Hey all. Although Fall isn’t quite here yet in North Carolina, I thought I’d pull out the old crock pot and try out something new. Barbecue pork rib tips and cauliflower mash!
Crock pots are awesome. The whole idea of just throwing ingredients in, setting it, and forgetting it is probably one of the best things out there. This is especially true for those that have busy days and not enough time to spend working on a meal in the kitchen.
Well I saw a pack of these pork rib tips on sale at my local grocery
and I grabbed out my crock pot.
I threw it in with some garlic powder, black pepper, and my mustard vinegar based barbecue sauce (see below for info).
Covered it, set it, and forgot it (not literally).
After about 8 hours on low, it was falling off the bone with some gorgeous color on it.
I served it up with some Cauliflower Mash (which I will post the recipe up soon) and it turned out to be the perfect complement to the rib tips.
Served with a little extra sauce artfully placed, and there you have it.
2 Lbs Pork Rib Tips
1 tbsp Garlic Powder
1 Tbsp Black Pepper
1/2 Cup BBQ Sauce of choice (I used a mix of mustard, Walden farms thick and spicy, and apple cider vinegar with info below)
- Spray inside of crock pot with non-stick cooking spray.
- Rub rib tips with garlic powder and black pepper.
- Put rib tips in crock pot and pour sauce over.
- Cover crock pot, set to low, and let cook for about 8 hours.
- After 8 hours, remove and drizzle rib tips with juices. Serve with a side of sauce.
This nutrition information would only be accurate if you used the sauce mixture I did which equates to no extra calories or carbs.
A simple version for the sauce would be:
- 1/2 cup Mustard
- 1/2 cup Walden’s Thick and Spicy Barbecue Sauce
- 1/4 cup Apple Cider Vinegar
