Okay, so this is my favorite barbecue sauce so far.  I found this recipe years ago in an Everyday Food magazine, and just tweaked it a little.  It’s fantastic on pork, chicken, or beef!

Sweet Vinegar Barbecue Sauce

Adapted from Martha Stewart Everyday Food Magazine

1 cup ketchup

1 cup packed light-brown sugar

1 cup apple cider vinegar

2 Tablespoons plain mustard

1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

2 teaspoons salt

1/2 teaspoon pepper

2 Tablespoons dried minced onions

4 Tablespoons unsalted butter, divided

In a medium saucepan whisk all of the ingredients together, and heat until the butter is melted and the sauce is warm.

If you’d like to make the country-style ribs from the Everyday Food Magazine, the directions are below.

You’ll need. . .

4 pounds of country-style pork ribs (frozen).

In your slow cooker, place the ribs with the fat side up next to each other.

Pour half of the sauce over the ribs and place the lid on top of the slow cooker, then set the timer on the cooker for 10 hours.

Put the remaining sauce in a covered container and place it in the refrigerator until the meat is finished cooking.

When the ribs are finished cooking, heat the sauce until warm.  Pour over individual servings of the meat and enjoy!
