Southern Style Slow Cooker Ribs are savory, baby back ribs that are fall-off the bone tender. The secret to their amazing flavor is to slather the ribs with a brown sugar and spice dry rub before cooking. Finish with your favorite BBQ sauce under the broiler or on the grill!
Who ever thought of cooking ribs in the slow-cooker is just a genius…the Einstein of cooking! I used to be in the kitchen for hours, basting my ribs in the oven, to get that perfect “bite” of the ribs coming off the bone. But no more folks! These ribs are easy to make and clean up is a breeze. Just a little hint – wrap your broiling pan in foil and you will thank me later.
I call these Southern Style Slow Cooker Ribs because I learned about using spice rubs from my good friend Barb in North Carolina. Barb’s recipe calls for molasses but I substituted brown sugar. I don’t know what it is about me and sticky stuff, but trust me, after getting molasses in my hair the last time, I am staying with the brown sugar.
