Today I’ll be sharing with you a recipe for ribs in your crockpot. Cooking with my crockpot makes for an easy delicious meal and easy cleanup! [Who doesn’t love that?!] I also love making recipes like this when cooking for my friends or family that way I can really enjoy hanging out with them and not have to spend too much time in the kitchen.
The first step will be marinating the ribs; I marinate mine on a cookie sheet! I mixed brown sugar, cayenne pepper, cumin, salt, and pepper. [Pictured below.]
It’s up to you how long you want to let them marinate, but I just made these around 10 am to have ready for dinner, so I just threw them in the crockpot. Then I smothered them in Sweet Baby Rays [My favorite BBQ sauce, but you can use any brand/kind for your ribs.] and stirred them, so they have been fully covered in BBQ sauce.
Next step is turning the crockpot to low and cooking for 4 hours or until tender. Once meat is cooked, turn the crock pot off and remove ribs and place on a cutting board. Then slice ribs.
Lastly, serve up and enjoy!
