Slow Cooker Barbecue Ribs


  • 2 Large Slabs of Pork Ribs
  • ¼ Cup Broth (Beef or Chicken-either works fine, you could even use water)
  • 40 oz. Bottle of your favorite BBQ Sauce *I didn’t need that much but it’s what I had and didn’t measure but it leaves extra for dipping.
  • Salt, Pepper and Garlic Powder to taste


  1. Portion 2 slabs to allow them to fit in the slow-cooker easily.
  2. Season each piece with salt, pepper and onion salt.
  3. Cover bottom of Slow-cooker with BBQ sauce.
  4. Add broth. (I only do this so the BBQ sauce doesn’t burn up and this step could possibly be skipped)
  5. Place sectioned/portioned ribs into slow-cooker, brushing them with BBQ sauce as you set them in.
  6. Layer them in so they all fit.
  7. Cook on low for 8-10 hours or until they fall off the bone.
  8. Remove from slow-cooker and transfer them to a foil lined baking sheet.
  9. Brush each portion with BBQ sauce.
  10. Broil for 5 minutes or until the sauce starts to bubble and caramelize.
  11. Remove from broiler let cool slightly.
