I cooked these Crock Pot Country Style Ribs for dinner this week and thought I’d share the recipe again so you can enjoy them too!


Crock Pot Country Style Ribs (gluten free!)

A super easy and delicious recipe from!


  • 3-4 lbs. country style ribs
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Lawry's Seasoning Salt to taste
  • 1 and 1/2 cups barbecue sauce (Jack Daniels Sauce is delicious!)
  • 1 tablespoon Liquid Smoke


  1. Coat crock pot with olive oil. Brown ribs in a heavy skillet in about 1 tablespoon olive oil. Sprinkle ribs with Lawry's Seasoning Salt and place in crock pot. Cover with barbecue sauce (we like Jack Daniels Sauce) and Liquid Smoke. Cook on low 6-8 hours.


Alternate Directions

Brown ribs in a stainless steel or iron skillet with enough olive oil to coat the pan. Sprinkle ribs with Lawry's Seasoning Salt and place in a 9x11 glas baking dish. Cover ribs with BBQ sauce. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour and 30 minutes or until ribs are cooked in center. Baste with BBQ sauce every 30 minutes if desired.

The crock pot ribs are more tender. The baked ribs are firmer.

      Most bottled BBQ sauces that I have found are gluten free. Just look out for soy sauce or barley malt in the ingredient list. We happen to like Jack Daniels Master Blend on our ribs, but it does contain high fructose corn syrup.

      Our favorite BBQ sauce is Williamson Brothers, but it is not available in all areas and they started adding high fructose corn syrup within the last year.

      You can probably find BBQ sauce labeled as GF, but we have a strict budget so I try to use regular products as much as possible. Hope that helps! :)

    Do you stack the ribs? I have a round crockpot, and am not sure how to fit enough for 5 people in at a time without stacking them. Thanks!

        Thank you Kimberlee for this wonderful recipe! I’m looking forward to trying it. Also, I want to say thanks for providing alternate instructions for preparing these in the oven. I have a crockpot, but sometimes I’d like to do a crockpot recipe in the oven. I really don’t know how to convert for oven cooking, so I’m glad you’ve done that!

    I just started using your website, and I think it’s wonderful. Thank you for sharing all your work! Here’s my problem – I don’t know much about meat cuts but I wanted to try your country-style rib recipe. We have baby-back ribs on sale at my grocery store. Will they cook up the same as country-style ribs? Thank you!

      Hi Becky–The only thing that I know is that the country style ribs have more meat on the bones, so I would assume that means that baby back ribs would take less time to cook. Sorry I can’t be of more help.

    OOOh! I vote for the crock ribs as i know they will be fall apart delish! This reminds me of why I love my crock pot so much!

    These look good. You are making me hungry. I have a question for you. Just from reading your blog I feel that we share some of the same thoughts, goals and viewpoints. We are different too – I work outside the home and only have 1 child. But I love the Lord, saving money, home making, crafts. I’ve been trying to make some personal changes in my life. And I’ve been reading some different books. And a couple of them have mentioned doing something for yourself each month as a reward for meeting your goals toward these changes – could be something small but something you look forward to as a special treat. I’ve also recently had a friend tell me the same thing and she didn’t even know about my reading. She just knows I’m kind of struggling with depression. Maybe this is the Lord speaking to me….I’m certainly praying about it. But here’s the thing….I have no idea what to choose. It feels selfish to me. And we don’t have a lot of extra money. My friend suggested I color my hair each month. Nothing wrong with that but I never have and I’m really not interested. And I can’t afford it. Then she suggest a mani and/or a pedi. Again not really interested and can’t afford it. She suggested a trip to the mall….not interested. So my question to you is do you have something you treat yourself to each month? Sorry to be long winded.

    I definitely think that’s a good idea. I agree with you on the mani-pedi-not my thing, but there are several things I do like: going for walks in the woods, a nice park or at the beach. The outdoors really make me feel close to the Lord. I also like visiting neighboring downtown areas and browsing antique shops. I rarely buy anything, but love to look. My husband and I will do this for a date sometimes. I also like making everyone leave (or waiting until they’re all in bed!) and watching a good movie on DVD. We check ours out at the library.

    I have also taken myself out for the occasional specialty ice cream. It’s a splurge at $3.00, but something I really like. Any of these suggestions are good with a friend too!

    I hope this helps. Feel free to email me if you have any other questions: :)

    I love going to the used book store. It is in a little shopping center with a wildlife/nature store that I like just looking through as well as browsing through some of the other shops.
