Holy crap, spare ribs are gooooood! I mean, why wouldn’t they be, really? They are glistened with fat and literally fall of the bone when you cook them, damn. If you anti-fatty meat, get over it and splurge for a meal. Animal fat is wicked good!

Anyways, a couple weeks ago, spare ribs were on sale at Whole Foods!! I was on those things like white on rice. Bad joke, but you get my flow. I had never cooked spare ribs before or knew what to cook them in so I went on a whim, and it worked! This recipe has very few ingredients and barely any work on your part, so get to it. And if you still don’t have a crockpot, you must feel naked and I feel bad for you. Not really though. Invest in one, totally worth it!

  • 7 oz. can of tomato paste
  • 4 oz. can of diced green chiles
  • 2/3 cups tomato sauce
  • 1-2 bundles of broccolini
  • 2-3 teaspoon avocado oil (or olive oil works too!)

  • 3 tablespoons onion powder--1 tbsp for broccolini, and the rest for the ribs
  • hint of paprika
  • salt and pepper to taste

DIRECTIONS :

  1. Handy dandy crockpot time!!! That means get it out.
  2. Pour in your broth or water and spices (garlic powder, onion powder, and paprika) and mix together.
  3. Add in your spare ribs to the crockpot.
  4. Pour tomato sauce over ribs then top them off with tomato paste and green chiles. Add a bit of salt and pepper on top.
  5. Cover and let cook on low for 6-8 hours. They will be ready when they are falling off the bone!
  6. Once your spare ribs are ready to go, pull out a large skillet, heat avocado oil over medium heat and add your broccolini to cook up. Once you've mixed them around a bit in the avocado oil, add in your extra garlic and onion powder and saute those little critters up.
  7. Serve broccolini along side your beef spare ribs. BOMB.

Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

I’m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don’t know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my ever-changing life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated.

  1. YUM. this was delicious and so yummy-fatty. what did you do with all the leftover stock/fat juices in the bottom of the crockpot? there was a lot!

      1. i made some chili last night and used it as my broth and liquid component, mostly because i was too lazy to empty out that leftover stuff and clean the crock pot. FANTASTIC. maybe it was just my chili skills that were fantastic, but i doubt it.

  2. There are onions in the photo. I like onions. Ribs like onions too. Could the go in at the beginning, with the ribs? Brown first, or lazy way?

  3. Juli, these were the BOMB!! I used boneless ribs, OMG!! The flavor was amazing!! THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!

  4. I’m making this recipe right now 🙂 Quick question…..is it really 14oz of green chills? I couldnt even find a can that size so I bought a few of the 4oz cans. After I put 2 of them in, it seemed like TONS of green chilis, so I stopped there. Not sure if the 14 oz was a misprint and you meant 4 oz can. Either way….it seems great so far 🙂

  5. I know this is super late when it comes to comments, but I don’t care. This recipe is STUPID good! Go make it! Make it now!!!!

  6. These were really tasty. So versatile! Had it in a Hispanic bowl today with lettuce, cauli rice, avocado, cilantro, plaintain chips, and a little sriracha mayo!! Thinking about making it Asian tomorrow!
