Cooking for a crowd: maple ribs, chicken...whatever!
Be sure to enter my giveaway!
I've been making this dinner quite a bit this past year. It is simple and goes over well with the whole family. It is also very flexible. The recipe was originally for country style ribs but I recently made with chicken thighs. I'm guessing it would work with beef too.
Maple ribs, chicken...whatever!
Several pounds of whatever meat you want to use
1-2 cups maple syrup
2 Tbsp. soy sauce
1 chopped onion
2 tsp cinnamon (I never measure though)
1 tsp all spice (ditto)
1 tsp ginger (ditto again)
Put all of the meat in the crock pot. Mix all of the other ingredients together and pour over the meat. Cook on low for about 8 hours. Remove the juices from the crock pot and make a gravy out of it. See, isn't that easy?
I serve this with mashed sweet potatoes (coconut milk is great mixed in with these) and a salad. So simple, making mom happy. Dad loves the meat. The kids love how sweet the maple syrup makes this meal!
