Wow, were these ribs super tender - falling off the bone, melt in your mouth deliciousness!  Originally we were going to do them on the BBQ, but with not a lot of BBQ experience behind us, using a slow cooker was the way to go.
I made a dry rub and let the ribs sit in the refrigerator for 3 hours.  Also, using homemade BBQ sauce made these tasty ribs all the better.  This BBQ sauce is so easy to make, takes no cooking time, and is super flavorful!  This meal was one easy, delicious, no fuss meal to make.
Dry Rub:
1 tsp. Garlic Powder
1 tsp. Smoked Paprika
1 tsp. Corriander
1/2 tsp. Cumin
Mix up the dry rub in a small bowl and set aside.
Salt and Pepper
2 racks of pork ribs
2/3 cup BBQ Sauce - or your favorite BBQ Sauce
1/2 an onion, sliced
Sprinkle the dry rub over the ribs, and rub in the spice all over.  Refrigerate for at least 3 hours.
Then season each side with salt and pepper.  Slice the ribs 2-3 ribs each slice.
Add the ribs to your slow cooker, then scatter the onions throughout.
Pour the BBQ sauce over each of the ribs.
Turn onto low and cook 6-7 hrs.
Once cooked, transfer the ribs to a platter.
Add extra BBQ sauce over each section of ribs.  Serve hot - and dive in!
Warning:  they are going to melt in your mouth with deliciousness.

  1. I've been seeing so many fantastic slow cooker recipes lately that I'm almost tempted to get one.... But I don't need another appliance that gets used rarely LOL. I bet I could do them on the stove (the wood stove) next winter, though.... I'll have to work on that.

    1. Katie - I sooo scored with my slow cooker - $2.00 at a garage sale! I bet you could do them on the wood stove - they would be fantastic!

  2. Oooh, slow cooked barbecue ribs are a divine food! Yours look AMAZING, Ina! A slow cooker is an essential appliance in my house. 🙂 I actually have at least seven of them (all different sizes, shapes, and brands) and they all get used. 😉

    1. Thanks Shirley! Wow...7 slow cookers! I am still learning to use mine. Prior to this I only ever used a slow cooker to heat up steamed towels for spa treatments...LOL which works great! 🙂
