Two Recipes in One ~ Enjoy!

2 sides pork spareribs (about 6 pounds), separated
1 (28-ounce) can chunky tomato sauce
1/3 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
1 tablespoon chili powder
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Place the spareribs in the bottom of a slow cooker. In a medium bowl, whisk together the remaining ingredients. Reserve 6 tablespoons for BBQ Pizza.
Pour the mixture over the spareribs. Cover and cook on LOW for 6 to 8 hours or on HIGH for 3 to 4 hours.

Reserve 1/2 of the ribs and pull the meat from the bones for the BBQ Pizza recipe.

1 store bought pizza crust
6 tablespoons BBQ sauce
1 cup cooked BBQ pork, diced or shredded
1/2 cup frozen corn, defrosted
2 tablespoons pickled jalapeno rings
1 1/2 cups shredded Monterey jack cheese
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro leaves
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Roll out the pizza dough and place on a pizza pan or large baking sheet. Spread the BBQ sauce all over crust. Top with the pork, corn, jalapenos and cheese.

Bake 8 to 10 minutes, or until the cheese melts and the crust is golden. Top with fresh cilantro.

Serve with a simple green salad.
