These spicy country ribs are meatier than baby-backs and tend to have fewer bones. Serve them with biscuits and coleslaw on the side.

Real Simple MARCH 2004

  • Yield: Makes 4 servings
  • Prep time:15 Minutes
  • Other:6 Hours, 45 Minutes

Ingredients

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

Preparation

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 for 6 hours, or on high for 3 1/2 hours. Using tongs, remove the ribs from the cooker and arrange on a broiler pan. Heat the broiler. Pour the juices from the 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 saucepan; boil over high heat until reduced by half, about 15 minutes. Broil the ribs about 6 inches from the heat until browned. Serve with the sauce.
