This is always my go-to recipe when I want to make ribs. I love the fact that I can just prep it and forget it for 7 hours in the slow cooker. By dinnertime I just brush the ribs with bbq sauce and broil for few minutes. They come out off the bone tender and juicy. I have a 4.5 QT Crock Pot and these fit in just fine.
Slow Cooker Ribs ( serves 8-10)
- Baby back pork ribs, about 6-7 lbs ( comes to around 2 racks)
- 2 tbsp sea salt
- 1 tbsp ground pepper
- 2 tbsp granulated garlic
- 2 tbsp smoked paprika
- 1 tbsp finely ground coffee
- 1/2 cup favorite barbecue sauce (or more if you like)
Rinse and pat dry the rack/s of ribs. In a small bowl mix all the spices including salt and pepper together. Rub the ribs generously on both side with mixture. Cut rib racks in four equal sections by holding on to the bone and sliding knife towards your left as you go down. Place rib sections inside your slow cooker curved side towards the wall of the pot so the bony side of the rib rack is facing center of pot see here how
Cook ribs of high for 6-7 hours until flaky when you insert fork in them. Before serving, turn the broiler on your oven on. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and place rib sections on it facing meat side up. Brush with your favorite barbecue sauce and broil for about 5 minutes or until bbq sauce is caramelized but not burned. Serve with your favorite sides such as corn bread,green beans, and Cabbage Slaw.
