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.
