections and arrange in a small (4-5 quart) slow cooker. Combine soy sauce, honey, sherry, ginger, garlic, and rosemary in small bowl, stirring with a whisk. Pour over ribs. Cover and cook on low 7hrs or until tender (turning occasionally if possible). Sprinkle with green onion before serving over couscous.
