Drunken Ribs

I have had this recipe for years, but haven't made it in a while. I don't even know where I got it from. It's sooooo easy even Taylor could make it.  It's one of those "set it and forget it" recipes !!  I love ribs, but never got the knack of making the ones with the bones.  You know, baby back ribs.  The ones that make me want to say "Get in my belly".  I dug down deep to the bottom of the freezer and pulled out a package of country style ribs (OK, actually I made Tony do it).  I Threw them in the slow cooker and had an easy and delicious dinner.

Drunken Ribs

3 pounds of country style ribs

One large onion, coarsely chopped

One and one-half cups barbecue sauce, (I love Sweet Baby Rays)

One-half cup beer or apple juice, your choice (I used beer)

Add the ribs to the crock pot, then the chopped onions. Combine the bbq sauce with the beer or juice and pour the mixture over the ribs and onions. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours. If your sauce isn't thick enough for you, put it in a sauce pan and simmer for about 15 minutes to thicken it up right before serving !!

If you like, shred the slow cooked ribs and mix them with the onions and enough of the sauce to make pulled pork for sandwiches. Serve on buns with dill pickle slices and some potato salad and you've got yourself a meal!
