Ale-Sauced Pork Ribs and Vegetables PRINT
- YIELD: 4-6 servings
Yummy – pork was a bit dried out though – cooked it for the full 9 hours on low – maybe need to adjust the cooking time next time – also, was too lazy to make the gravy so still need to try that.
|2½ - 3||pounds bone-in pork country-style ribs|
|1||12 ounce bottle dark ale or stout or nonalcoholic beer|
|3||cloves garlic, minced|
|1||tablespoon finely shredded lemon peel|
|1||tablespoon dried rosemary, crushed|
|¼||teaspoon freshly ground pepper|
|8||small gold or red potatoes (8 oz. total)|
|12||ounces peeled fresh baby carrots|
|¼||cup cold water|
|Fresh Rosemary sprigs (optional)|

1. Place pork in a large self-sealing plastic bag set in a shallow dish. Add ale, garlic, lemon peel, dried rosemary, salt and pepper. Seal bag. Turn to coat. Refrigerate 4 hours or overnight, turning bag occasionally.
2. Place potatoes and carrots in bottom of 5- to 6-quart slow cooker. Transfer pork ribs to bed of carrots and potatoes. Pour ale mixture over all. Cover and cook on low-heat setting 8 to 9 hours or on high-heat setting 4 to 4-1/2 hours.
3. Remove pork and vegetables from cooker. Cover; keep warm. Pour cooking juices through fine mesh sieve set over a heat-proof bowl to strain. Measure 2 cups of cooking juices, adding water to make 2 cups, if necessary. Stir together water and cornstarch in medium saucepan. Add 2 cups strained juices. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly. Cook and stir 2 minutes more. Serve sauce with meat, vegetables, and radishes. Garnish with fresh rosemary and lemon peel. Makes 4 to 6 servings.
