These were country style bone-in ribs that were already cut apart. I rubbed on some dry rub.
Then I layered them in the cooker (lined with a slow cooker liner).
I cooked on high for an hour to heat up. Then turned down to low and cooked the rest of the day. About an hour before eating, I made the barbecue sauce.
This is the Neely's Sauce from The Food Network.
- 2 cups ketchup
- 1 cup water
- 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
- 5 tablespoons light brown sugar
- 5 tablespoons sugar
- 1/2 tablespoon fresh ground black pepper
- 1/2 tablespoon onion powder
- 1/2 tablespoon ground mustard
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
It called for simmering for over an hour. But I didn't see that until it was time to use it! So I simmered for about 15 minutes and then poured over my ribs. My sauce got to simmer along with the ribs. :)
They turned out good! I do have to complain just a little. For some reason, ribs tend to turn out dry in the slow cooker. Even drowned in juices and sauce. I think I need to rotate them more often so none stay out of the liquid for long.
