These get a good sear under the broiler, then go into the slow cooker to become fall-apart tender. Enjoy them with great sides, or shredded on a bun. Either way, they're the most amazing ribs you'll ever have. —Shannon Copley, Upper Arlington, Ohio

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons paprika
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground chipotle pepper
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 3/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 4 pounds boneless country-style pork ribs
  • 1 bottle (18 ounces) barbecue sauce
  • 3/4 cup amber beer or reduced-sodium chicken broth

Directions

Preheat broiler. Mix first nine ingredients. Place pork in a foil-lined 15x10x1-in. pan; rub generously with seasonings. Broil 4-5 in. from heat until browned, 2-3 minutes per side.
Transfer to a 5-qt. slow cooker. Whisk together barbecue sauce and beer; pour over ribs. Cook, covered, on low until tender, 3-4 hours.
Remove ribs. Reserve 2 cups cooking juices; discard remaining juices. Skim fat from reserved juices. Serve with ribs. Yield: 10 servings.

Test Kitchen tips
  • Country-style are the meatiest of all pork ribs.
  • Look for highly marbled ribs; they might be labeled “pork shoulder country-style ribs”. Country-style ribs from the loin are leaner and won’t be as tender and moist.
  • Amber beers are fairly light with a hint of fruitiness that compliments the smoky flavors in the sauce.
