We love ribs in this family – and not being able to eat tomatoes, we struggled at first to find a sauce that we loved, and so I’ve been experimenting and these are my favorite yet!
Ribs are a great food to have in the crockpot, and I created this recipe for Halloween night, as we’d be out Trick or Treating and I wouldn’t have time to cook. These ribs invited us back into the house, and were a great additional to our Halloween Spooky Meal – we called them Skeleton Ribs.
I particularly liked this recipe as I was able to hide Beets in the sauce, which typically my daughter won’t touch. Beets are high in immune-boosting vitamin C, fiber, and essential minerals like potassium – essential for healthy nerve and muscle function and manganese – good for your bones, liver, kidneys, and pancreas. Beets also can be used for detoxification and anti-inflammatory purposes, so a great food to have on Halloween to detox any candy that’s consumed!
