Finger-licking-good ribs are flavored with a sauce that's sweet, spicy and tangy all at the same time.

Ingredients

2
teaspoons ground cumin
2
teaspoons chili powder
2
teaspoons packed brown sugar
3
to 3 1/2 lb pork loin back ribs (about 2 racks)
1
can (16 oz) whole berry cranberry sauce
1
jar (12 oz) beef gravy
2
tablespoons cider vinegar
2
tablespoons packed brown sugar
1
teaspoon salt
1/2
teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
2
cloves garlic, finely chopped

Directions

  • 1 Set oven control to broil; heat 15 minutes. Line broiler pan with foil.
  • 2 In small bowl, mix cumin, chili powder and 2 teaspoons brown sugar. Rub evenly over racks of ribs. Place ribs on rack in broiler pan. Broil with tops 4 to 6 inches from heat 10 to 15 minutes, turning once, until browned. Cool slightly. Cut into individual ribs.
  • 3 Place ribs in 3 1/2- to 4-quart slow cooker. Reserve half of the cranberry sauce. In medium bowl, mix remaining cranberry sauce and remaining ingredients; pour over ribs.
  • 4 Cover; cook on High heat setting 2 hours 30 minutes to 3 hours or until ribs are tender.

Expert Tips

For smaller pieces, ask the butcher to cut the racks across the bones, especially if the ribs are longer than 3 1/2 to 4 inches. Racks of ribs will vary in size, depending on the size of the animal.

Serve with chunks of blue cheese and celery sticks.
