This recipe has become a family favorite and something you could make tomorrow, in the slow cooker for #SundaySupper.
Slow Cooker Country Ribs
1 package Country Style Ribs
Salt & Pepper
2 Tablespoons cooking oil
1 Cup chicken broth
• 2/3 cup light brown sugar
• 1 teaspoon Hungarian paprika
• 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
• 1 tablespoon white vinegar
• 1/2 teaspoon dried ground thyme
• 2/3 cup ketchup
• 1 tablespoon yellow mustard
• 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
• ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper
Put all ingredients into a pot, stirring together over medium heat. Cook to simmer and then take off the burner to cool.
Salt and pepper ribs to taste and brown in skillet with cooking oil.
When browned, pour chicken stock in slow cooker and place ribs on top.
Pour barbecue sauce over ribs making sure all sides are coated.
Turn slow cooker to high and cook for 4 hours.
Turn slow cooker to low and cook an additional 2-4 hours, until falling apart.
Remove from cooker to plate and cover with foil for about 20 minutes.
I served with fresh rolls and mashed potatoes pouring a little sauce over the potatoes as well.
As you can tell, this barbecue sauce is not thick or heavy and is even less thick because of the chicken stock. I don’t really like store-bought sauces because they are too sweet for me. This one is not. It is light and does not cover the taste of the ribs.
***if you don’t have a slow cooker, place in a 9×13 Pyrex dish, cover with foil and cook for 3 hours in a 300 degree oven, removing foil for last 30 minutes***

Ribs are a country favourite at my place – yours look better than the ones in restaurants 😀

Thanks! That’s what my husband said – and he is the pickiest eater on earth!
You are so sweet to me CCU – I’ve honestly never heard that said to me before! 🙂
These really do sound yummy! I am saving this one to try.
Thanks! They really are – I made some rolls out of Pillsbury french loaf pop-up dough the next night and we had sandwiches with the leftovers. Very versatile.

These look SO good. I’ll bring you cookies if you bring me ribs?
Sounds like a great plan!
Yum yum lady! When I am busy, my slow cooker is heaven! Linky party? Guess I have to read the next post:]]]] yay!
Don’t you just love a slow cooker? I know you are busy but it should be test week so not as many classes. Son got his review for the Bar books delivered by UPS Friday. Very Heavy!! Guess you got yours too! Take care and do well on your last tests!
I love the country style ribs…so meaty and delicious.
Thank Karen! I have always loved them too!
I am pinning this bbq sauce recipe!
Kelli, it does look nice and saucy. Cheers
These are great… make them all the time. I don’t know if I have an over ambitious slow cooker or what, but I only cook mine for an hour and a half on high and then another hour and a half on low. They come out perfect, but burnt if I cook for 2 hours at each temperature like the recipe says.
I’ve gotta try these. I, also, don’t like heavy, sweet sauce. Bet this would work great on chicken too.
