Barbecue Ribs ~ slow cooked

the stuff you need to make it:
4 pounds pork country style ribs
salt and pepper to taste
1 cup of ketchup
2 cups of BBQ sauce (we prefer Stubbs)
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
4 tablespoons red wine vinegar
2 teaspoons dried oregano (italian seasoning works if you don't have oregano)
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1 dash of hot sauce

how to make it:
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
2. Season ribs with salt and pepper. Place in a shallow baking pan. Brown in oven 15 minutes. Turn over, and brown another 15 minutes; drain fat.
3. In a medium bowl, mix together the ketchup, brown sugar, vinegar, oregano, Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce, and salt and pepper. Place ribs in slow cooker. Pour sauce over ribs, and turn to coat.
4. Cover, and cook on Low for 6-8 hours or until ribs are tender.

*option: after cooking in slow cooker i remove the ribs and place back into a shallow baking pan and place under the broiler on low for a few minutes to carmelize them before serving.

These ribs are delicious and a regular
Sunday dinner in our house.
Hope your family loves them as much as mine does!

  1. No doubt. That's why I pay attention to nutritional values. Ribs and steaks, etc., are full of sodium and cholesterol. But oh, they are so, so, yummy!
