Beer Braised Pork Ribs

In a crockpot, this recipe takes only 10-15 minutes to assemble, and at the end of a long day, you've got amazingly tender ribs great for tortas, tacos, sammies, BBQ sauce and so much more!! The best part - it takes all of 8 ingredients to prepare this yummy treat.

4 lb. pork ribs ($3.95)
2 tsp. Mexican oregano ($.05)
1 bottle beer, any brand ($1.00)
2 cloves garlic, minced ($.10)
1/2 medium red or white onion, minced ($.10)
1 1/2 tsp. chili powder ($.05)
1/2 C. Mexican Chile and Lime marinade (free after coupons)
salt and pepper, to taste ($.05)

Combine all ingredients except pork in crockpot, mixing well. Add pork, toss in the sauce to coat well.

Cook over high for 2-3 hours, reduce heat to low and cook an additional 2-4 hours, checking after 2 hours to see if meat has reached desired doneness.

Yields = 16 to 18 servings

Cost: $5.30
Cost per serving: $.33

Serving ideas:
1. Serve with tortillas, minced onion and cilantro for a simple taco
2. Serve in a hollowed out hard sub roll topped with cheese and your favorite salsa for a tasty torta
3. Top with a simple BBQ sauce and eat in a bun
4. Toss with precooked, cubed potatoes, and your favorite veggies for a hearty hash
5. Serve on whole wheat toast with mayo, shredded cheddar, and tomato for a refreshing summer sandwich

This freezes very well, if sealed properly, it can last 3-6 months in freezer.
