    recipe on the blog. this is a family favorite that my mom makes, but I modified it to cook in the slow cooker so it's even easier.

      OMG, this looks so good. I have to make this! Do you think I could make it in a regular pot? I don't have a slow cooker...

      yep, regular pot would be fine! You might need a touch more liquid. Just simmer it for about 3 hours? Or until tender.

      ohhhh. this looks so lovely.

      how big is your slow cooker? i'm trying to decide what to get.

      pretty positive I got the 6-quart. 6.5 quart? Oval. Crock Pot brand. It's pretty large; I like it for making big things, and they can sit in nearly a single layer (not exactly). It actually came with a small "dip" crock pot too (which I've yet to use).

      These look great! Do the ribs need to be submerged in liquid when they're cooking in the slow cooker?

      thanks. then maybe i'll go for the big one. i assume it's okay to cook smaller amounts in the bigger pot.

      you want the cooker to be at least 1/2 to 3/4 full. i have a 6 qt but ended up getting a 3qt as well because a lot of the things i make just don't fill the 6qt.

      ok. that makes sense. i'll start with a 3qt then and see if a big one is necessary. thanks!

      yeah It's not actually ok to cook smaller amounts in a bigger pot--you'd have issues with timing/burning if so.
