Crockpot Ribs


I never knew you could cook ribs in crookpot until I came across the “Dem Ribs” post on http://www.reddit/r/slowcooking by /u/jrstelle.


The post is entertaining and delicious. Since then we have only cooked ribs in a crockpot and I have adapted my own recipe for them. Below is my recipe. Both are delicious.

Time: 8 slow cooker hours + 15 minutes of prep

Skill Level: SOOOOooooo easy

Amount: 1 whole rack of ribs

You need:

  • 1 rack of ribs
  • BBQ sauce of your choice (We prefer Stubs bbq sauce)
  • 2 Tbl chili powder
  • 1  Tbl smoke paprika
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp black pepper

Do this:

  1. In a small bowl mix the chili powder, paprika, cumin, garlic powder, salt and pepper. You can adjust this dry rub to your own tastes obviously.
  2. Cut your rack of ribs in half
  3. Smother the two halves with the dry rub. Really rub it on/into the meat.
  4. Place your ribs on their sides in the slowcooker so that they sort of stand up and don’t lay on top of one another
  5. ribs before cooking
  6. Drizzle half of your bbq sauce over the ribs.
  7. Cover and cook 8 hours on low.
  8. Take the racks out and place on a cookie sheet. Broil them for about 5 minutes to get a crispy top.
