I honestly never thought to take a picture of this, but since everything slathered in BBQ sauce pretty much looks alike, I’m sure you can use your imagination. I was at Woodman’s the other day and saw Country Style Ribs in their “reduced” section for 50% off and took them home to stick in the freezer for a day like today. I let them thaw overnight in the fridge, and when I got home, I proceeded to make what turned out to be the best meat I’ve ever made (and I don’t even like meat very much). So here you go, give it a shot.
Slow Cooker Country Style BBQ Pork Ribs
3 lb country style pork ribs, thawed
1/4 c. green onion
1 Tbsp garlic (dried or minced, whatever you prefer)
4 Tbsp “Best Odds” Rib Rub (I will include the recipe on the bottom- it’s amazing)
1 16-18 oz bottle of BBQ sauce (I used Target brand “sweet-spicy”) for later
Throw chopped green onions in the bottom of your crock pot, put ribs on top, sprinkle garlic over, then make sure all sides of the ribs get a sprinkling (a good one!) of the rib rub. Cover and turn on Low for 7 hours or High for 3 (just until the pork is about 160 degrees F). Then drain the juices and add the full bottle of BBQ sauce, stirring the ribs around so they all get covered, then put the lid back on and turn it to low for another hour.
Simple. I like simple. I’m sure you do too.
The recipe below was given to me by a dear friend who wasn’t a fan of it and found someone who was…ME!
