This is one of the easiest, and most delicious rib recipes you're gonna come across...I promise. There's a little bit of sweet heat on these tender braised ribs and they are easy peasy with one-pan-clean-up!
I first made this recipe on the stove top, but I wanted an easier recipe so I adjusted the cooking method for a slow cooker. I am so glad I did! This is probably one of the best rib recipes you'll come across! Maple syrup and Sriracha gives a nice mild sweet and spicy flavor to the boneless ribs.

How to make it:
Not much to say here...put all the ingredients in the slow cooker, whisk it together, add the ribs, and cook about 4-6 hours.
I usually serve these with Gouda grits and so I've included that in the recipe card below.
Are there other names for Country Style ribs?
Different grocers often label country style ribs as Boneless Country Style, Country Style or Chuck Ribs.
What is Sriracha sauce?
Sriracha sauce, also known as "rooster sauce" is a hot chili sauce supposedly developed in Sri Racha, Thailand. It is a red pepper sauce that ranks between 1,000-2,500 SHU (Scoville Heat Units) on the Scoville Heat Index. To give you an idea of the degree of heat, Tabasco sauce ranks on the SHU between 2,500-5,000 on the Scoville index.
