Ribs in the Crockpot

Ribs in the Crockpot

This is an incredibly easy way to prepare tender, fall-off-the-bone ribs. This recipe works well with many different types of ribs. I have prepared baby back, spare, country-style, and rib tips in the crockpot with great success.

I’m from Texas, and I like my ribs wet, sopping with tomato based BBQ sauce. If you like dry ribs, you don’t have to add the BBQ sauce.

Cut the ribs into 3 – 4 rib sections (if need be).

Rub the seasoning all over the ribs and place them in the crockpot. Spraying the crockpot with cooking spray before adding the ribs makes clean-up easier.

Cook the ribs on high for 3 to 4 hours or on low for 6 to 8 hours or until the meat is falling off the bone. Add BBQ sauce to coat the ribs about an hour before done cooking, if you wish. Once done, let the ribs rest 10 minutes before serving.

Rib Rub

2 tablespoons kosher salt
1 tablespoon brown sugar
2 teaspoons paprika
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoon rubbed sage
1/4 – 1/2 teaspoon ground cayenne
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

Combine all the ingredients. Store in an air-tight container.

  1. I love this idea! Most recipes for ribs are very labor-intensive. If you’re interested, I’d love for you to share a post the weekly blogger link up I host on Tuesdays. All you need is the URL of a post you’d like to share, and it’s a great way to network! I wrote up a better explanation on my main menu under ‘Tell em Tuesdays’ if you’d like more info.
