Ingredients:

Serves 6.

  • 2 1/2 to 3 lb. country style pork ribs, boneless
  • 1 tbsp. oil
  • 1 large onion, quartered & sliced 1/4- to 1/2-inch thick
  • .
  • Sauce:
  • 1/3 cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup tomato ketchup
  • 1 tbsp. prepared mustard (I used spicy brown)
  • 3 tbsp. brown sugar
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • Dash black pepper
  • 2 tbsp. apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon celery seed (I substituted a dash of celery salt)

Preparation:

Trim excess fat from ribs. In a large skillet, brown ribs in oil; transfer to the slow cooker. Place onion slices over the pork ribs.
Combine all remaining ingredients; pour over ribs and onions. Cover and cook on low for 8 to 10 hours.

Notes:

  • I started the ribs on the grill to give them some smoky flavor, but the gas tank ran out by the time I put the meat on. I left it on for a half-hour anyway, and the residual heat probably helped, but I ended up browning them on the stove-top after all.
  • Joe really liked this BBQ sauce — but you could certainly substitute a cup or two of any sauce for a very different flavor.
