Slow Cooker Baby Back Ribs – THE BEST ribs! SO easy! Coat baby back ribs in a homemade BBQ rub and slow cook in the crockpot. Finish with some BBQ sauce. These are better than any restaurant!
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!
