Slow Cooker Country Style Ribs


For the Ribs:

3 lbs country style pork ribs

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1 teaspoon onion powder

1 teaspoon smoked paprika

Salt and pepper to taste

1 cup barbecue sauce

1/2 cup apple cider vinegar

1/2 cup chicken broth

2 tablespoons brown sugar

2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce


Season the ribs:

In a large bowl, mix garlic powder, onion powder, smoked paprika, salt, and pepper. Rub this seasoning mix all over the ribs.

Prepare the slow cooker:

In the base of the slow cooker, whisk together barbecue sauce, apple cider vinegar, chicken broth, brown sugar, and Worcestershire sauce.

Cook the ribs:

Place the seasoned ribs in the slow cooker. Turn to coat with the sauce.

Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours or on high for 3-4 hours, until the ribs are tender and cooked through.


Serve the ribs hot, smothered in the remaining sauce from the slow cooker. Perfect with sides like coleslaw, cornbread, or mashed potatoes.
