Pete's Crock Pot Ribs

If you love ribs and want cooking to be easy, this recipe is for YOU! Once again, you can "set it and forget it!" My favorite way of cooking. I am posting this recipe, but I have to give credit where credit is due. Since I am laid up from having knee surgery last week, by hubby has been cooking every meal. Thanks Babe! He created this recipe, and I made him take pics for my blog. I told him just because I am not the one cooking, I still have to post for my peeps! And I would give him full credit, of course. So here it is, compliments to Chef Pete.

What you will need:

Crock Pot #ad

Brush for BBQ sauce #ad

Wire Rack on Baking sheet #ad

1 pack of pork ribs (he used a pack from our Butcher Box, grass fed, organic meats)

1 TBSP of each spice:

I buy most of mine at Aldi since they sell organic spices cheap!

Chili Powder (you may leave this out if it will be too spicy for your kids)


Garlic Powder

Onion Powder



Brown Sugar

1 teaspoon of each:

Real Salt

Cayenne Pepper (you may leave this out if it will be too spicy for your kids)

BBQ Sauce of your choice (set this aside to brush on after the ribs have fully cooked in the Crock Pot. Pete used a Mango BBQ Sauce which gave the ribs come extra sweetness.)

Remove the membrane from the back of the ribs so the meat can absorb all the spicy goodness.

Mix together all the spices in a small bowl. Sprinkle over the ribs and massage it into the meat. You most likely will have extra for the next time you want to make this. Store extra spices in an air-tight container.

Place ribs in the crock pot on low for 8 hours or on high for 4 hours. Pete made this in the morning so it went for 8 hours.

When you have about a half hour left for the crock pot, start getting the next steps ready:

Preheat your oven on the highest broiler setting.

Remove ribs from the crock pot and place on a wire rack. Make sure the side where you removed the membrane is facing up. Brush this side of the rib rack with BBQ sauce of your choice.

Place in broiler for 3 minutes.

Remove and flip ribs over to brush the other side with BBQ sauce.

Return to broiler for another 3 minutes.

DONE! Cut and serve! They may be difficult to "cut" as they should just fall off the bone. Ours did! He served it with some air fryer potatoes (see my potato recipe here) and a beautiful salad. Pair it up with whatever you like. Happy Cooking!
