Slow-Cooker Barbecue Ribs
Source of Recipe
Slow cooker barbecue ribs are an easy and delicious way of making barbecue ribs without the barbecue.
List of Ingredients
4 pounds pork baby back ribs
salt and pepper to taste
2 cups ketchup
1 cup chili sauce
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
4 tablespoons vinegar
2 teaspoons dried oregano
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1 dash hot sauce
Preheat oven to 400° degrees F.
Season ribs with salt and pepper. Place in a shallow baking pan. Brown in oven 15 minutes. Turn over, and brown another 15 minutes; drain fat.
In a medium bowl, mix together the ketchup, chili sauce, brown sugar, vinegar, oregano, Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce, and salt and pepper. Place ribs in slow cooker. Pour sauce over ribs, and turn to coat.
Cover, and cook on LOW 6 to 8 hours, or until ribs are tender.
If using a round slow cooker cut the racks into thirds for a better fit. I got good results at 7 hours on LOW. Skim the fat from the sauce before serving.
