“Blackberries were on sale and so after looking at a lot of BBQ recipes, I put together this recipe! I threw in a pack of blackberries - not sure if it was six or eight ounces, but it was somewhere in there :) Also, I use organic, low salt and low sugar ketchup... you might want to lower the soy sauce if you ketchup is salty.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut the ribs into individual ribs.
  2. Melt the butter in the olive oil, in a frying pan, over medium high. Once the oil is hot, add the pork ribs and sear. You don't want them cooked, but you want the sides brown to hold in the juices and give texture to the meat. You will probably need to do this in batches, so add the butter and oil a bit at a time until all the ribs are cooked.
  3. Mix all the other ingredients in the blender and puree until smooth.
  4. Place ribs into crock pot as they sear. Pour sauce over ribs.
  5. Cook on high for five hours, turn to low and cook another 3-4 hours.
  6. Enjoy! This is really nice with steamed veggies, with a touch of lemon juice.
