Slow Cooker Ribs

Look closely, the ribs are the big plate in the middle.
I used to spend a lot of time wandering the BYU bookstore. My husband and I didn't always have classes at the same time or I would need to kill some time while I was waiting for him to finish a test.  I found a lot of good books in the bargain books section, mostly cookbooks. One of the cookbooks I found was Cook Once, Eat Twice Slow Cooker Recipes.  I bought it because it's full of slow cooker recipes, but it's a neat book overall.  It'll give a recipe and then the next page is a recipe for using the left overs (if you have any left overs, that is.)  I have so many cookbooks that I've never used this one until yesterday. We had signed up to have the missionaries from church over for dinner and they had told my husband they wanted some barbecue.  The cookbook had a recipe for ribs in the slow cooker, so I thought I would try it out since the best way to get tender ribs is to slow cook them anyway.  They were delicious and very, very tender (some of them just about fell off the bone in the slow cooker.)

Slow Cooker Ribs
  • 4-5 pounds ribs (the original recipe called for pork , but I used beef. It's what my hubby wanted)
  • 1 1/2 cups bottled BBQ sauce
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped celery
  • 2 cloves  garlic, minced ( I love garlic so I added a few more cloves)
  • 2 Tablespoons yellow mustard
  • 2 Tablespoos Worcestershire sauce
Place ribs in your slow cooker. In a bowl mix together remaining ingredients. Pour sauce mixture over ribs in slowcooker. Cook on low for 8-10 hours.


  1. Those ribs sound wonderful if the meat gets so tender it is almost falling off the bone. That is my kind of meal :) Thanks for coming by to share your recipe at These Chicks Cooked Recipe Spotlight. Have a great weekend!

  3. Oh my yumminess! I'll have to try this one too!


I'm sorry, but I've turned word verification on again. I hate trying to decipher the words just as much as anyone, but I'm getting way too much spam. I tried doing comment moderation as people suggested but the number or spam comments I had to sift through was ridiculous. I appreciate your comments and didn't want them to get lost among the spam. Hopefully, I can reduce the amount of spam and turn the word verification off soon.
