    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.

    I used Sweet Baby Ray's Sweet %u2019n Spicy barbecue sauce which has a great spicy taste, and it was go good in this recipe! This is great to make when you are busy and can't be home slaving all day over the stove. It cooked all day while I was at work and then when I got home I finished it and we were ready to eat in less than an hour. Served the ribs with Potato Salad and Cole Slaw with freshly made biscuits hot out of the oven!

    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! Made for photo forum's Crockpot Event, see my rating system as I rate tougher than most.

    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.

    hands down the best ribs ever! I used boneless beef ribs which worked very well, and grape jam instead of plum. I also used a beef rub and browned the beef beforehand. Definately sharing and saving the recipe!

    I followed the recipe exactly except I used apricot jam instead of the plum jam. The sauce was delicious, the meat tender. My kids even loved it, which means I'll be making this again. Excellent! Thanks!
