Why fire up the smoker and tend to the temperature for 6 to 7 hours? Get yourself some meaty and economical country-style ribs and throw them in your slow cooker. BOOM. Mahogany-crusted finger-licking ribs with minimal effort. Don’t skip the broil step though; it’s what bumps up this recipe 6 more levels.



Special equipment:
a 6-quart slow cooker
  1. Mix the salt, paprika, black pepper and cayenne in a small bowl. Sprinkle both sides of the pork ribs with the spice mixture.
  2. Add the garlic and onion to a 6-quart slow cooker and place the pork ribs on top.
  3. In a medium bowl, mix together the peach soda and barbecue sauce and pour evenly over the top of the ribs.
  4. Cook until the pork is very tender, on low for 6 to 8 hours or on high for 3 to 4 hours.
  5. Transfer the ribs to a foil-lined baking sheet fitted with a wire rack. Position an oven rack a couple of inches away from the broiler and set to broil on high.
  6. Add 2 tablespoons of the liquid from the slow cooker to a small bowl, then add the peach preserves and pickled cherry pepper relish. Stir everything to combine.
  7. Generously brush the sauce over the top of the ribs and broil until the glaze is caramelized and bubbling, 5 to 7 minutes.
