Barbecue Country Ribs


  • 4 pounds boneless country-style pork ribs
  • 1 bottle (12 ounces) chili sauce
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • ½ cup packed brown sugar (we used light brown sugar)
  • 1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt (we used table salt)
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder (accidentally used 2 tsp.)
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon pepper (we used freshly ground black pepper)
  • ½ teaspoon hot pepper sauce, optional (we used Frank’s RedHot Original)
  • ¼ teaspoon liquid smoke, optional (we used hickory)


  1. Take a 5-qt. slow cooker out and place the ribs in it first. Take a large mixing bowl out and combine remaining ingredients together in it, pouring the sauce mixture over the ribs afterwards.
  2. Put the lid on the slow cooker and let it cook on LOW for 5 to 6 hours or until the meat is tender (we checked on the ribs after 5 ½ hours and ours were tender by that point).

This was such an easy recipe to make ! The meat was practically falling apart, it was tender. We weren’t sure if accidentally adding more garlic powder than the recipe recommended would mess up the flavor but the sauce tasted good to us so it was a happy accident !

This recipe came from Taste of Home.

We weren’t paid in any form to promote Frank’s RedHot or Taste of Home.

Take care everybody !
