    I put the ribs in the crock pot and cooked on low for 3 hours. Then I removed all the liquid and put the ribs back in and then added the cranberry mix. They came out tender and flavorful with a nice sauce as opposed to a thin liquid.

    Really easy and tasty. Doubled the recipe and I'm glad I did because we want this again tonight. One suggestion is use the whole cranberry sauce. Not just the jelly kind. It was nice to have while tidbits of cranberry to pick up with the meat.

    Nice change from ribs and kraut . Will make again. My partner thought it was very tasty. I bought a low price cranberry sauce, would buy better brand next time.
