Barbecue without a barbecue! I made these for my now-husband when we were still dating. Love was in the air and so was the smell of these delicious ribs!

Delicious!! We really pigged out on these ribs! (pardon the pun) I have a very similar sauce recipe that I've been making for years, so I knew the flavor would be good, but I was really interested in the cooking method. I usually boil my ribs till tender, then add the cooked sauce and broil for 10 minutes. I liked that the 30 minute baking first, and then crock pot the rest of the day, freed up a lot more of my time. My newest (the largest) crock pot cooks too hot, so I should have called them done at about 4 hours, but they were in there for 6, until DH got home for dinner. They were starting to dry out a bit, so next time I'll adjust the cook time for my too-hot crock! :) Thanks for sharing, BlueDoxie! Made & enjoyed for the Spring 2012 Pick A Chef event.

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C).
  2. Season ribs with salt and pepper. Place in a shallow baking pan. Brown in oven for 15 minutes. Turn and brown another 15 minutes; drain fat.
  3. Mix sauce together in a bowl: ketchup, chili sauce, brown sugar, vinegar, oregano, Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce, salt and pepper.
  4. Place ribs in slow cooker (I use my largest, a 6-quart model). Pour sauce over ribs and turn until coated. Cook on low 6 to 8 hours or until ribs are tender.
