How do you make country style ribs crock pot with no bbq sauce? 

This recipe is simple to make!  You put the country style pork ribs in your favorite crock pot.  Then you combine all the other ingredients together and pour over the top.  This sauce is so good that you will not miss the barbecue sauce in this recipe!

Then cover and cook the ribs in the slow cooker for 8-10 hours.  Once they have been slow cooked, I broil the ribs on a baking sheet for approximately 5-10 minutes to caramelize the sauce.  This process bring out the best flavors in this recipe.  You may also put them on the grill for 5-10 minutes instead of using the broiler if you prefer.

This sauce is so good that you will not miss the barbecue sauce in this recipe!

How are country style pork ribs different than spare ribs?

Country style pork ribs are cut from the shoulder of the hog and the very end of the pork loin.  These ribs are similar to pork chops in flavor.

Spare ribs come from the rib section of the hog and have a slightly different flavor.  Either type would taste great in this recipe, so you may substitute with spare ribs in you prefer them over country style ribs.

The sauce in this recipe would go great with other cuts of pork as well.  I usually buy what’s on sale.  Pork chops or a pork roast would work in this slow cooker recipe to make amazing pulled pork for your friends and family.

How long do you cook country style ribs in a crock pot?

This best slow cooker country style ribs recipe cooks in the crock pot on low for 8-10 hours.  You can also cook country style ribs slow cooker on high for approximately 6-8 hours.  I prefer to cook these on low as I think they are more tender, but you can cook them on high to shorten the cooking time if you need to.

You can also cook frozen country style ribs in crock pot.  I would extend the cook time by 2 hours if they are put into the crock pot frozen.  I love freezer cooking as it saves me a lot of time in getting dinner ready for my family.

To prepare this recipe as a freezer meal, I would make the sauce ahead of time and pour this sauce over the ribs in a freezer bag.  You can freeze these items together and then put the freezer bag contents in your crock pot the morning that you plan on serving this amazing recipe.

Can you use boneless ribs instead?

Yes you can! I would follow the same instructions and keep the cooking time the same.

I love serving these country style ribs in crock pot with quick and easy baked beans.  This combination tastes great and pares well together.

You can also serve these ribs with an easy macaroni pasta salad recipe or a classic Italian pasta salad.  I like that I can make a pasta salad ahead of time, so there is not much work that needs to be done to get dinner on the table once the crock pot has cooked the ribs perfectly.

Also, you can make a one pot meal of slow cooker country style ribs and potatoes by placing your favorite type of potatoes under the ribs prior to cooking.  This will create great slow cooked potatoes that you can easily serve with this crock pot country style pork ribs recipe.

    What a great way to cook country style ribs in the hot summer months. I think I will just buy BBQ sauce instead of making this sauce.

  2. These look heavenly! If my husband wasn’t on a low carb, low fat sodium diet, I would make these. He JUST received a kidney transplant on March 31st and is very restricted. Thank you for posting such wonderful recipes. I love to cook and hope to delve in to the ones I can’t quite cook now!

  3. I only have an Instant Pot so can I get the directions for cooking it in that?? The recipe looks AMAZING and I must try it soon! ?

  4. Tara – I haven’t tried these in the Instant Pot yet but I would cook them on high pressure for 45-50 minutes with a full natural release. Make sure to add 1-1 1/2 cup of liquid so it’ll come to pressure. Let us know how they turn out!

  5. 5 stars
    These were amazing, the flavor the ease of making. We do not cook outside much as it is way to hot in the afternoon sun and I missed having ribs. Thank you thank you for the suggestion of cooking ribs in the crock pot. This is a MUST try recipe people.
