Easy slow cooker pork ribs (1 – 2 servings)


  • 3lbs to 6lbs of pork ribs (baby back ribs or spareribs)
  • Black pepper
  • Salt
  • Garlic powder
  • Onion powder
  • Ground mustard
  • BBQ sauce


  1. Quickly put together a quick rub by combining one tablespoon of smoked paprika, one teaspoon of black pepper, salt, garlic powder, onion powder, and ground mustard; whisk everything together until it becomes one particular color. You can also make things faster by getting a store-bought rib rub like the Plowboys, Yardbird rub, or Trader Joe’s BBQ Rub.
  2. Flip your meat over on a flat surface and make a small cut on the membrane with a knife. Slowly insert your fingers into that cut and pull back; when you have a good piece of that membrane, use a paper towel to help pull it back, and throw it away.
  3. Sprinkle dry rub generously on the meat and rub it into it. Make sure you cover every part of your meat with this rub, flip it over and repeat the same process.
  4. Insert a slow cooker liner in your crockpot and place your pork rib gently into the crockpot; you could stand your meat up so it can cook better.
  5. Set the crockpot to low heat and cook for 6 hours; at this point, add in your barbecue sauce and cook for extra 2 hours
  6. Remove the pork ribs and place them on a baking tray (cover your baking tray with aluminum foil for easy clean-up). The pork rib is completely edible, but the next step is important if you want a restaurant-style pork rib.
  7. After placing your pork rib on the baking tray, brush on some more barbecue sauce (make sure you completely cover the top of the meat with the sauce). Place the ribs directly under the broiler settings in your oven and heat them for about 7 to 10 minutes until they become brown.
  8. Take out the pork ribs, ready to be served. You can serve this alongside any starchy food of your choice.
