We like to serve these Slow Cooker BBQ Country Style Ribs with corn on the cob or our Slow Cooker Creamed Corn.
Our Copycat Famous Dave’s Cornbread Muffins and our Mom’s Easy Potato Salad are barbecue staples in our family.
To turn this into a freezer meal:
Add all ingredients to a gallon-sized freezer bag. Squeeze out as much air as possible and seal bag closed. Place freezer bag into freezer and it will last 60-90 days. When ready to use, spray slow cooker with non-stick cooking spray and dump ingredients from bag into slow cooker. Place the lid on top and cook on LOW heat for 8-9 hours or until ribs are completely cooked through. Follow the rest of the instructions as written.
