Key West Ribs

I found this recipe a few years ago. We've updated it and made it our own. These ribs are so moist and delicious. It's a great meal when you've got the winter blahs, the citrus is so refreshing!

2 1/2 lb. country-style pork spareribs (either bone-in or boneless will work)
1/4 cup onion, chopped fine
1/4 cup barbecue sauce (a thick flavorful sauce is great in here)
1 tsp grated orange peel (I use the zest from one orange)
1 tsp grated lime peel (I use the zest from one lime)
2 cloves of minced garlic
1/2 tsp salt
juice from the zested orange
juice from the zested lime

Place ribs in the crockpot. Combine the remaining ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Pour over the ribs.
Cover; cook on low for 7-9 hours. Remove ribs from crockpot, cover with foil, set aside. 
Pour sauce in a sauce pan and over med/high heat, reduce the sauce by 1/3.  Spoon sauce over ribs when serving.
We love this with some rice and a side of black beans; serve these with the sauce too.
