Slow Cooker Baby Back Ribs


Are you looking for a fool-proof recipe for your 4th of July party?  Look no further.  These ribs are super easy and absolutely delicious!  It's been so hot here lately that I decided to try making ribs in the crock pot. The result was fall of the bone tender ribs.  They tasted amazing, and we didn't have to stand out in the heat to make them!

I bought the ribs at Costco, and they come with the membrane already removed.  That is a huge timesaver for me!  I took another shortcut and basted the ribs with Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce.  Delicious!!  These ribs are going to be the main attraction at our 4th of July feast next week!




Slow Cooker Baby Back Ribs
(Printable Recipe)

Rub
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 Tbsp smoked paprika
1 1/2 tsp kosher salt
1 1/2 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1 tsp onion powder
2 tsp garlic powder

3 racks baby back ribs
BBQ sauce (Sweet Baby Ray's)

To make rub, whisk together all spices.  Set aside.

Remove the membrane from the back of the ribs.  Season both sides of the ribs with rub.  Slice racks in half. Place ribs vertically in a 6-quart slow cooker, with the larger cut bone side down and meat side out. Cook on low for 6-7 hours.

Remove ribs from slow cooker and place on baking sheet.  Brush with BBQ sauce and place under the broiler for 3-5 minutes, until BBQ sauce is bubbly.  Serve with additional BBQ sauce, if desired.

  3. You stand the ribs up on their bones - don't lay them down in the crockpot. This helps keep them out of the fat and juices

  17. Worked beautifully. Best ribs I have ever made and so simple. I wrapped two Idaho potatoes in foil and placed them in my oval crockpot too.

  20. Trying these tomorrow for the first time... can't wait. Only thing I decided to do different is brush ribs with liquid smoke then put the rub on and let sit overnight in a ziploc bag. Will let you know how they turned out.

  21. Can I use plain paprika instead of smoked?

    ReplyDelete
  22. I use my own rub that I made and its from a rib restaurant in st Louis I also place them on the grill instead of the broiler for a few minutes.

  23. These were delicious! My son had ribs at a restaurant a few weeks ago and said these were better.

  24. Made this and it's excellent...I let cook for 6 hrs and they fell off bones...think I would try cooking for a shorter time maybe 4 1/2 or 5 hrs.

  26. I've made this one twice. Excellent on both occasions.

  27. I'm having a hard time getting the ribs to stay up… they keep falling down on their backs or front. I've tried propping them up next to each other to keep them up, but they just keep sliding. Any tips?
