Baby Back Ribs, Crockpot Style



These ribs are fall-off the bone good! Our son absolutely loves them and is always asking me to make them. A big hit, all around and super easy!

Serves 4 to 6 depending on appetites in your household….


  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/8 tsp ground red pepper (optional)
  • 3 to 3 1/2 lb rack of pork baby back ribs, cut into 4-rib pieces
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 2 tbsp packed dark brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tbsp lite soy sauce
  1. Coat crock pot with cooking spray. Combine the first 5 to 6 dry ingredients. Rub onto meaty side of ribs.
  2. Place ribs in crock-pot and cook on low 7 to 8 hours or on high 3 to 3 1/2 hours or until ribs are tender.
  3. Discard cooking liquid.
  4. Combine ketchup, sugar, worcestershire and soy sauce. Mix well and that is your BBQ sauce.
  5. Coat ribs with sauce and return to pot. Cook on high 30 minutes for them to glaze.

Serve with mashed potatoes or sides of your choice and of course a big salad. Enjoy!

This recipe is from the Crock-Pot Best Loved Slow Cooker Recipes cook book. Some great recipes in there. I added the garlic powder. Are you surprised?!!!


About whats4dinner2nite

I love to cook but have been running out of time to prepare healthy and affordable meals for my family every night. Fast food is not an option for us and I thought with a little planning I could help other parents with the dreaded question of, "what's for dinner tonight?" My goal is to lay out a menu for the week with recipes and sales at my favorite grocery store, Giant. Happy healthy cooking to all and to all a yummy night!
