This is a very easy recipe (just the kind I like!) that I got from my sister-in-law. I like to make it in winter as a way to capture the barbecues of summer.


  • 3 pounds country-style pork ribs
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons white vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 4 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 1 beef bouillon cube
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper


  1. Place ribs in a 5-qt. slow cooker. Combine remaining ingredients and pour over ribs. Cover and cook on high for 1 hour; reduce heat to low and cook 3-4 hours longer. Remove ribs to serving platter and keep warm. Thicken cooking liquid for gravy.
