Freezer Crock-pot Pork Ribs

Freezer Crock Pot Pork Ribs are indescribably moist, tasty and beyond easy to make. Perfect for the middle of the week or a Sunday dinner.I’ve been training my puppy Molly. She has never been on a leash, so it’s been an experience. The biggest problem has been that she’s never worn a collar. I know. I know. What was I thinking?

She’s so pathetic when I put the collar on. She goes all stiff and won’t move. We’re going slowly with it, putting it on her for 10 minutes at a time. I give her a doggy treat afterward but so far, she ain’t accepting this collar thing. Wish me luck!

Now about these delicious pork ribs…

I can’t even begin to describe these ribs! My hubby and I argued over the last one .. and he won. Darn it. They are unbelievably moist, very messy and beyond tasty.

Fix them immediately or freeze them for a later meal.

When I started freezer cooking, I made a list of foods that I wanted to freeze. Throwing ribs and sauce with some onions in a bag seems genius instead of just tossing the ribs straight into the freezer. Why didn’t I think of that years ago!

    That looks amazing! I love my slow cooker and the husband is taking over some future cooking duties due to our work schedules so this likes an easy meal that I can prep and have him put together. Thank you!

      Hi Jenni – I’m totally loving this concept of cooking and wondering why I didn’t do it before! Thank you for stopping by ~Stacy

  2. Jen@topateplate says: March 20, 2014

    • Stacy says: March 20, 2014

      Thank you.. Those ribs are delicious! I think we’ll be having them again this weekend *grin* ~Cheers, Stacy

  3. Karen @ From the Garden table says: March 21, 2014

    So delicious looking! I also love the idea of putting it all together into the freezer (I’m slowly catching on to that too!) Thanks for posting at “Pin Me Link party” !

      Karen.. freezer meal cooking is wonderful! I can’t believe I waited so long to give it whirl. ~Have a blessed weekend, Stacy

    We don’t eat pork but I like the idea of placing the contents in a bag and then freezing it – saves so much time! Great post.

    • Stacy says: March 22, 2014

      It’s definitely a winner of an idea… The meat is so tender & flavorful. It works for chicken, beef, turkey, etc. ~Have a good weekend, Stacy

    BTW – Thanks for sharing and linking up this recipe with us at the #WWDParty. Have a wonderful week ahead.

    Oh wow, great sauce for these ribs. They must soak up all that goodness in the freezer. Thank you for sharing at Simple Supper Tuesday.

    • Stacy says: March 27, 2014

      I decided that they must marinate while they are freezing. I’m now on a quest to try this method with a bunch of my recipes. Can’t wait to share the results. Thanks for stopping by ~Stacy 😉

  7. CJ Huang says: March 28, 2014

    Great hint using the blender pitcher to help hold the bag! Freezer marinating is definitely one of my favorite ways of adding more flavor. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by Five Friday Finds last week. Hope you can make it again this week. 🙂

    • Stacy says: March 29, 2014

      Thanks CJ, the bag in the blender is a great help! Wish I could take credit for coming up with it but sadly, I read it on another blog 😀
