Slow Cooked BBQ Ribs

I love cooking in my slow cooker.  I have cooked chicken, pork roast and even brisket.  The meats come out super tender and juicy.  The best part about the slow cooker is that you can set it early in the day and have the meat ready for dinner time.

I decided to make barbecue ribs in the slow cooker.  Place all of the ingredients in the slow cooker and just let it cook for a few hours.  This is a great way to have barbecue ribs all in one pot without having to add barbecue sauce.  When the cooking is done you will have super tender, delicious, falling off the bones ribs in a barbecue sauce.  

These ribs are great and the slow cooker did all of the work.  I cooked the ribs for 4 hours on high. The ribs turned out exactly how I wanted.  If you don't have a slow cooker, I suggest you get one and give it a try specially if you are a busy person.  


3 pounds  pork spareribs, cut into single ribs
2 cups ketchup
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 tbsp red wine vinegar
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp chili powder
2 tsp ground cumin
2 cloves of garlic minced
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper-optional

Place the ribs in the bottom of a slow cooker. In a medium bowl mix together all of the other ingredients.  Pour the mixture over the spareribs.  Cover and cook for 6-8 hours on low or 3-4 hours on high. 


  1. These ribs look so good. I'm going to buy a slow cooker to make them. Thank you for the recipe. I love your blog.

  2. Will this work the same with boneless country style ribs....or should we add more seasonings

    1. It will work the same..there is enough seasoning.
