Fall-Off-the-Bone Ribs

This is my go-to one-and-only rib recipe. I found the original recipe on Pinterest last year, tweaked it a bit and haven’t used another rib recipe since. This is a crockpot recipe! And the ribs are so so so good. The meat falls off the bone every. single. time. Try it and let me know what you think!

  1. 3 Tbl smoked paprika
  2. 2 Tbl light brown sugar
  3. 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  4. 1 tsp salt
  5. 1 tsp pepper
  6. 2 lbs pork baby back ribs
  7. 1 bottle or about 3 C of barbecue sauce (I use Sticky Fingers' Carolina Sweet)
  1. In a small bowl, mix together all of the dry ingredients.
  2. Rinse off your ribs and pat dry. Cut the slab in half and rub the dry mixture all over the front and back of each half.
  3. Stand each slab half against the side of a crock pot with the thicker side down and meaty side against the wall of the crockpot. Pour the barbecue sauce over the ribs, cover and cook for 6-8 hours on low.
  4. After ribs are finished cooking in the crockpot, very carefully remove them to a wire rack set on a cookie sheet with the meaty side facing down.
  5. Strain the remaining BBQ sauce from the crockpot into a saucepan on the stove and heat until boiling. Let softly boil for 10-15 minutes while the sauce thickens and reduces.
  6. Move an oven rack about 10 inches below the broiler element and set your oven to broil.
  7. Once the broiler is preheated, brush the ribs with the reduced BBQ sauce and broil for about 3 minutes or until the tops start to bubble and caramelize. Carefully take the pan out of the oven and flip the ribs over. Brush the meaty side with the reduced sauce and broil for an additional 3 minutes. You can serve any remaining sauce on the side with the ribs.
  8. Enjoy! I like to serve mine with twice-baked potatoes and a big salad.
