Baby Back Ribs & Red Potatoes with Carrots

These are the easiest way to cook ribs. Rub 'em and throw them in the crock-pot for a few hours. This was by far the best Rib and Potato dinner my mom has ever cooked. The ribs fall off the bone they were so tender. The potatoes were seasoned to perfection and the carrots and onions were added in to lock all the flavors together!

Please enjoy~

EZ crock-pot BBQ Baby backs!

1 pkg. baby back ribs, cut into eating portions... rub both sides of the ribs with garlic salt, season salt and pepper. Place in a crock-pot. Add a bottle of BBQ sauce. Top with thinly sliced onion. Cook 6-8 hours. Mmmm so tender.

EZ Red Potatoes

6 red potatoes, cut into half

3 carrots cleaned and chopped into 1" sections

1/2 small onion chopped

3T. vegetable oil

Salt and pepper

Wash and cut potatoes in half. If you wish for a decoration I peel one strip down the middle of the potato. Place cut side down in a greased pan. ( I just use Pam). Brush the potatoes with the oil. Add onion and carrots. Add salt and pepper to taste. Bake for 1 hour at 350* or until tender.
