When I was growing up we would have a Shelton (my maiden name) family reunion every summer. We would camp out for a weekend, and eat really well!
My grandpa's pork ribs were always my favorite. Everyone looked forward to the rib dinner. He cooked them in a dutch oven. I know dutch oven cooking can be a lot of work, but promise me you'll try these at least once in a dutch oven. You can't beat it! As much as I'd love to, I don't cook these in a dutch oven every time I make them. My boys devour these, so we make them quite frequently. My crock pot does the job for our everyday ribs.
The sauce for these ribs has three ingredients (just like my smoothie and homemade Oreos). I buy country style boneless pork ribs, and put 1 chopped onion, Catalina dressing, and barbecue sauce (I like Sweet Baby Rays) on them. That's it. I tell you, these are divine! The flavor is amazing, and if you cook them on low all day, they're so tender.

BTW, my grandpa was also known to cook a pig in the pit (in the ground) at our reunions. It was just cool at the time (and it still is), but now I realize how much work he put into preparing meals for our families at our reunions and get togethers. Thanks, grandpa for the delicious meals, the wonderful memories, and the timeless recipes!
Thank so much for stopping by! I hope you found a little something worth your time.
