Super easy fall-off-the-bone baby back ribs

Top Review by Crafty Lady 13

I purchased a rack of baby back ribs, cut it into fourths, brushed them with BBQ sauce, wrapped them tightly in aluminum foil and then stacked them ino my 6-quart crock pot. I cooked them on high for about 4 hours. When I came home, the house smelled wonderful. I took the ribs out of the crock pot and put them on the grill for about 5 minutes (brushing them liberally with BBQ sauce). The ribs were falling-off-the-bone tender. I think the slow cooking and the steam from the tightly sealed aluminum foil makes these ribs tender and moist. Now I don't have to wait for a day off to have BBQ ribs, I can just put them in the crock pot on low for 8 hours and come home to mouthwatering ribs. Thanks for this wonderful recipe, Simpel53. Made for Spring, 2009 PAC.
