These BBQ Country Style Ribs are so tender and juicy. Everyone will love these and it’s only 5 ingredients! Customize them to your liking with your choice of BBQ sauce.

I cannot give these BBQ ribs enough props! These are seriously so tender, they fall apart. There are so many BBQ sauces out there sweet, spicy, tangy, or with different bases like mustard or tomato. The BBQ sauce option is great because you can choose whatever you like best or change it the next time you make it for something different.


Maybe the BEST thing about these ribs is that you just dump it all in the slow cooker, turn it on, walk away, and let the slow cooker do it’s magic. Trust me, because it smells to good, everyone will be asking, “Is it ready yet?” This recipe is a crowd pleaser!
