The title says it all Slow Cooker BEST EVER BBQ Ribs! Love this recipe as I can put it on early in the morning, and know my meal can be ready in just 15 or 20 minutes when I get home in the evening!

  1. Spray the slow cooker with non-stick cooking spray or use a slow cooker liner!
  2. Cut defrosted rib slabs into individual slabs (about 2-3 ribs each). Placing the ribs into the slow cooker.
  3. Mix the pineapple juice and brown sugar together and pour over the ribs.
  4. Cover. Cook on High for 6-7 hours or Low for 8-10 hours.
  5. When the ribs are done in the slow cooker, use tongs to gently pull them out (they will fall apart when you touch them).
  6. Start the grill on medium heat.
  7. While the grill is heating up, mix together the bottle of BBQ sauce and the 1/4 cup of pineapple juice you reserved.
  8. Gently place the ribs on the grill and and brush with BBQ/Pineapple sauce. Turning the ribs twice, slathering with more sauce each time (you can’t have enough sauce!)
  9. The ribs will take about 10-15 minutes to glaze over (as soon as that sauce starts to turn sticky, you know they are done!).

NOTE: I think the grilling steps really add to the recipe but you can certainly skip the grill if you don’t have one or don’t have time for it.

Happy Crocking!
