Set It and Forget It Slow Cooked Foil Wrapped Ribs

This is too easy, you might forget it's cooking until you get the fragrance of the spices and sauce drifting your way from the kitchen.  A few ingredients, a few hours, and then it's ready to eat.  An easy cleanup too, because of the foil.

After slow cooking this in the oven and considering cooking it in the slow cooker, I thought why not cook it slowly on the stovetop?  If it doesn't cook just right, I'd finish cooking it in the oven.  Didn't have to.

For this version I used horseradish, brown sugar, ketchup and a few spices.  I forgot to add the onions, but there was plenty of flavor without them.  Double, even triple wrap if you need to seal the meat in its sauce.  I used boneless thick ribs this time, and I've also used other cuts of pork and beef before.

My stove is electric and goes from Low, 1, 2, etc. 9, then High.  I set the pan on 2.  After about an hour I heard the sizzling  and turned it down to Low. Altogether this size parcel, about 2 lbs of ribs took just about 2 hours 45 minutes to cook all the way through, no rareness.  A little less time  cooking depending on your stove.

The juices settled to the bottom of the bowl; give a stir or better to put the meat in a smaller container than I did.  This makes a great sandwich with melted provolone cheese.  Shredded meat goes well with rice; mixed with shredded potatoes and fried together;   with noodles, or what have you.

Sometimes I don't mind stirring and watching, and sometimes I do.  Do you have a go-to easy set it and forget it meal?

This look really good! I actually came upon some similar recipes for baby back ribs but didn't try them yet. To clarify..since I have a gas stove, would I put the packet in something like a dutch oven with a lid?

Laurie, how did you like it?

Evelyn, you probably won't see this, but thank you for visiting and sharing. I can't leave a comment on your blog with the embedded form and your email is nowhere to be found-
Your post about your mom is precious and I wanted to send you my good wishes.

ArtSings1946, oh 80's calls for a cool kitchen- slow cooker all the way for you. Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Katie, thanks for visiting and happy to blog hop on Thursdays.

Hey Stacy! Busy, busy and that's a very good thing. I put horseradish on roast beef and corned beef, too. I don't know where that came from, no one I know does that. Yes, the LF requires more than gfc or bloglovin', maybe we all jumped in too fast. Here's a napkin :)

Hi Debbie, I emailed you, but to answer for anyone else, I think a low flame on gas in a dutch oven w/lid would work well, too. The dutch oven is heavier than my saute pan, so it might take a bit longer to cook. Hope you enjoy them!

This is such a fabulous idea!I need to try this and it sounds super yummy!I LOVE shredded pork especially when it is seasoned well!

Hi Cassidy, I thought you might like this- pork is low in fat. If it's not quite moist, a little sauce would be just the right thing. Hope you like it!
