Slow Cooker Ribs
About: These ribs are a fool proof juicy, fall off the bone, melt in your mouth, meaty experience that are sure to impress at your next cookout. Seriously, they are so good that your mouth won't know what hit it. Feeds 4-6 people. Adapted from Leite's Culinaria.
Recipe Type: Meals
- 1.5 ounces Marietta Blackened Rib Rub
- 4 pounds pork baby back ribs with membrane removed
- 2 cups barbecue sauce
- Vegetable oil spray
Rub the Marietta Rib Rub evenly over ribs. Arrange the ribs upright in the slow cooker, meaty sides facing outward. (To ensure that the ribs cook evenly, prop the racks up on their ends along the perimeter of the slow cooker, wide end down, meatier side facing the side of the slow cooker.) Pour the barbecue sauce over the ribs, cover, and cook on low until tender, 6 to 8 hours.
- Spray a large section of tin foil with vegetable oil. Remove ribs from slow cooker and place on tin foil. Allow meat to rest for 5-10 minutes.
- Use left over drippings from the slow cooker to brush ribs. Wrap ribs in tin foil and place on grill over medium-high heat until ribs are charred which is approximately 5 minutes for each side. Remove from heat and rest meat again for 5-10 minutes. The drippings from the slow cooker may also be used as a dipping sauce for your ribs.
