Slow Cooker Barbecue Ribs

Slow Cooker Barbecue Ribs. Sticky, Saucy, and Fall-off-the-bone Delicious! {The Mommy Games}

Remember how I told you a few weeks ago {here} that I was on a quest to find summer appropriate slow cooker meals? Well, this here is a doozy. Barbecue ribs are like summer on a plate, and these are some of the best I’ve ever had. Since they are cooked low and slow in the crock pot, they are fall of the bone tender, with the added bonus of a crispy, sauce lacquered top since they are finished in the oven. Lick-your-fingers delicious. There is hardly any hands on time with getting them started, and then just a little basting & simmering once they are in the oven. Combined with fresh cut watermelon and buttered corn, this made for a quintessential summertime meal. And it didn’t last long. Both my kiddos and husband devoured these ribs, and had sauce covered faces to show for it. Definitely put these on your list to make!



  1. Wow these look fabulous and yes it’s like summer in the crock pot for sure!

    • Thanks hun! It was as close to an outside bbq meal as we are going to get in the city. :)

  3. I love the spice/sauce combo in this recipe! The family would love it and I’m planning on making it next time we roast.

    • Thanks Gemmi! It gave a lot of flavor with very little effort – which is always a win in my book!

  4. OMG!! The meat just fell off the bones! And so moist and tasty – But the best part was prepping and then leaving for 6 hours and coming back to dinner all ready.
