This is my first time ever having Country Ribs. I don't know exactly what I was waiting for! I think most people shy away because the meat has a lot of marbling and without the proper amount of cook time, these can be VERY tough to chew! Well, fellow Slow-cookers! We don't have to worry about that, do we?????? The slow cooker cooks these PERFECTLY!!!!!! TENDER is the word of the day here!
I made a super simple rub to put on these and then just smothered them in Sweet Baby Ray's Honey Chipotle BBQ Sauce! Simple right?! Even the most beginning novice cook can do this! I promise!!!! People will think you are a TOTAL rockstar when you make these! Don't like Honey Chipotle BBQ Sauce? Well, choose whatever BBQ sauce you like!!! They will still be delicious!
My rub contained Tastefully Simple's Onion Onion! It is SOOO good! There's so much you can do with it! Use it in soups, to season meat, as a dip with some sour cream.....so many possibilities! You can order it from Tina here!
We served our with a side salad and Honey Glazed Carrots. They are sweet and delicious! For the honey glazed carrots, it's very easy! Melt about 2 Tbsp. butter in a pan, add about 2 Tsp. lemon juice, 1 bunch of carrots, chopped into 2" pieces, salt and pepper. Cook them on a medium heat for about 8-10 minutes. Voila! Add some fresh parsley at the end if you have it!
