Bourbon Country Style Pork Ribs with Honey Crisp Apples (Crock Pot)

Bourbon Country Style Pork Ribs with Honey Crisp Apples www.choppingsticks.com

I’m not quite sure what happened when Nick asked for Bourbon for his birthday.  The dude doesn’t even drink and hates alcohol!  What is going on with my husband?!  But wow am I happy his sister, Stephie, bought him a bottle.  I wanted to cook with it so the less he drinks, the more I can cook with!  Sweet!

I love cooking with country style pork ribs because the cut is SO easy to make tender and delicious.   Honey crisp apples are in stores now!  RUN!  Go get some and cook with them ASAP.  They are absolutely delicious.  What a happy surprise when I went shopping and found them in the produce aisle.  I think of fall when I see honey crisps.  And fall makes me think of comfort food.  And comfort food makes me think of the crock pot… not entirely sure why, but I’m going with it.

Crock pots are a gift from God.  For real.  YES!  No fuss dinner.  That’s my kind of night.  Perfect for days when the kids have to go to ball practice and I am their driver… and maid… and chef.  At least one of my jobs was super duper easy.

I hope you enjoy this smokey and sweet meal.  I served it over rice because I love rice.  LOVE rice.
