 Sweet and Savory Ribs
My husband, Randy, and I love barbecued ribs, but with our busy schedules, we rarely have time to fire up the grill. We simply let the slow cooker do the work for us. By the time we get home from a crazy day at work, the ribs are tender, saucy and ready to devour. —Kandy Bingham, Green River, Wyoming
