Now that I am back to my day job, a high school counselor, easy meals are back on the calendar. Just like any busy working person, sometimes a hearty, homemade dinner just seems overwhelming after a long day on the job. However, this meal is quick, no-fuss, and delicious but tastes like it has been slow cooking for hours, because it has!
Barbecue and ribs are a Southern staple. There are several recipes on this very site for various flavors and cooking methods. This recipe is a simple, "leave it and forget it" slow cooker recipe that utilizes the less expensive Southern Style Ribs, a meatier version of the popular pork rib.
With this recipe, you may use your favorite barbecue sauce. I used a "Thick and Spicy" version of a national brand. Just be warned, I would consider doubling the recipe for your family. Yes. They are that good!
3 Pounds Southern Style Pork Ribs
1/4 teaspoon Black Pepper
1/4 teaspoon Salt
1/4 teaspoon Garlic Powder
1/4 teaspoon Onion Powder
1/2 teaspoon Red Pepper Flakes
1/2 Cup Barbecue Sauce
1/2 Cup Water
1. Place the ribs in the bottom of the slow cooker.
2. Sprinkle the dry seasonings over the ribs. Top with barbecue sauce. Carefully pour the water into the bottom of the slow cooker, making sure not to pour over the ribs.
3. Place the lid on the slow cooker. Cook on LOW for 8-10 hours.
4. Carefully remove from the slow cooker. The ribs should be tender and falling apart.
5. Serve and enjoy!
