Recipe by WI Cheesehead
From Glutenfreely.com. I used bone-in ribs and picked them out, then reused them to make pork broth in the slow cooker overnight. Very tasty. I also let it cook for 9 hours and it wasn't dry.

Used standard bacon and used one hour in a pressure cooker rather than 6 hours in a slow cooker. I also used pork ribs with the bone in. Great recipe, very savory and great when served with german potato dumplings and a glass of beer.

- 2 lbs boneless country-style pork ribs (6-7)

- 2 granny smith apples, peeled, thinly sliced (3 cups)
