You just Do the prep work, slow cook for 4 to 8 hours, add more BBQ sauce to crisp up at the end and dinner is done! You can use pork or beef ribs.

Slow Cooker BBQ Beef Ribs {Serves 4}


  • 2 Racks of Beef Ribs (Or Pork Ribs)
  • 2 Cups BBQ Sauce (Organic BBQ Sauce tastes best. 1.5 Cups for slow cooker and 1/2 cup to smother ribs before broiling in the oven)
  • Spices: Salt, Steak Seasoning, Garlic Powder, Mrs.Dash


1) Thouroughly wash the beef rib racks. Pat dry. Cut each rib rack into 3, so total 6 blocks of ribs. On a plastic plate or foil, season both sides of each block of ribs and set them aside. Turn the slow cooker on High if you want to cook for 4 hours or Low if you want to cook for 8 hours. Using a brush, rub BBQ sauce on each block of ribs and put in slow cooker. Cover with lid and cook for 4 hours on High or 8 hours on Low.


2) When ribs are done slow cooking and falling off the bone, add more BBQ sauce ( about 1/2 cup) on top of ribs and slow cook on high for 15-30 minutes to crisp up and glaze the BBQ sauce on top.
