Foody Friday

Maple Glazed Ribs

pork ribs (I used lamb ribs)
1 onion (quarterd)
1 carrot (thickly sliced)
2tbs vinegar
salt & pepper
1litre of boiling water

2 teaspoon english mustard
1 teaspoon allspice
2 tablespoon tomato puree (I just used 1tbs tomato paste)
2tbs brown sugar
125 mls Maple Syrup

Place the ribs, onion, carrot, vinegar salt and pepper and water into the slowcooker.  Cook on high for 5-7 hours. Remove Ribs from slow cooker (carefully as the meat will fall off the bone!) and transfer to a foil lined baking tray. Mix ingredients for the glaze with 150 mls of stock from the slowcooker. Spoon glaze over ribs and grill for 10-15 mins, turning once until brown and sticky.

These were DIVINE! and a happy change from my usual stews in the slowcooker.

Do you original readers of mine remember Foody Friday?
When I used to post a whole weeks worth of recipes?

Its been ages and I thought I would bring it back.  Recycling the trend.

The reason it fell by the wayside is I kept forgetting to photograph my food. And I got stuck in the boring routine of cooking the same Lasagne each sunday, the same fried rice, the same stirfry, the same stew, etc. Also we were trying to save money as we no longer had international students living with us. There went my $250 a week shopping money!!

Anyway The Mr so kindly bought me a slowcooker recipe book for Mother's Day. How sweet of him! He did it cause he heard me lamenting online to a friend who wrote a post about How much she LOVES her slowcooker. I said I don't know how to make anything in the slow cooker that doesnt taste THE SAME everytime because I was always using the same vegetables and same tomato base!!

Anyway a long intro into what I will be doing with foody friday. I thought I will put in some of the recipes I like the best from my slow cooker ones for Winter!

Perfect time for slowcooker meals.
