many cooks turn to montreal steak spice as a rub for steaks… this time around, i thought this seasoning staple would make for a fantastic culinary experiment with slowcooked pork ribs… hello!

montreal steak spice is a blend of pepper, salt, coriander, dill, mustard seeds, dehydrated garlic and onions, red pepper flakes, rosemary, thyme, paprika and caraway seeds. check out the fantastic specks of colour it adds to the food prep. beauty.

slowcook the ribs:
add the following ingredients into a medium slowcooker and stir to combine well.
simmer on high heat in the slowcooker for approx 5-5.5 hours.

– 1.5 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
– drizzle of honey
– dash of sea salt
– 1 rack of meaty pork ribs (split into 2-3 portions)
– sprinkle 2 tsp montreal steak spice (divided) over pork ribs
– add 1/2 cup sparkling water (instead of soda)
– add 2/3 water (divided)
– drizzle of honey

note: recommend not leaving the slowcooker unattended. you will need to stir ingredients occasionally and lift the slowcooker lid slightly to release steam occasionally during the slowcooking process, so it’s best to stay nearby. be sure to follow the safety instructional manual that came with your particular model of slowcooker.
