I thought this was a great dish, but I do believe the recipe needs to be altered. Two tablespoons of liquid did not seem nearly enough to cook something in the crockpot. I used 1/3 cup of both syrup (I also had the lite kind) and soy sauce I added a big squirt of honey and a few shakes of worcestershire sauce as well. I used 1 teaspoon of each of the spices, used onion powder and fresh garlic as that is what I had on hand. I was late starting this (about 1 pm) so I turned the crockpot on high. It's a good thing I was home because it only took about 3 1/2 hours to cook. I think 9 hours (even on low) would have been way too long, but I did use boneless country style ribs. Overall a delicious recipe and I will make it again!

To those of you who find the sauce to thin, I have a tip for you when using your slow cookers! Place a 2 or 3 layers of paper towels over your slow cooker, then put the lid on. The paper towels will capture the moisture. I use this trick every time I make something that I don't want the sauce to get thin. Hope this helps! Many blessings to all!


I love this recipe. I have made it 4 to 5 times now, and have finally gotten it to the point where I think it is absolutely perfect. I use boneless ribs, which make less liquid in the slow cooker. I also double the maple syrup, since I use the sugar free type. I find that if I do it this way, when the time is up, I can pull the lid off of the slow cooker and the meat pulls apart beautifully. Also, if I want to switch it up a bit, adding a bottle of my favorite barbecue suace tastes great too. My fiancee loves this recipe and requests it often.
