Easy Recipes for Crock Pot Ribs

It’s easy to make mouth watering, fall off the bone pork ribs when you’re cooking with a crock pot.  Crock pots are perfect for cooking ribs because they cook at such a low temperature over a long time.  The covered slow cooker seals in the juices of the meat while it’s cooking.  A broiler may be used before or after the slow cooking to achieve a nice sear on the ribs.  Here are some easy recipes for crock pot ribs that you can make in your home without the use of a grill.

 

 

Crock Pot Barbecue Ribs

 

 

What you need:

 

  • 3 lbs baby back pork ribs
  • 1 regular size bottle barbecue sauce (10 -15 oz)
  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • barbecue rub

 

What you do:

 

  • Cut ribs into serving size pieces, but small enough to fit in your crock-pot.  Rub ribs thoroughly with barbecue rub.  Broil for 10-15 minutes.  Ribs should be nicely seared, but not blackened or charred. 
  • Put ribs over the onion in a 4-6 quart crock-pot.  Pour barbecue sauce over the ribs.  Cover and cook on low for 6-9 hours.  Ribs should be falling off the bone when done.

  • Place ribs under broiler for 10-15 minutes and broil.  Ribs should be nicely seared, but not blackened or charred.  Add ribs, onion and marinade to the crock-pot.  Cook on low for 8-10 hours.
