Slow Cooker Barbequed Beef Ribs

I have never cooked ribs in the slow cooker. In fact, let’s just say I’ve never made ribs… period. So this recipe for slow cooker boneless ribs was a first for me and I was really hoping they would be as good as the ones my best friend makes. You see, she makes these beef ribs to die for, but she bakes them in the oven. And I really wanted to do better than her recipe.

HOW LONG SHOULD THE RIBS BE COOKED IN THE SLOW COOKER?

Cook the ribs in the slow cooker on low for 7 to 9 hours or on high for 4 to 5 hours or until tender. And they’ll be perfect.

How to remove membrane from ribs before cooking

Before cooking, I recommend removing the membrane from the back of the ribs. It’s not essential to do this, but I find the sauce is better absorbed into the meat when removed. At one end of the rack, slide a fork or a blunt knife under the membrane and over a bone. Lift the membrane away off of the bone until it begins to tear Use a paper towel to grab hold of the edge of the membrane and pull it off. It may come off in one piece or it may tear into smaller pieces.

      TIPS FOR THE BEST SLOW COOKER RIBS:

      The slow cooker pork rib marinade recipe makes a good amount, but you’ll want to use the whole mixture for full-flavored pork ribs. Not too spicy, not too sweet, but just right – that’s what my parents said when they stopped by and ate the leftovers.
      I like to dip each piece of rib in the spice mixture, front and back, then rub the mixture all over with my hands.

      CAN I MAKE THE SLOW COOKED BBQ RIBS AHEAD OF TIME?

      Yes, you can make the entire recipe as written or just make the homemade barbecue sauce ahead of time. If you make the full recipe, you will need to refrigerate the ribs (in the slow cooker). Then reheat them on low heat when you are ready to eat them.

      HOW TO STORE SLOW COOKER PORK RIBS
