Most evenings I’m looking for quick and easy, on the go dinner recipes. So my family always appreciates when I put a little extra thought and perceived effort into meal prep. These Honey and Garlic Pork Ribs a great way to make the fam feel special, but they’re still easy and low maintenance too.
I love that I can throw them in the oven and forget about them for a couple of hours. Gives me plenty of time to check a few more things off my list without worrying about burning dinner.
And they taste like you’ve slaved away in the kitchen all day.
You could also start this dish in the slow cooker and finish the last steps with the sauce in the oven.
Or you could do it all in the slow cooker.
Personally, I like the finish you get from the oven. There’s something about baked on, sticky bbq sauce that takes ribs from just so so to yum yum!
I also love that the sauce for these Honey and Garlic Pork Ribs is homemade. That means it’s minimally processed and frugal to boot. Of course you can also tweak it if you like. Amp up the flavor with more garlic or sprinkle in a little spicy chili powder to compliment the honey sweetness.
