New Slow Cooker with BBQ Ribs and Bonus Pulled Pork (NSFV)

3년 전

After excessive drooling and coveting the food I've seen on Steemit, I decided to buy a slow cooker and see if I could produce something edible.

This is a quickie including a recipe(ish), robbed from inspired by UNDIE'S KITCHEN.

I ordered a Bella Multi-Function Cooker. It's a slow cooker and pressure cooker in one. Yay. What's not to love about superfast stews and sloooow meat? It is really easy to use. I looked at the instructions a little bit but they're hardly even necessary coz all you need to know is written by the buttons on the front :D

The first thing I decided to make was BBQ pork ribs. Here are the ingredients but I also added a good slug of shop-bought BBQ Sauce to the mix too.

I mixed the ingredients together into a thick paste. Sorry, I don't measure or weigh. Things are done by eye at my age :P

I smushed the marinade/sauce all over the ribs and let them sit around in it for an hour or so before getting the Bella involved.

All I had to do was line the ribs, standing up like soldiers, around the rim of the Bella, stick the lid on and set the timer to 7 hours.

When the time was up, I took them out, slapped them on the grill pan (or 'broiler' for US people) and brushed some more sauce across. They took a few minutes each side to bubble up and get a bit charred.


The meat literally fell off the bones. They were juicy, full of flavour, and the marrow was totally suckable. They were heavenly, even though I say so myself.

But, I made 3 main mistakes:

  1. I didn't cook enough of them. They all vanished in minutes!
  2. I think they'd have been okay after 5-6 hours slow cooking rather than the 7!
  3. Unfortunately, because of the long cooking time, I completely forgot I was going to write a blog for Steemit and didn't take any 'after' pics. Oops. :P

To compensate for this, here's a picture of the pulled pork I made the next day, slathered on a white bread butty :D

Needless to say, I'm thrilled with my new Bella and think we're going to be on good terms for a very long time.

Thanks for popping by.

Love, Anj xx
