Slow Cooker BBQ Baby Back Ribs


Recipe Overview

Everybody loves grilled BBQ Baby Back Ribs but when it's cold outside, it's not always possible to fire up the grill. Here's an easy way to make them in a crockpot. This recipe is slightly sweet, slightly smoky, and has a bit of spice. Cutting the ribs into 2 rib portions makes it a great dish to serve at your Football Party!


Recipe Ingredients

  • 2 Racks LGCM Baby Back Ribs
  • LGCM Pork Seasoning
  • 3/4 Cup Brown Sugar
  • 1 Bottle Spotted Cow
  • 2 Cups LGCM BBQ Sauce

Recipe Yield

Serves approx. 4 people

Recipe Directions

  1. Cut the pork baby back ribs into chunks between every 3 bones.  Season generously with Pork Seasoning & Brown Sugar.
  2. Pour beer & water into the bottom of the slow cooker add baby back ribs bone side down & cook for 5-6 hours on high.
  3. The meat will start to pull away from the bone once its cooked fully. Once fully cooked, remove ribs from crockpot & place on a sheet pan.
  4. Cover the ribs in BBQ Sauce, place on the sheet pan, and cook under a broiler, until the sauce glazes. Remove and enjoy!

    How much water is used along with the beer????

    • Hi Anton,
      Thanks for watching and for the question. We just use enough water to make sure the bottom of the pot is filled in case the beer doesn’t cover the whole bottom. Hope that helps!
