Easy Crock Pot BBQ Ribs {Recipe}

The weather has been unbearably hot in the high 90's this week so what better way to get into the summer spirit by cooking up some delicious ribs. I. LOVE. RIBS. Douse them in BBQ sauce and I am a happy gal. Usually Hubs is the one cooking them up on the grill but since I am a huge fan of the crock pot, I decided to make them myself. 

These are the easiest ribs to make and they fall right off the bone. What more can you ask for? Pair it with some cole slaw and onions rings and it's just heaven in your mouth.


Ingredients
  • 4 pounds pork baby back ribs
  • salt and pepper
  • garlic powder, onion powder (1/2 tsp each)
  • 2 cups of your favorite BBQ sauce
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
Directions:
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Place ribs in baking dish and season with salt, pepper, garlic and onion powder. 
  3. Bake for 15 minutes and then turn over and bake for 15 more minutes.
  4. In a small bowl combine BBQ sauce, ketchup and brown sugar. 
  5. Place ribs in a large Crock Pot (or slow cooker). You can also use a liner if you want like I did for less mess. You can either cut or curl the ribs. 
  6. Pour the sauce on top and cook on low for 6-8 hours.
  7. If you want to caramelize the sauce, put the ribs back into the oven for 15 minutes at 400 degrees.

Do you use the Crock Pot to cook? What are some of your favorite recipes?

  17. I have never made ribs before in my life. I have always been afraid that I would end up with rubber tires on bones. But these look so tender and juicy that I am going to take the plunge. Also loving that it is done is a crock pot!
