An easy recipe for cooking ribs in the Crock-Pot is the Easy Slow Cooker Country-Style Ribs recipe available at KraftRecipes.com. This recipe uses bottled barbecue sauce and spices that can all be added directly to the Crock-Pot.
To make Kraft's Easy Slow Cooker Country-Style Ribs, place 4 to 5 pounds country-style pork ribs in the Crock-Pot. Cover the ribs with two 18-ounce bottles barbecue sauce, half of a small chopped onion and 2 minced garlic cloves. Top with 1 tablespoon red pepper flakes, 1 teaspoon black pepper and 1 tablespoon lemon juice. Add 1 tablespoon of vinegar to each of the empty barbecue sauce bottles and shake the bottles. Pour the vinegar into the Crock-Pot, then cook everything for about six to eight hours on low.
