These ribs are awsome!

Top Review by NorthwestGal

These ribs tasted fantastic! But mine came out way overcooked and extremely tough on the outside, which I assume is attributed to the fact that the ribs undergo 3 different cooking methods - boiling, grilling, and then 3 hours in the slow cooker. I will definitely make these again, because they taste awesome (as the title so aptly states). But I will stick to just grilling or broiling them. Thank you for sharing your recipe, uncle @ ben. Made for Spring 2012 Pick-A-Chef.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. 1.Cut ribs into small portions of 2 or 3 bones each. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Season water a pinch each of salt, black pepper, and crushed red pepper to the water. Boil ribs in seasoned water for 20 minutes. Drain, and let the ribs sit for about a half an hour.
  2. 2.Meanwhile, preheat an outdoor grill for high heat.
  3. 3.Lightly coat the ribs with barbecue sauce. Cook the ribs over high heat for a 5 to 10 minutes on each side to get a nice grilled look to them.
  4. 4.Place grilled ribs in a slow cooker. Pour remaining barbecue sauce and one bottle of beer over the ribs; this should cover at least half of the ribs. Cover, and cook on High for 3 hours. Check ribs every hour or so, and add more beer if needed to dilute sauce. Stir to get the ribs on top into the sauce. The ribs are done when the meat is falling off the bone. The ribs were cooked completely in the first process, the rest is about flavor and texture.
