BBQ Country Style Ribs

BBQ Country Style Ribs

I will post the traditional, slow version, and the crockpot version in this same post.
This is probably my favorite comfort meal.

You will need:

4 pounds Country Style Ribs
1 onion, quartered
2 t. salt
1/4 t. pepper

Cover Ribs with water in large dutch oven. Boil until tender. Drain off liquid.

Barbecue Sauce:
3/4 c cider vinegar or plain white vinegar. Whatever you have in the house
1/2 t. dry mustard
2 T. finely chopped onion
1 T. brown sugar
1/4 c. Worcestershire sauce
3/4 c. catchup
1 T. lemon juice
1 clove garlic

Place ribs in pan, cover with sauce at 325 degrees for 25-30 minutes, cover ribs with sauce several times while baking.
Sauce may be thickened with corn starch or you may reduce sauce in saucepan. I prefer to thicken with corn starch, faster. lol

Crockpot BBQ Country Style Ribs
Season the ribs with salt, pepper and garlic, and onion, or Seasoned salt for the lazy people in us.
Place in the bottom of a greased crockpot.
Mix together the sauce as directed above and pour on top of ribs.
Cook on low for 8-10 hours, until the meat is tender and the bones fall away from the meat.
Remove ribs from crock and let them rest under a tin foil tent for about 10 minutes.
While the meat is resting, pour the sauce and juices from the crock into a medium sauce pan and place over medium high heat.
Bring to a boil.
In a container with a tight fitting lid, place some of the sauce in it along with 2 Tbsp. Starch. Shake to mix.
Add to the boiling mixture and mix with a whisk.
Pour some of the sauce onto the ribs, and reserve some sauce to pass around the table.

*Note: I often double the sauce recipe so there is plenty to add to dipping bowls.
This sauce can be used on chicken as well.

I often serve this with mashed tatters and green beans.
