Slow Cooker Boneless Country Style Pork Ribs

This post may contain affiliate links, please see my disclosure policy to learn more.

Country-style pork ribs are an inexpensive cut of meat that is actually cut from the shoulder and not the rib, they are thicker and meatier than ribs. They regularly go on sale in my area for under $2 a pound, so I usually have a pack in the freezer.

I line my Slow Cooker with Reynolds Slow Cooker Liner for easy cleanup. Add 3-4 lbs. Boneless Country Style Ribs. Sprinkle the seasoning mix on top and add the broth (you could substitute water, beer, or soda for the broth).

Cook on low for 8-9 hours or on high for 5-6 hours. At this point, the meat should be fall-apart tender. You can pour off the liquid from the crockpot and add your favorite barbecue sauce directly to the pot. I prefer to take the pork out of the crockpot, place it on a broiler pan, brush it with barbeque sauce, and broil for 3-4 minutes until the bbq sauce bubbles and caramelizes.
