Crockpot Country Style Ribs

   My crockpot is one of my most used appliances. I love being able to throw a bunch of stuff in a pot, turn it on and go on my merry way. 
  Sometimes on Sunday afternoon, I start something in crockpot and cook it most of the way, let it cool and then put in refrigerator for Monday night. The first one home from work plugs the crockpot back in on low, and it's done when we're ready to eat. This is an especially good trick for Monday night football.
    Ribs in the crockpot was my first success with ribs. It's easy, doesn't require a lot ingredients or fuss. The best part is that they turn out so tender every time.

Crockpot Country style ribs
2 pkg. boneless country style ribs
1 T. garlic powder    
salt and pepper     
2 T. dry spice rub
1/2 each medium onion and green bell pepper,  sliced   
1 beer
1T. oil
1/2 bottle of BBQ  sauce

Sprinkle ribs with garlic powder, spice rub, salt and pepper. Brown in large skillet for a few minutes each side (10 min. total is plenty). 

Put ribs in crockpot and add beer. Turn crockpot on low and add onion and pepper on top of ribs. Sprinkle 1/4 t. salt on top of veggies. Let cook 6-7 hours. 

Drain liquid off. Add BBQ sauce carefully (ribs will be so tender they fall apart into chunks) and let warm in crockpot for 1/2 hour.

Serves 4-5. Recipe can be doubled if you've got a big enough crockpot.
