Tasty Crock Pot BBQ Country Style Pork Ribs

I found this recipe on and it is our new favorite! My husband said this was the best BBQ pork he’s ever had. (He may have been slightly biased) but I totally agree that it was incredibly tasty without being too strong in flavor. And the meat was so tender, it just fell off the bone.
The original recipe called for a hot and spicy BBQ sauce but I used our favorite Sweet Baby Ray BBQ original sauce and omitted the cayenne pepper and it was great! I'm sure it would be great with a spicy kick so feel free to use a spicy sauce and add some extra spice or jalapenos if you like.
Whether you like it just sweet or sweet & spicy, I am sure your family will love this great BBQ recipe!

Tasty Crock Pot BBQ Country Style Pork Ribs Recipe #60052

5 lbs country-style pork ribs
1 cup chopped celery
2 cups chopped onions
1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper
1 cup ketchup
1/2 cup yellow mustard
1 cup your favorite barbecue sauce
1 cup water
3 tablespoons dark cider vinegar
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon garlic salt
1 (14 1/2 ounce) can diced tomatoes

Boil the pork for 20-30 minutes OR pan fry the pork to decrease fat.

Mix all other ingredients together in a large enough bowl and stir to mix well.
Put pork in the crock pot, adding sauce as you go, until you get to about an inch from the top.
Use as much sauce as you can as it will be needed later to put over the rice.
With a big spoon, give a stir to blend all together.
Put on the lid, turn on high and let it cook for about 5 hours.
After that, you may want to keep it a little longer on low to keep it hot.
Serve this with some white rice, baked beans (or just pork & beans), coleslaw and some toasted garlic bread and you have yourself a meal.
Be sure to use lots of the sauce over the pork and rice.
