Maple Slow Cooker Boneless Ribs

Total Time

Adapted from a recipe by Kimber at If you do not have real maple syrup, increase the amount to 1/3-1/2 cup. It will look like the amount of liquid is inadequate, but the meat will render plenty of juices!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Sprinkle ribs with pepper and rub into surface. Place meat in slow cooker.
  2. Combine remaining ingredients in a small bowl. Pour sauce over meat.
  3. Cook on low 6-8 hours or high 3-4 hours.

This was good but not fantabulous for us. I used bone in center cut ribs, cooked on low for five hours. I didn't have real maple syrup and I had NO maple taste at all. The next day these were very dry which indicates to me that they were cooked too long. I might try them again with a little tweaking (the recipe, that is)!

This was really good! I had a little over 3 lbs of boneless ribs so I doubled the ingerdients. I didn't have pure maple syrup so I up'd the amount to 3/4 cup. I also used ginger powder since I didn't have fresh. It made a nice sauce that was very flavorful. Will use the leftovers for shredded pork sandwiches or tacos.
