Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups ketchup
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons seasoned salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon liquid smoke, optional
  • 2 pounds boneless country-style pork ribs

Directions

  1. In a 3-qt. slow cooker, mix ketchup, brown sugar, vinegar, seasoned salt and, if desired, liquid smoke. Add ribs; turn to coat. Cook, covered, on low 5-6 hours or until meat is tender.
  2. Remove pork to a serving plate. For sauce, skim fat from cooking liquid; transfer liquid to a small saucepan to thicken; bring to a boil. Cook 12-15 minutes or until sauce is reduced to 1-1/2 cups. Serve with ribs.
    To make ahead: In a large airtight container, combine ketchup, brown sugar, vinegar, seasoned salt and, if desired, liquid smoke. Add pork; cover and freeze. To use, place container in refrigerator 48 hours or until ribs are completely thawed. Cook as directed.
