Makes a sweet sauce that is nicely sticky so have lots of napkins! Great for days when the weather isn't good enough to grill outside!


  1. Place ribs, onion and garlic in crock pot.
  2. Cook on low for 8-10 hours, or until pork is cooked through and tender (your time may vary with your appliance).
  3. Drain ribs and onion from crock pot.
  4. Discard any juices from crock pot and return meat and onions to crock pot.
  5. Stir together barbecue sauce and jam until blended.
  6. Pour over ribs, stirring lightly to coat.
  7. Cook on high for 30 minutes or until sauce has thickened and ribs are glazed.

Loved it! I added a dry rub for the first part and for the second part used homemade grape jelly rather than plum. The sauce is delicious but I think it needs the dry rub too (I used garlic powder, onion powder and seasoning salt.) I cut the ribs into large chunks then browned them and then cooked 8 hours on low plus 30 on high. Thank you for posting Sue!

These are great tasting crockpot ribs even if mine did not turn out the way the chef said. I followed the recipe exactly, but my ribs fell apart and ended up more like pulled pork than ribs. Who cares? They tasted great anyway. This is a good weekday dish for a busy cook. I will make often. Thanks Sue L.

This is a great / easy dinner to come home to after a tough day skiing.. I also like to dry rub and brown the meat prior to slow cooking. To add a bit of tang, try mixing a little of Voodoo Chile's Porcus Infernum ( the world's best bacon hot sauce) in with the bbq sauce and jam. Really awesome, and the ribs are just soooo tender anyway ! And, BTW, I like my St Louis ribs like pulled pork ! These are not baby back ribs you know.
