Slow Cooker Country Style Ribs

2 bottles of barbecue sauce, whatever you like
1-1/2 cups Dr. Pepper or Cola, again whatever you like
2 tablespoons liquid smoke
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

Mix it all up in your slow cooker and add some meat! I use either 10 pounds of country style pork ribs OR 6 pounds of ribs and 4 pounds of chicken.

If you're using just ribs, cook 10 hours on low.
If you're using ribs and chicken, cook ribs for 4-5 hours, then add your chicken and cook for another 5-6 hours, for a total of 10 hours on low.

You can spice up the sauce any way you like. I've added green pepper and onion in the past, garlic is always good :) grill or cajun spices work well also. Enjoy!

Slow Cooker London Broil

We had this for dinner tonight and it turned out so yummy I just had to post the recipe! I've never been able to prepare a London Broil so it was tender and not dry, but I did it today :)

1 London Broil (mine was about 2 pounds)
2 cups hot black tea
2 cubes beef bouillon
10 potatoes, peeled and cut in half
1 small bag baby carrots
1 small head of cabbage, cut into chunks
1 onion, sliced
1 cup water
**Adjust amount of veggies to the size of your family - I made dinner for 5, including a teenage boy!

Season meat to your liking, or use a rub and wrap in plastic and refrigerate for an hour.

Pour 2 cups hot tea into slow cooker, drop in bouillon, add meat. Place carrots and potatoes on top of meat. Cover and cook on high for 2 hours.

Reduce heat to low. Continue to cook for 2-3 hours. Add cabbage and onion, pour 1 cup of water over everything. Cook for another 2-3 hours, depending on the size of your London Broil. My total cooking time was 6.5 hours.

That's it! Serve and enjoy!
