Slow cooker barbecue ribs


These melt-in-your-mouth BBQ ribs are so simple to make! Leave the job to your slow cooker and enjoy sticky, crumbly ribs when you get home!

Ribs cooked in a slow cooker are simple and delicious! Ribs that are so tender they practically fall off the bone are finished in the oven with the greatest barbeque sticky glaze and caramelized edges. The greatest marinade to slather over ribs is without a doubt the 4-ingredient marinade.

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 3 Hours
Total Time: 3 Hours 10 minutes


  • 4 pounds baby back pork ribs
  • 2 cups barbecue sauce
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 3 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 tbsp cayenne pepper
  • 2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • Salt , to taste



  1. Apply cooking spray to the interior of a 6-quart slow cooker.
  2. Put the ribs in the slow cooker after removing the inner skin (membrane). Throw away skin.
  3. In a small bowl, mix the barbecue sauce, brown sugar, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, and cayenne pepper. Add half of the sauce, mix well to blend, and completely cover.
  4. Add a generous quantity of salt and pepper to the dish, cover it with a lid, and simmer for 7-9 hours on low or 3-5 hours on high. For subsequent use, save any sauce leftovers in the refrigerator.
  5. Transfer ribs to a baking sheet or oven tray that has been lined with parchment paper once they are tender and beginning to come apart. Carefully lift them since the meat will be extremely soft and practically fall off the bone.
  6. Mix the leftover sauce with half of the slow cooker’s fluids. Baste the ribs with half the sauce, then broil (grill) them in a 400°F (220°C) preheated oven for about 10 minutes, or until the edges start to brown and become crispy.
  7. Serve the ribs with any leftover sauce.
