Slow-Cooker Ribs

If you follow me on Instagram you’ve likely seen the ribs we’ve been devouring all week. When my local Whole Foods had grass-fed ribs in stock I got way too excited and bought ALL OF THE RIBS. I was going back and forth with how I wanted to make them, and with a busy few days I decided to whip out my slow-cooker. Because set it and forget it is one of the best sayings ever.

 Also, have you made my Homemade BBQ Sauce yet? It is SO easy and free of all the junk those store-bought sauces contain. Do it, trust me.

Slow Cooker Ribs

These ribs are tender, flavorful, meat-y, and deeeeeelicious.

Finger-Lickin’ good.

  1. I made these on Sunday, adding a little chili powder and liquid smoke to the sauce, and they were amazing! We both picked over every millimeter of our ribs looking for any meat we may have missed.

  2. These look great! I make ribs in our crockpot all the time, but I haven’t tried standing them against the edge to cook them. I’ll definitely try that next time.

  3. OMGosh! Can I tell you how amazing these turned out!? While I didn’t make the homemade sauce, the ribs came out tender, juicy and simply perfect! I made them over night so my fiance and I could enjoy them for lunch. He LOVED them.

    Thanks for the recipe and please include it in your cookbook!
