Crockpot Braised Country Style Ribs

This week has been so crazy busy so far! And hot & muggy. Soooooo hot & muggy. Stress & being overheated do not look good on me. At all.

I’m definitely stretched pretty thin right now. The things that I need to do are stacking up faster than I’m able to get them done, and that’s never fun! And did I mention this heat? Oh I did? Well… it’s bad, y’all! I mean, it’s summer and I live in the South so it’s a given that the summers are going to be hot, but I swear it has been extra muggy this year. It’s hotter than a billy goat with a blowtorch! 

With all this heat & the to-do list that just won’t quit – I have been snuggled up to my crockpot tight. Ok, maybe not snuggled up…. That’d be a little much.

But I have been crockpotting the dickens out of our meals lately and I plan to do just that at least until early next week.

They had some boneless country style ribs at the butcher on a real good sale the other day so I grabbed a few pounds. Country style ribs are pretty affordable as it is – the sale just made the price even better.

I’ve made these braised style country style ribs in the crockpot for years & years & years – and they were our dinner last night too. I figured it’s about darn time I shared the recipe with all you. I make them way to often to not have this recipe on the blog!

They are super tender, so flavorful, & oh-so-easy. I think that you’ll love them as much as we do!
