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.
