BBQ Ribs (Crock Pot Style)

Last Sunday was not only Father’s Day in our house, but also T.J.’s birthday. I wanted to make it special since they were on the same day, so I decided to cook some BBQ ribs. I’ve never attempted cooking ribs before, but I found a recipe by Six Sisters’ Stuff  that cooked them in the crock pot and it looked pretty fail proof. At the end, it says to throw them on the grill for a couple minutes-I just put them on my George Foreman since we don’t have a grill. It did the trick and still turned out great.

Here’s the recipe and photo from Six Sisters’ Stuff:


Fall Off The Bone BBQ Ribs
1 (2-3 lb) rack of ribs (I use pork loin ribs)
3 1/2 cups pineapple juice (reserving 1/4 cup for later)
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
1 (16 oz) bottle BBQ sauce (I love Famous Dave’s Rich and Sassy sauce)

Spray the slow cooker with non-stick cooking spray (or use a slow cooker liner to make clean up a breeze!).

Take your slab of ribs (make sure that they are defrosted) and cut into individual slabs (about 2-3 ribs each). Throw the ribs into the slow cooker.
Mix the pineapple juice and brown sugar together and pour over the ribs. Put the lid back on the slow cooker and cook on HIGH for 7-8 hours or LOW for 10-12 hours.

After they are done in the slow cooker, use tongs to gently pull them out (they will literally fall apart when you touch them). Turn the grill on medium heat. While the grill is warming up, mix together the bottle of BBQ sauce and the 1/4 cup of pineapple juice you saved from earlier.

Place the ribs gently on the grill and and brush with BBQ sauce. Turn the ribs twice, slathering with more sauce each time (you can’t have enough sauce!); they will take about 10-15 minutes to glaze over (as soon as that sauce starts to turn sticky, you know they are done!).

Serve immediately and enjoy!
