Recipe by MsKittyKat
I use country ribs for this recipe because they are meatier than baby-backs and tend to have fewer bones. You could however, make this with baby-back ribs and reduce the cooking time somewhat. I like to serve them with biscuits and cole slaw on the side.

I found this recipe at myrecipes.com (with almost the same blurb at the beginning, by the way) and intended to share it here. This is a wonderful recipe - cheap, tasty, easy.
- 1 small onion, finely chopped (1/2 cup)
- 1⁄2 cup ketchup
- 1⁄2 cup cider vinegar
- 1⁄4 cup brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon kosher salt
- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1 teaspoon ground dried chipotle powder (www.penzeys.com is a good source)
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano
- 4 lbs country-style pork ribs
Directions See How It's Made
- Combine the onion, ketchup, vinegar, brown sugar, salt, Worcestershire, chili powder and oregano in a 4 6 quart slow cooker.
- Stir in the ribs.
- Cook on low heat for 6 hours, or on high for 3 ½ hours.
- Using tongs, remove the ribs from the cooker and arrange on a broiler pan.
- Heat the broiler.
- 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.
- Broil the ribs about 6 inches from the heat until browned.
- Serve with the remaining sauce on the side.
