Tender pork ribs, cooked slowly in a light curry sauce.
You know those dishes that literally take 5 minutes to throw together, and then the crock pot does all the work? THIS is one of those dishes. You can easily throw this together before you run out the door for work. You’ll come home to an amazing smelling house, and dinner will be practically already ready.
When I cook meat dishes I usually estimate 4-6 oz of meat per person. 4 for kids and women, and 6 for men. I also take into consideration how many servings I want to have for left over lunches or dinners and add that to my total. This recipe is really flexible, you can easily add more meat. You’ll also notice the meat isn’t sitting in the marinade, and that’s how it will get tender. When meat is cooked in too much liquid it boils and isn’t very tender. So, yes the onions are important to get the meat mostly out of the liquid, even if you don’t end up eating the onions still use them.
This dish is so easy and simple to make, it’s perfect for those busy nights where you don’t want to spend hours in the kitchen.
