Spicy Country Ribs

This recipe will need to cook for 3 1/2 to 6 hours.


  • 4 pounds pork country ribs
  • 1/2 cup onion finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1/2 cup cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano


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 6 hours or on high heat for 3 1/2 hours. Using tongs, remove the ribs from the cooker and arrange on a broiler pan.

Preheat the broiler. Pour the juices from the slow cooker into a bowl and place in the freezer for 10 minutes to hasten the separation of the fat. Remove and discard the fat. Pour the defatted juices into a sauce pan; bring to a boil over high heat until mixture is reduced by half, about 15 minutes. Broil the ribs 6 inches from the heat until browned. Serve ribs with the sauce.
