Sweet and Sour Crockpot Ribs

Sweet and sour crockpot ribs are a delicious and easy-to-make dish that is perfect for a hearty meal. To make sweet and sour crockpot ribs, start by seasoning your ribs with salt, pepper, and any other spices you like.

Place the ribs in the slow cooker and pour a mixture of sweet and sour sauce over them. You can use store-bought sauce or make your own by combining ketchup, brown sugar, vinegar, soy sauce, and pineapple juice.

Cook the ribs on low heat for 6-8 hours, or until they are tender and falling off the bone. If you like, you can baste the ribs with the sauce halfway through cooking to ensure they are coated evenly.

Once the ribs are cooked, you can serve them with rice or mashed potatoes and garnish with chopped green onions or sesame seeds for an extra burst of flavor. These sweet and sour crockpot ribs are sure to be a hit with your family and friends!
