Day 17: Sweet and Sour Country Ribs

This is a guest post from my sister, Gina. I ate this meal with her and it tasted wonderful. The flavor was great and the ribs just fell off the bone, they were so tender. Thanks, Gina!

Prep Time: 15 min
Total time: 6 1/4hr

2-4 lbs country style pork ribs (bone-in or boneless)
1/2 c ketchup
1/2 c packed light brown sugar
1/2 c cider vinegar
1 tablespoon mustard powder
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper

In slow cooker, whisk together ketchup, sugar, vinegar, mustard powder, cayenne, salt and pepper

Add ribs to slow cooker, and toss with sauce. Arrange ribs, bone side up in a single row. Cover; cook on high 6 hours (or on low, 10 hrs)

Serve ribs drizzled with pan juices.

This recipe was found in Everyday Food Oct 2008 magazine. It is a delicious and very easy recipe. We ate this with some tossed salad, baked beans, and rolls for dinner. It was great!


  1. I made these today with some buffalo ribs I had in the freezer. I have never made ribs before because I didn't know what to do with them. They turned out so good. We all loved them. So thank you for the recipe!

  2. I tend to make ribs for Sunday dinner a lot and this is the recipe I use everytime. We all really love it, even my 5 and 2 year olds.
