Welcome to this slow cooker/crockpot blog. I believe slow cookers are the best thing to happen to modern day cooks. I used mine often when I worked outside the home and continue to do so even in retirement. It is so nice to put food on and forget about it. Slow cookers also allow us to cook many things we would normally have to use the oven for; what a relief in hot Texas weather! Some of these recipes are mine, many are ones I have collected over the years.

4 lbs bone-in country-style pork ribs
2 tsp salt, divided
1 medium onion, chopped
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 cup apple butter
1 cup ketchup
1/2 cup lemon juice
1/2 cup orange juice
1 tbsp A-1 steak sauce
1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1 tsp minced garlic
1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce

Cut the ribs apart if necessary to fit into a 5-quart crock pot/slow cooker and trim away any excess fat.  Sprinkle half the salt over the ribs and set aside.

In a bowl, combine the remaining salt with the rest of the ingredients; blend together well.  Pour half of the mixture into the bottom of the slow cooker.

Place the ribs in the cooker over the sauce; top with the remaining sauce.

Place lid on cooker and cook on high for 6 to 7 hours.
