No one ever believes how little effort it takes to make these tender, juicy ribs. The flavor of the lightly sweet and tangy sauce penetrates through the meat as the ribs simmer in the slow cooker.

"These ribs are so simple to prepare," confides Denise Hathaway Valasek of Perrysburg, Ohio. "Just brown them, then combine with the sauce ingredients in your slow cooker. Serve them at noon...or let them cook all day for falling-off-the-bone tenderness."
If you're looking for a change from typical barbecue ribs, you'll enjoy this recipe my mom always prepared on birthdays and special occasions. The tender ribs have a slight sweet-and-sour taste that my family loves. I usually serve them with garlic mashed potatoes and a salad or coleslaw.
