I love slow cooker meals! Most are so quick & easy to put together and by the end of the day you have a delicious, hot & flavorful meal to enjoy with your family. This recipe for Easy BBQ Ribs takes very little time to put together because it only requires 3 ingredients. Extra napkins required for this meal but it’s worth every bite!
Easy BBQ Ribs:
This recipe is so easy to make because it only has 3 ingredients. My favorite side to enjoy with ribs are potatoes like mashed potatoes, loaded stuffed potatoes, even homemade fries.
If you’ve never used liquid smoke before, you’ll find it in the BBQ sauce section of your local grocery store.
- 3 to 4 lbs baby back pork ribs (1.5 to 2 kg)
- ¼ to ½ tsp liquid smoke
- 1¼ cups barbeque sauce, divided
- Cut ribs into three-rib sections.
- Place the rib sections into the slow cooker.
- Drizzle ribs with liquid smoke.
- Drizzle ribs with barbeque sauce (using about 1 cup of the barbeque sauce).
- Cover and cook on Low for 7 to 9 hours or on High for 3½ to 4½ hours, until meat is tender.
- Preheat broiler.
- Using tongs, carefully remove ribs from slow cooker and arrange, meaty side up, in a single layer on prepared baking sheet (baking sheet covered with foil).
- Brush ribs with remaining barbeque sauce.
- Broil for 5 to 7 minutes or until ribs are crisp (be careful not to burn).
- Discard extra liquid in the slow cooker.
- Return ribs to the slow cooker, cover and set to warm for serving.
