  • 3 carrots, diced

  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • ~9 black peppercorns
  • 2 c. water or chicken broth
  • 4 lbs. country style pork ribs
  • 2 Tbs. cornstarch
  • 1/4 c. water

Mix together the bouillon, garlic, carrots, celery, onion, peppercorns, and water/broth in the crockpot. Add the pork and cook on low for ~6 to 8hrs (until pork is cooked). Remove the pork, use an immersion blender to puree the veggies and broth. In a separate bowl, mix together the cornstarch and 1/4 c. water. Add this slurry to the veggies and broth. Put the pork back into the crockpot and continue cooking on low for another 30 min.
