Crockpot Ribs {+GIVEAWAY}

One of the hazards of being married to a food blogger is that personal dinner requests are quickly usurped by whatever recipes I’m cooking for the blog that week. One evening, Ben arrived home enthralled by a recipe for Crockpot Ribs he’d seen posted to Facebook and asked if I could make something similar in the coming weeks. Kind, considerate wife that I am, I responded with, “Definitely! As soon as we finish the blog leftovers I already have in the fridge.”

AWARD WINNING fall-off-the-bone tender Crockpot Ribs. 10 MINUTES TO PREP! EASY recipe with the best homemade sweet and smoky BBQ sauce. Recipe can be used for country style, baby back or spare ribs. Recipe at wellplated.com | @wellplated

That conversation happened more than a year ago. Wife of the year.

Fortunately for Ben, and for you, me, and anyone else on the hunt for a dynamite recipe for fall-off-the-bone, finger-lickin’, I’m-gonna-need-a-bigger-bib ribs, the perfect crockpot barbecue rib recipe landed right in my mailbox. It was worth the wait!

Not only does this crockpot ribs recipe work for any style of pork ribs (we did baby back ribs, but country-style ribs or spare ribs could be used too), it’s one of the best, easiest slow cooker meals to come out of our kitchen in a while. The prep takes less than 10 minutes, the barbecue sauce is homemade, and by the time the ribs are ready, your entire kitchen will smell like slow-cooked BBQ heaven.
