The Best Slow Cooker Ribs

The Best Slow Cooker Ribs are almost a crime not to make.  They are fall off the bone delicious and you won’t spend all day having to pay attention to them.  The one thing I find about cooking ribs is they require a lot of time and attention, but when you put them in the slow cooker you really can set them and let them do their magic.  If you love the smokey flavor of ribs off the BBQ or the smoker you can add a little liquid smoke and you will have that amazing smokey touch without all the hassle.

Ribs are such a great meal to make and are so fun to eat because you really can enjoy getting all that sticky, warm and delicious sauce all over your face and hands.  The Best Slow Cooker Ribs really are finger licking good.

How do you cook ribs in the crock pot?

  • Spray inside of crock pot with non-stick spray.
  • Remove inner skin from ribs and cut ribs in half to fit inside the crock pot.  Season with salt and pepper.
  • Combine BBQ sauce( I used Sweet Baby Rays),  brown sugar, liquid smoke, Worcestershire sauce, cayenne pepper, minced garlic, and Franks red hot sauce in a mixing bowl.
  • Place half of the ribs in crock pot and cover with half of the BBQ mixture, place the other half of the ribs on top and cover with remaining half of the BBQ mixture.
  • Cover and cook on low for 8 hours or high for 4 hours
  • Once ribs are done transfer to a baking sheet and broil on high for 8-10 minutes.

How do you slow cook ribs in the oven?

If you do not have a slow cooker or would rather make your ribs in the oven they will still come out delicious and here is how you do it:

  • Pre-heat oven to 200 degrees
  • Season ribs with seasoning salt or salt and pepper and cover with marinade.
  • Place ribs meat side down on a large sheet pan ( you may have to cut the rack of ribs in half and use 2 baking sheets).  cover with foil and cook for 4-5 hours.
  • Remove from oven and carefully flip ribs over.  Cover with more marinade and place them back in the oven, uncovered for an additional 20-30 minutes.  Serve warm right out of the oven.
