I have had my eye on this recipe for quite some time. The combination of maple syrup and pork ribs sounded real good to me. I needed to get some Christmas shopping done so decided it was a great time to utilize my slow cooker again. This recipe is a little on the sweet side because of the maple syrup, but it is still really good. I was able to find some real lean pork ribs and as a result there was not much fat in the juices so I turned it into gravy for the mashed potatoes. Like with many slow cooker recipes the pork ribs were so tender they melt in your mouth. Depending on how your slow cooker performs you should have 6 or 7 hours to go about your business and get done with what you have to get done before attending to the rest of dinner.
If you are in the mood for something different, and good, give this Slow Cooker Maple Pork Ribs Recipe a try. Enjoy
