Really tasty, stick-to-your ribs (no pun intended) food! It comes together really nicely, and there is plenty of extra sauce to spoon onto your mashed potatoes.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine the onion, ketchup, vinegar, brown sugar, salt, Worcestershire, chili powder, and oregano in a 4- to 6-quart slow cooker. Stir in the ribs. Cook on low heat for 6 hours, or on high for 3-1/2 hours.
  2. Using tongs, remove the ribs from the cooker and arrange on a broiler pan. Heat the broiler.
  3. Pour the juices from the cooker into a bowl and place in the freezer for 10 minutes to hasten the separation of the fat. Remove and discard the fat. Pour the defatted juices into a saucepan; boil over high heat until reduced by half, about 15 minutes.
  4. Broil the ribs about 6 inches from the heat until browned. Serve with the sauce.
