Easy Slow Cooker Barbecue Country-Style Ribs

  • 4 to 6 pounds bone-in country style ribs
  • 18 ounce bottle of your favorite barbecue sauce (or use homemade)
  • medium onion, chopped
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • extra bottle of sauce for basting and dipping (or use homemade)


Spray slow cooker with non-stick cooking spray. Place ribs in cooker, salt and pepper to taste. Cover with onions and barbecue sauce. If needed due to amount of ribs, you can layer them, adding the ribs, onion and barbecue sauce in two layers. 

Cook on low for *6 to 8 hours, until pork is tender. When ready, remove from cooker and place on baking sheet or roasting pan. Baste ribs with fresh barbecue sauce and place under broiler for a few minutes, until the barbecue sauce starts to bubble and caramelize. Serve with your favorite sides. Enjoy!

*Cooking times may vary, adjust cooking time according to your slow cooker.


For easy clean-up, line your baking sheet/pan with foil before placing ribs under the broiler.
