1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
½ tsp salt
Several grinds of black pepper
½ tsp chili powder, or to taste
1 four-pound package country-style ribs
1 cup prepared barbecue sauce
¼ cup Worcestershire sauce
¼ cup teriyaki sauce
¼ cup soy sauce
¼ cup orange juice
A few dashes of hot sauce (such as Frank’s or tabasco)
Mix together first five ingredients and rub this on one side of the ribs. Add the meat to the slow cooker.
Mix the rest of the ingredients in a medium-sized bowl and add to the slow cooker (liquid will not cover the ribs). Set the temperature to high and cook for four to five hours.
Put the rubs to one side and pour the sauce into a bowl. Let sit in fridge until a layer of fat rises to the top, which can be easily flaked off. Return ribs and sauce to the slow cooker and reheat.
Serve with plenty of napkins. Avoid wearing ruffled shirts or lace jabots.
