Easy Crock Pot Ribs Fall Off the Bone Tender

04 October 2017

I wanted to share a super easy painless way to make some delicious, tender, fall-off-the-bone ribs: we use the crock pot! If you are a vegetarian or have an aversion to meat, you will not want to continue reading this post. Winking smile

If we are having guests I buy the Costco or Sam’s Club baby back ribs pack and cook them all. I usually figure 3-4 ribs for adults and 1-2 for kids. If it is just our family (7 of us) I freeze half for later. Cut the racks in half with kitchen scissors and season them up good with rib seasoning, salt & pepper – rub it all in really well. We love the Weber smokey mesquite (find at most grocery stores), Costco also has a great rib seasoning.

Stack them up in the crock pot – make sure the lid can fit on securely. They can all fit in my 6 quart.

Cook them on low for 6-8 hours. The meat will be already falling off the bone when you take them out – be very gentle with them!

Then we take them out to the grill – squirt bbq sauce on them and then brush it in.

Grill on both sides for about 5 minutes or until the sauce caramelizes. If you don’t want to use the grill, just put them on a baking sheet lined with foil and stick them under the broiler for around 5 minutes and then flip and do the same on the other side.

Serve with extra bbq sauce. They are soooo good! Enjoy Smile Click here for printable recipe.
