Recipe: Crock Pot BBQ Ribs

This recipe for Crock Pot BBQ Ribs is such delicious timesaver… let the crock pot do the work for you… how great is a weeknight meal that all you have to do is make the sides? I don’t know about you.. but I love that kind of recipe. Sometimes you just don’t have time to BBQ on the grill or maybe the weather isn’t cooperating… this recipe is the answer!

The slow cooking makes the meat so tender it literally falls off the bone.

There is barely anything to this recipe… you can hardly call it a recipe!


A lot of recipes skip the oven baking part… I highly recommend you do it… it’s quick enough and really does render the fat a bit so you don’t have a greasy meal.

I sprinkle my ribs with salt and pepper and garlic powder… you can leave the garlic powder off if you prefer… but I think it adds a little extra flavor.

I remove the membrane and cut the ribs into single or 2-3 rib sections, depending on how many people I’m feeding.. If it’s just two of us.. I cut them into singles.

You can use any BBQ sauce you like… I have a great BBQ Sauce posted… or use a commercial brand you like.

I left off quantities because they really don’t matter… just use enough BBQ sauce to have some in the bottom of the pot and have a good amount on top of the ribs to coat them.

If you use a commercial BBQ sauce, you will need a little less than a bottle for 4-6 ribs.

I served this with Loaded mashed Potatoes, Coleslaw and Corn Bread.

I hope you enjoy this great meal!

Could this be done with beef ribs? My husband doesn't like pork, so would like to make something he could enjoy, too.

If I did use beef ribs, would I prepare it the same way?

Love your recipes! Thank you!!

Hi Beth... Yes... absolutely you can do this with beef... Beef ribs tend to be leaner.. so I would skip the oven part of the recipe and just put them in the crock pot with the BBQ sauce...how easy is that??

I posted a BBQ beef recipe using a chuck roast that you may be interested in...that recipe used a BBQ sauce you make yourself... you can sub your own or a commercial favorite.. by the way that recipe puts the crock pot on high.. which is correct... a chuck roast is a hunk of meat and needs more heat than ribs... the link to that recipe is http://cookingtipoftheday.blogspot.com/2009/05/recipe-crockpot-barbecue-beef.html

I hope this helps! Thanks for stopping by and come again soon!
