Barbecue Crock Pot Ribs Recipe

I think I've finally figured out ribs in the slow cooker (WOOHOO!) After reading through a few suggestions on how to cook ribs in the crockpot, I made these today and they were perfect.
What more could a girl ask for? 🙂
Here's the trick: do NOT just put the ribs in the slow cooker.
Menu Planning Note: You can also find this recipe in our Slow Cooker Menu Planning Made Easy Set!
(I know, I know . . . that takes a little of the fun out of slow cooking, but I promise spending a few minutes to prepare those ribs in the morning will reward you with some fall-apart-heavenly ribs!)
Allow just thirty minutes in the morning to pre-bake them in the oven, and then let your slow cooker to the rest of the cooking for you. These were so good that my family declared them better than Logan's Roadhouse, and liked them as much as our favorite rib recipe for the grill.
Yup, I was a rockstar at our house this week.
Here's the Crock Pot Ribs recipe if you'd like to be a rockstar today too. 🙂
Slow Cooker Barbecue Ribs Recipe
- Salt To Taste
- Pepper To Taste
- Garlic Salt To Taste
- 1 Bottle Barbecue Sauce Any you like - we use Sweet Baby Ray's

Pork Long Country Style Ribs, or Pork Sirloin Chops
- Season ribs with salt, pepper and garlic salt.
- Bake at 350 in oven for 15 minutes, then turn ribs over and bake another 15 minutes.
- Transfer ribs to slow cooker (you may need to cut them to fit into Mrs. Potts!) 🙂
- Pour bottle of barbecue sauce over top of the ribs.
- Cook for 6-7 hours on low.
- Serve along with extra barbecue sauce (optional).
If sauce is too thin when cooking time is done, drain sauce from ribs, and pour into a sauce pan. Combine 1 teaspoon cornstarch with a small amount of cold water, stir into sauce, and bring sauce to boil. Cook until sauce has reached desired thickness.
If you don't have any barbecue sauce at the house – this homemade bbq sauce recipe has tons of rave reviews and is worth a shot!
