Sweet & Sour Slow-Cooked Ribs {Archived Post}

This post was originally from July 4, 2011. It is still one of my favourite meals and I have never perfected bbq ribs on a barbeque so the slow cooker is still my main way of getting fall off the bone goodness. Enjoy!

This recipe is one that I made up because I love the taste of BBQ, but have never owned one.  I don't love the over-sweetened taste of jarred BBQ sauces though.  So I always try to cut the sweetness by adding a little vinegar (acid), or a hint of lemon (sour).  This will give a more complex flavour.  Make people think more is going on in the dish, without really being a complicated recipe.
