- Use beef ribs rather than pork if preferred.
- This recipe makes a ton of yummy ribs. If you do not plan on using them for leftover during the same week, freeze them. Once you defrost them, you can reheat them in the oven or microwave. If reheating in the oven, cover them with foil and reheat at 300 degrees F for about 20 minutes.
Make Ahead: Combine the spices the night before or over the weekend and keep in an airtight container.
Nutrition Nugget: You may not believe this, but Lesley decided to eat the rind of the orange after it had cooked in the slow cooker and it was REALLY yummy. Chris, her not so adventurous husband, even like it. Next time, she is putting in two oranges for the extra rind. There is not nutrition analysis of orange rind but I bet it is packed with fiber.
