|Yummy beef ribs with a hint of maple|
I found this Taste of Inspirations rub in my local Hannaford supermarket. Since I had a grand-opening coupon for $2 off any Hannaford-branded product, and Taste of Inspirations is one of their brands, I figured I’d give this a try because the flavors sounded interesting.
Bottle recommended it for pork…and it’s great on that but I’ve used it for chicken and now this beef. Excellent flavor. I liked it so much I sent a bottle down to Sylvia. She used it on fish and said it tasted absolutely delicious!
I’ve been wanting to use my crock pot more so I wanted to try doing something with this rub and a maple-y glaze. This is a recipe I adapted from a very similar crock pot beef rib one I’d been using for years. That recipe uses a rub, but more of a Creole spiced one, and you roast them same way as this, only you remove the ribs after they’re done, drain the slow cooker of any grease and wipe it dry. Then you place the ribs back in, add a cup of your favorite BBQ sauce, set to HI and cook for another 30 minutes. Try that one too!
We also have a little fun giveaway for a bottle of this rub. Enter in the Rafflecopter application at the bottom of the post.
