Country Style BBQ Rib Sliders with Crunchy Slaw

Country Style BBQ Rib Sliders with Crunchy Slaw

We always look forward to a Country Style Pulled Beef or Pork slider once bbq season arrives and making these with Sylvia’s makes them even more delicious. Truth be told we barbecue all year round, but some things I save for summer and these Country Style BBQ Rib Sliders are one of them. A crunchy slaw goes perfectly with the savory filling, and I gild the lily with sliced jalapeño while my family prefers pickles. If you can find Sylvia’s products near you, I highly recommend them – but any of your favorite bbq sauces and rubs will work just fine.

  • 8-10 Country Style Ribs large size
  • Sylvia's Rib Rub'n More Seasoning or similar
  • Sylvia's Cookin’, Dippin’, and Moppin’ Sauce

Sandwich Sauce

  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp Sylvia's Rib Rub or similar
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice fresh squeezed (about 1/2 a lemon)


  • 2 cups cabbage shredded
  • 2 tbsp sandwich sauce or more if preferred

10-12 Slider Buns

    Sliced fresh jalapeno and/or dill pickle slices to top slaw (optional)


      • Heat oven 325F.


      • Place ribs on a foil lined baking sheet and liberally sprinkle all sides with the rib seasoning. Top with another sheet of foil and seal the edges. Bake around 3 hours or until the meat is tender.
      • Then brown ribs on a medium-medium high heat grill, liberally brushing with Sylvia's Cookin' Dippin' & Moppin' Sauce (or similar). Check at 5 to 10 minutes, applying more sauce to creat a nice baked on saucy crust. Remove and cool.
      • When cool enough to handle, remove the meat from the bone, shredding as you go. Apply more sauce to your taste and moisture preferrence. (This can be done a day ahead of time).

      Sandwich Sauce

      • In a small bowl or a jar with a lid, mix the sauce ingredients and stire or shake. Refrigerate until ready to assemble.

      Crunchy Slaw

      • Thinly slice cabbage into a shredded consistency, mix in 2 tbsp of the prepared sandwich sauce. Refrigerate until ready to assemble.


      • Spread each side of the bun with Sandwich Sauce, spoon in meat mixture, top with the slaw and pickle or jalapeno slice (optional).


      Alternate methods for cooking the Country Style Ribs: 
      • Grilled over low, indirect heat (or smoker)
      • Slow cooked in a crockpot or Instant Pot 
      If a grill isn't available for final browning, an oven broiler or frying pan on the stove will work perfectly. Just distribute the shredded meat in a thin layer, add some sauce and broil or pan fry until some crisping and brewing occurs around the edges.
