We love Apricot Chicken...
Use Saucy Susan Spicy Peach/Apricot Sauce on chicken and pork all the time!
Yummm! It's good sheet!

Caribbeanscout,

I just recently started playing with a crockpot. Though your chicken and bean chili looks great, and I will try it, please tell me why the beans don't get mushy after all those hours. They are already cooked coming out of the can. I would think that they would turn to mush after eight hours or so. Other than what I just asked about it, it sounds great and I am looking forward to trying it. (even if my beans turn mushy)

i'm no bean expert, so don't quote me on this, but the navy and black beans i think are firmer beans and therefore when cooked has the tendency to remain intact. i think red beans are softer beans and that would most likely turn into mush. also, if not canned beans you'd have to soak the beans anyway to soften them; the canned beans are simply a convenience. this chili recipe is good and mushy-free. and it freezes nicely.

I made your jerk chicken recipe yesterday - the entire family agreed it was a repeat meal! Because I was cooking for 4, I doubled the chicken and the sauce... the sauce ended up being a little too thin so I removed the majority when it was finished in the crockpot and reduced it on the stove. Yum yum. Thanks so much for posting!

Ale-sauced Pork Ribs & Veggies. [Re: caribbeanscout]
      #1093201 - 01/06/10 02:59 PM (151.203.114.134)

Ale-Sauced Pork Ribs and Vegetables

Cook: 8 hours low, 4 hours high


Ingredients

2-1/2 to 3 lb. bone-in pork country-style ribs
1 12-oz. bottle dark ale or stout or nonalcoholic beer
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 Tbsp. finely shredded lemon peel
1 Tbsp. dried rosemary, crushed
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. freshly ground pepper
8 small gold or red potatoes (8 oz. total)
12 oz. peeled fresh baby carrots
1/4 cup cold water
2 Tbsp. cornstarch
Fresh Rosemary sprigs (optional)
Shredded lemon peel (optional)

Directions
1. Place pork in a large self-sealing plastic bag set in a shallow dish. Add ale, garlic, lemon peel, dried rosemary, salt and pepper. Seal bag. Turn to coat. Refrigerate 4 hours or overnight, turning bag occasionally.

2. Place potatoes and carrots in bottom of 5- to 6-quart slow cooker. Transfer pork ribs to bed of carrots and potatoes. Pour ale mixture over all. Cover and cook on low-heat setting 8 to 9 hours or on high-heat setting 4 to 4-1/2 hours.

3. Remove pork and vegetables from cooker. Cover; keep warm. Pour cooking juices through sieve set over a heat-proof bowl to strain. Measure 2 cups of cooking juices, adding water to make 2 cups, if necessary. Stir together water and cornstarch in medium saucepan. Add 2 cups meat juices. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly. Cook and stir 2 minutes more. Serve sauce with meat, vegetables. Garnish with fresh rosemary and lemon peel. Makes 4 to 6 servings.
(You could add some small peeled onions to the crockpot, too. I also make this with chicken thighs instead of ribs.)

Looks good, but definitely not low carb or low calorie!

Mom used to make spare ribs over sauerkraut in the oven. Anybody ever do this in a crock pot? Recipe?

Winter time makes me crave things like that.

Thanks Brian,

This is really close, no beer but something else was used to juice it up, maybe apple cider.

I think I will try it Sat. Ms Seaside and Lil Seaside won't eat it, probably run me out of the house for the smell, but hey, It's all about me!!! Right?
