Easy Slow-Cooker Country-Style Ribs

These big, meaty ribs are bursting with flavor straight from the slow cooker ... including a hint of smokiness. Delish!

Ingredients

1
tbsp each kosher salt, sweet Hungarian paprika and garlic powder
1/2
tbsp each ground black pepper and dry ground mustard (found in the spice aisle)
4
lbs country-style ribs (bone-in), seperated
1
sweet onion, halved and sliced thinly

Sauce

1
(12-oz) bottle chili sauce (found near the ketchup)
1
tbsp liquid smoke
1
tbsp light brown sugar
1
tbsp cornstarch

Directions

  • 1 In a small bowl, stir together the salt, paprika, garlic powder, pepper and ground mustard. Rub all over the country-style ribs, dividing equally among them.
  • 2 Arrange the onions in the bottom of the slow cooker. Top with the ribs.
  • 3 In a medium bowl, whisk together the chili sauce, liquid smoke, cornstarch and brown sugar. Pour over the ribs, spreading gently to cover them.

Slow Cooker Game Day Ribs

As prepared by S Caron,

So, when the game is on, what will you be eating? If you have 10 minutes on Sunday morning, you could be eating these big, meaty Easy Slow Cooker Country-Style Ribs.

Making these is a breeze. Stir together a super easy rub and massage it into all the ribsso the ribs have a deep flavor.

Then layer thinly sliced onions in the bottom of the slow cooker. This is more about the flavor they impart when the ribs are cooking. Include them, even if you don’t want to eat them.

Whisk up the sauce. This is where the smokiness comes in. Liquid smoke, when used properly, is an amazing ingredient that adds smoker flavor … without the smoker. Pour that into the slow cooker.

Then cook. These babies take 3-4 hours on high, which is perfect for eating on game day. Just toss them in around breakfast time, and they will be ready for the early afternoon game.
