Slow Cooked BBQ Ribs (For Crock Pot)

Total Time
10hrs 10mins
Prep 10 mins
Cook 10 hrs

This is the most perfect recipe for ribs. You can't get them in a restaurant better than this! The meat falls off the bone as you take them out of the crock!


  1. Do not pre-heat the slow cooker.
  2. Dice up the onion, add to crock pot.
  3. Rub the ribs with salt and pepper, add to crock pot.
  4. Dump BBQ sauce on top.
  5. Cook on low setting for 8-10 hours.
  6. Try not to lift the lid too much.
  7. The meat will FALL OFF THE BONE!

Very tender and delicious! I think next time I will add the bbq sauce the last hour of cooking though, and drain some of the liquid off first. I found the sauce to be too watery for my tastes, but I will definately make this again! Even my hubby who normally doesn't like ribs thought they were great! Thanks for posting a great recipe!

I'm not a big pork fan, but these looked to be so tender that I just had to try them. I can't have Masterpiece sauce because of the high sodium content, so I substituted homemade "Smoky Sauce for Ribs" and I posted the sauce recipe today.

OUTSTANDING!!!! Who would have ever thought such a simple recipe could make such tasty ribs. But, it does. I have a 5 year old who is an extremely picky eater, but he tore into these like there was no tomorrow. A real winner. I can't wait to make them again. By the way, don't try to pick them up by the bone, it will just fall out......
