We are huge fans of the slow cooker in our house. It’s easy to use, makes delicious meals, and makes our house smell amazing. Take these Slow Cooker Barbecue Ribs. There’s a lot of meat on these country style ribs, and cooking them in the makes them so tender that they literally fall off the bone.

There are a few different methods of cooking ribs in the slow cooker. Sometimes I’ll just throw them in and let them simmer in their own juices, and sometimes I’ll prop them up on some foil. The latter method is the one I used for these Country Style Ribs. It helps to keep the meat from falling apart too much, make it a little easier to remove from the slow cooker in tact. It also let the fat drip off while still keeping the meat super flavorful.

You also have the option of cooking the ribs with BBQ sauce or slathering them after they’re finished cooking. Waiting until the end to add the sauce helps the flavor of the meat itself really come shine, rather than the sauce.
