Slow Cooker Barbecued Ribs

These ribs are so good! They're fall off the bone tender and have great flavor. My whole family loved them, especially my husband. I'm so glad I found another great crockpot recipe. This one is from The Food Nanny Cookbook. I made a sauce/gravy from the drippings in the crockpot and it was so good served over the ribs. I highly recommend this recipe!

Slow Cooker Barbecued Ribs

4 lbs country-style pork ribs (you could probably use country style beef short ribs too)
1 can tomato soup
1/2 cup cider vinegar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1/4 teaspoon celery salt
1 teaspoon chili powder

drippings from slow cooker
2 tablespoons cornstarch

Place ribs in slow cooker. In a bowl combine soup, vinegar, brown sugar, soy sauce, celery salt, and chili powder. Pour over meat. Cover and cook on low for 7-8 hours or high 3-4 hours. Remove ribs to a platter and cover tightly with foil to keep them hot while you make the sauce.

Strain juices from the slow cooker into a large measuring cup. Allow to sit for a minute and then spoon off as much of the fat as you can from the top. Pour juices into a saucepan. In a small bowl mix 2 tablespoons cornstarch with enough water to make it smooth and pourable.  Whisk this cornstarch mixture into the hot juices and bring to a boil. Boil until thickened. Serve over the ribs.
