Cook your ribs in your slow cooker
These ribs are super delicious and easy to make. I love making these slow cooked, savory, fall of the bone ribs any time of the year. Using my slow cooker makes this task even more simple. No need to go outside in the cold and wait for these ribs to get tenderized. The delicious smell your house will have from these tasty meat morsels is going to make you want to cook them more often.
We get our ribs from ButcherBox.com they are so tender and perfect for any occasion. I love that we can pull these baby back ribs right out of the freezer the night before to defrost and have a delicious rib dinner the next day!
To start making ribs normally you need to take the membrane off of the ribs. With this quick recipe there is no need to do that slippery task because the ribs will simply fall off the bones. To begin you just need some simple things. I always get my slow cooker out and I like to use slow cooker liners to make clean up easy.
- Barbecue sauce (Any kind you love) I use Kraft Hickory Smoke
- Andy’s Rub
- Garlic Rub
- Cayenne — an optional ingredient if you like a nice kick of heat!
Lay your ribs down on your work surface and rub all the wonderful spices into the meat. Using a high quality rub will ensure the taste goes deeply into the meat as it cooks. For easy clean up be sure to place a slow cooker liner in the pot. Next place your ribs standing one the bone edge with the fat side touching the slow cooker. The heat from the slow cooker comes from all sides. This will allow more surface area of the ribs to be in contact with he heat evenly. Then pour your favorite barbecue sauce onto the ribs leaving a little at the bottom to cook in. If the ribs fall over during the cooking process, don’t fret it just means they are cooking very well. As tempting as it may be to open the cooker leave it alone and do not raise the lid! It needs all the slow heat to cook. Lifting the lid will only make you wait longer for your yummy dish to finish.
Now that your ribs are cosy inside the slow cooker, plug it in and set it to cook slowly for at least 4-6 hours. After the ribs have cooked in your slow cooker gently place them onto a cookie sheet libarally brush some more barbecue sauce onto them. Heat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Place your sheet with ribs into the oven for a few minutes, keeping a very close eye on them it would be a heartbreaking shame if your ribs were to burn at this point. Wait for the sauces to caramelize and remove from the heat and serve. Enjoy!
