This is my very favorite pork rib recipe! Thank you so much for posting. I don't see how Carol G. could have had so much sauce leftover since it only makes 2 cups to begin with. It definitely must be added for the cooking process. Sometimes the ribs make more or less "juice", so if I need to, I mix a little cornstarch with water and mix it into the pot for the last 5 minutes to thicken it up a little bit.

Southern chef you are so correct in saying that these are tender and juicy. The ingredients combined into a great mild tasting recipe!! There was no one ingredient that over powered another. Here in Iowa, country-style pork ribs have the bone left in them and they are VERY meaty. I made to different recipes today, this one and Chinese Pork Ribs Chinese Pork Ribs. I will be making this one again. Thank you for sharing your recipe.

I tried this recipe for a casual dinner with our good friends. I love using the Crockpot as it allowed me to get the main ingredient ready with little fuss. The variations were that I cut back on the soy sauce (about 1/2 as we are very sodium conscious) and therefore cut the sweet ingredients so as to keep the balance. I also always brown the meat on a skillet to lock in the flavor. My guests really enjoyed the pork which was fork tender along with the onions and au jus.
