We have always loved country style ribs cooked in the crock pot with tangy barbecue sauce. Using this recipe I made my own barbecue sauce instead of using some from a bottle. It turned out great! The apple cider vinegar gave it just the right amount of tang.You may be tempted to skip browning the ribs first and just put them straight into the crock pot, especially if you are throwing this together before work in the morning, but don’t do it! Browning the ribs before you put them in the crock pot ensures that the sauce won’t be runny and greasy. Trust me, I made a boston butt that didn’t make it on here to share with you guys because I skipped the browning step and the barbecue sauce turned out nasty. Taking a few minutes to brown the meat first is so worth it!
Follow the recipe and this turns out so good! Enjoy!
