To pair with our Loaded Baked Potato Bar the other night, I knew I wanted some kind of meat.
So, I went to our local grocer and took at look at what was on sale, annnnnnd…. it was pork ribs!
I got two racks and because wanted to get as much lazing around time on my weekend as possible, decided to throw em in the slow-cooker.
They were perfect! Fall of the bone tender, and moist and delicious! Also, so easy.
- 2 racks of pork ribs
- 1 Tablespoon Salt
- 2 Tablespoons Black Pepper
- 3 Tablespoons Garlic Powder
- 2 Tablespoons Onion Powder
- 1 Tablespoons Chili Powder
- 4 Tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce
- 10 ounces BBQ Sauce
- Cut each rack into thirds, or whatever size will comfortably fit to layer in your slow-cooker.
- Combine your spices and pat into each section of rib.
- Place a section of rib in the bottom of the slow-cooker and splash with a teaspoon of the Worcestershire sauce and cover with a a bit of the BBQ sauce.
- Repeat with each section of ribs. I had to pile mine up high and then place one section on either side to get them all to fit.
- Pour the rest of the BBQ sauce in the slow cooker, retaining two ounces for later.
- Cook on low for 8 hours, or high for 4 hours.
- - You can be done here, and just enjoy your delicious meat, OR continue with the next steps.
- Heat oven to 400 degrees.
- Section each rib individually and place on a foil lined baking tray.
- Brush each rib with the remaining BBQ sauce and bake in the oven for 15 minutes.
- Serve warm and enjoy!
Finishing them in the oven is not required, but it gives the ribs that traditional wonderful sticky finish.
These are sure to please.
*Fun Fact: When she was 10-13ish, only 1 out of every 5 batches of sugar cookie dough would make it past the butter/sugar stage and end up in the oven instead of Brie’s stomach. #ThisIsWhyI’mFat
P.S. She also set the microwave on fire during the same era while making home-made microwavable popcorn. Pro tip: Alton Brown is WRONG and you cannot put a paper bag with staples into the microwave; things will go badly.
P.P.S Happy ending. Even though to put out the fire she threw a bowl of water onto it and shorted all the circuits, the microwave started working after a week and her mom was non-the-wiser.
P.P.P.S But, I guess not any longer…
