Slow Cooker Barbecued Baby Back Ribs

Comfort food from the slow cooker! Pork ribs in a tangy barbecue sauce make an easy, irresistible family dinner.


8 servings

Sauce Ingredients

1 1/3 cups ketchup
3/4 cup chili sauce
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup cider vinegar
3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon liquid smoke

Ribs Ingredients

4 pound pork baby back ribs, cut into 3-rib sections
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper


In medium bowl, mix all sauce ingredients; set aside.

Spray 5- to 6-quart slow cooker with cooking spray. Sprinkle pork with salt and pepper. Place pork in slow cooker. Spoon about 1 1/2 cups sauce evenly over sections. Reserve remaining sauce; refrigerate.

Cover; cook on LOW heat setting 6 to 7 hours (or on HIGH heat setting 3 hours to 3 hours 30 minutes) or until almost tender.

Remove pork from slow cooker; drain and discard cooking liquid. Return pork to slow cooker; spoon reserved sauce evenly over each section. If cooking on HIGH heat setting, reduce to LOW. Cover; cook 1 hour longer.

Estimated Time

Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 8 hours

Additional Information

Some butchers will cut the ribs into sections for you, if you ask. This will save time and the mess of working with the raw meat. Save even more time by starting with a bottled barbecue sauce-you need 2 2/3 cups.
