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.Jump to Recipe

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!

  1. 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!

    • 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 ;)

  2. 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. :)
