FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

Do I need to add any extra liquid?

Nope, that’s the beauty of this recipe. As the ribs cook, fat releases from the meat giving plenty of cooking liquid to the dish.

Are these spicy?

The pepperoncinis give the ribs a little kick, but nothing too spicy. I’d say more of a yummy flavor than heat. However, if you actually want heat and even more flavor, you can add ¼ cup or more of the pepperoncini liquid into the pot as well.

Can I use bone in instead of boneless country style ribs?

Certainly. You can use either one. They both work here.

What should I serve with the ribs?

As you see in some of my photos, we like it with mashed potatoes. The recipe I used here is my Crock Pot Mashed Potatoes. That gravy is SO good so it’s a great way to enjoy it. I think egg noodles would also be delicious. Of course you could go with any type of steamed veggie as well and a nice crisp, green salad!

How do you reheat country style ribs?

For reheating, I recommend keeping the leftover liquid and reheating everything together in the slow cooker. Alternatively, you can use a skillet or pot on the stove. The additional liquid is crucial for preventing them from drying out. The microwave would dry them out pretty fast.

How to store leftover Mississippi Country Style Ribs?

Keep leftovers in the fridge in an airtight container for about 3 days. Or freeze them for up to 3 months.

INGREDIENTS NEEDED: (SEE RECIPE CARD BELOW FOR THE FULL RECIPE)

  • boneless country style ribs – as I stated above, you could use bone-in. This honestly works with nearly every kind of pork you can think of.
  • au jus gravy mix– you could swap this out for an onion soup mix packet or make your own onion soup mix. If you need low sodium options then purchase the low sodium seasonings.
  • ranch seasoning – you can use store bought, or you can make your own homemade ranch seasoning.
  • salted butter – if you are worried about the amount of sodium, you can certainly use unsalted butter.
  • peperoncini peppers – you could also use banana peppers. This does not make this spicy at all. It just adds great flavor. If you add some of the juice, it will give it more of a kick.

Notes

  • Please refer to my FAQ’s (Frequently Asked Questions) and ingredient list above for other substitutions or for the answers to the most common questions.
  • If you want, you can separate the fat from the liquid, but it gives a ton of flavor, but that’s personal preference.
  • You can also use bone-in country ribs.
  • Instead of the ranch packet, you can make your own. Plus, you can swap the Au Jus gravy out for an onion soup mix packet.
  • To reheat, I suggest keeping the leftover liquid and reheating back in the slow cooker all together or in a skillet or pot on the stove. You really need that extra liquid to keep them from drying out.
  • Leftovers keep in the fridge for about 3 days, and freeze for up to 3 months.

    Making this for the second time tonight! So good! The sodium between the seasoning packets and the pepperoncini’s/juice has plenty.

  2. Question: Concerning substituting the pepperoncini for banana peppers, should you use the bottled banana pepper rings or fresh banana peppers from the garden?
    Awaiting your reply, Mary
