Crockpot Melt In Your Mouth BBQ Ribs

Hail the crockpot! One of the best inventions around since it makes weeknight cooking easy peezy. So I kept seeing pins on Pinterest about making crockpot ribs. Well, like many of us, I’ve never made ribs. Mainly fearing that I’ll botch a whole slab and then what a waste!?! Luckily I finally gave it a try and I was super impressed. I got the idea from a great blogger Amanda’s Cookin. My pictures don’t compare to Amanda’s and I have adapted the recipe so that anyone can make these easy ribs from home with little ingredients.  Slow Cooker Barbecued Country Style Ribs -

What you’ll need:

  • BBQ rub seasoning packet or your own personal rub recipe (the rub along with the sauce makes for a lot of flavor)
  • Your favorite BBQ sauce – unfortunately I cannot give away my recipe; I swore to a dear friend not to give away his family’s wonderful secret!  If I can ever convince him to sell the recipe you’ll be the first to know.
  • Slab of pork back ribs or baby back ribs
  • 1 sweet onion
  • 3 misc. bell peppers (you could use other veggies that you prefer but keep in mind these veggies will be at the bottom of the crockpot)

What to do:

  • Cut sweet onion and peppers but don’t dice!  Layer these veggies on the bottom of the crockpot
  • Cut your slab up so that it’s manageable in the crockpot, around every 3rd bone
  • Pat rub over each rib
  • Place each group of ribs along the crockpot, layering over the veggies

Succulent ribs

  • Coat the top of each rib with BBQ sauce and heat on high for 4 hours

  • After 4 hours coat ribs again with sauce and either place on a baking sheet in the oven at 400ºF for 10 minutes if you like your ribs crispy or continue to heat in crockpot.
