Juicy crockpot baby back ribs ( 6 servings)

  • Author: Bobby




  1. Bring the baby back ribs to the kitchen counter and pat them dry with a paper towel if wet, then use a knife to carefully remove the membrane along with your hands and paper towels.
  2. Take a medium-sized bowl and add 1 tablespoon paprika, 1 teaspoon garlic powder or 2 teaspoons minced garlic, 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, 1 teaspoon kosher salt, 2 tablespoons liquid smoke, and 1 teaspoon ground mustard or ketchup.
  3. Mix well and use it as a dry rub on the baby back ribs.
  4. After that use a crockpot lining inside the pot if you wish (it would make cleanup easy) and place the ribs inside.
  5. Pour about a cup and a half of barbeque sauce or homemade sauce on the ribs.
  6. Cover the lid and cook on low for about 8 hours.
  7. After the time’s up, (you could check for doneness with a meat thermometer) remove the ribs from the slow cooker and place them on a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil or sprayed with non-stick cooking spray.
  8. Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  9. Brush the remaining barbeque sauce and broil in an oven for about 4-5 minutes or grill for about 3-5 minutes. (You could wrap the ribs in a foil too if you’d like).
  10. Remove when caramelized, let it rest for a few minutes, and serve with any topping or dish you like.
