These ribs are meatier than baby-backs and tend to have fewer bones. Serve them with biscuits and cole slaw on the side.

Ingredients

  1. Check 1 small onion, finely chopped (1/2 cup)
  2. Check 1/2 cup ketchup
  3. Check 1/2 cup cider vinegar
  4. Check 1/4 cup brown sugar
  5. Check 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  6. Check 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  7. Check 1 teaspoon ground chipotle chili powder
  8. Check 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  9. Check 4 pounds pork country ribs

Directions

  1. Combine the onion, ketchup, vinegar, brown sugar, salt, Worcestershire, chili powder, and oregano in a 4- to 6-quart slow cooker. Stir in the ribs. Cook on low heat for 6 hours, or on high for 3 1/2 hours.
  2. Using tongs, remove the ribs from the cooker and arrange on a broiler pan. Heat the broiler. Pour the juices from the cooker into a bowl and place in the freezer for 10 minutes to hasten the separation of the fat. Remove and discard the fat.
  3. Pour the defatted juices into a saucepan; boil over high heat until reduced by half, about 15 minutes. Broil the ribs about 6 inches from the heat until browned. Serve with the sauce.
