Slow Cooker Country Style Ribs

This is another simple recipe   that is kid-friendly and husband-friendly as well!
A new grocery store recently opened near our house and had these ribs on sale for $0.99 a pound, can't beat that price! 

I went on a search to find the best slow cooker ribs I could find and came across this recipe.  Looked simple enough.  I have made ribs before in the slow cooker that just fell off the bone in the crock-pot, I didn't really want that. I was looking for something that held the meat together even after cooking all day.  I must say that this recipe did a pretty good job!

Country-Style Crock Pot Ribs Recipe

 I had to make a few substitutions because I was missing a few ingredients.
This is what I came up with...


4lb pork country style ribs
1/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
1 tbsp paprika
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp garlic powder with parsley flakes
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp black pepper
1tsp thyme, crushed
1 cup barbecue sauce

Mix up all the dry ingredients and rub on the ribs.

Spray the Crock-Pot with non-stick cooking very generous, you don't want these to stick!

This is our favorite slow cooker for cooking recipes like crockpot mac and cheese and hidden veggie crock pot marinara, which are both recipes that kids love and are quick and easy in the slow cooker...bonus for busy moms!

These slow cooker country style ribs are soft and delicious, perfect to throw in the crock pot in the morning.

Stack the ribs vertically, cover and cook on low for 6-8 hrs.
Uncover, and pour your favorite sauce all over the ribs...there will be juices on the bottom of the slow cooker, its' ok if the barbecue sauce gets mixed in. Cover again and cook on high for about 30 min.
