  • 3-3 ½ lbs boneless country style ribs
  • 2 Tbsp fresh orange juice
  • 1 Tbsp fiesta or taco seasoning [I used Weber]
  • 1 Tbsp barbecue seasoning [I used Barbecue Magic]
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp brown sugar
  • orange zest [optional]
  • 2 cups barbecue sauce [use your favorite]


  • Spray the inside of a 6 quart slow cooker with cooking spray and set it on the low setting.
  • In a small mixing bowl, mix the orange juice, olive oil, brown sugar and seasonings to form a paste. Drizzle the ribs with the paste, then rub it evenly into each rib on all sides.
  • Arrange the ribs in the bottom of the slow cooker and top with the orange zest. Cover and cook on Low for 6 hours or until pull apart tender.
  • After 6 hours, uncover and drain the liquid from the slow cooker. Drizzle two cups of your favorite barbecue sauce over the ribs.
  • Cover and cook on low for an additional 1-2 hours, then keep warm until serving.
  • Enjoy over rice pilaf, on tortillas or a kaiser roll with a side of creamy coleslaw.


For these ribs I used Anna Mae's Smokey Sweet Sauce made by Robert Rothschild Farm.
