"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali
2-2 ½ lbs. boneless ribs (I like to use the extra lean ribs.) garlic salt ½ c. vinegar 1 ½ tbsp. chili powder 1 c. catsup ¼ c. sugar 1 tbsp. paprika ½ tbsp. pepper
Sprinkle ribs with garlic salt. Place them in the crock pot. Combine all remaining ingredients and pour over ribs. Set on low for 6-8 hours. They are so tender you can break them apart with a fork. I serve the ribs over rice.
Or you can bake in 325 oven for 2 ½ hours. Spoon sauce over ribs every half hour.
