Slow Cooker BBQ Ribs ~



    • 4 pounds pork baby back ribs


    • salt and pepper to taste


    • 2 cups ketchup


    • 1 cup chili sauce


    • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar


    • 4 tablespoons vinegar


    • 2 teaspoons dried oregano


    • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce


    1 dash hot sauce


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). I browned the ribs on the stove top.
  2. Season ribs with salt and pepper. Place in a shallow baking pan. Brown in oven 15 minutes. Turn over, and brown another 15 minutes; drain fat.
  3. In a medium bowl, mix together the ketchup, chili sauce, brown sugar, vinegar, oregano, Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce, and salt and pepper. Place ribs in slow cooker. Pour sauce over ribs, and turn to coat.
  4. Cover, and cook on Low 6 to 8 hours, or until ribs are tender.

I got this recipe from all here.

Since this was my first time making ribs in a slow cooker I went with the first recipe that looked decent. This sauce was very good. Since I made these on Saturday I’ve read a couple other recipes and this is the sauce I’ll try next time to see if it has a little more kick to it.

These ingredients come from Taste of Home Magazine ~ Tasty Pork Ribs ~ Feb/March 2008 Recipe by Michelle Rominger…

1 cup ketchup, 1 cup bbq sauce, 1/4 C. packed brown sugar, 1/4 C. worcestershire sauce, 1 Tblsp. balsamic vinegar, 1 tblsp. molasses, 1 garlic clove minced, 2 tblsps. dried minced onion, 1 tsp. Cajun seasoning, 1 tsp. ground mustard, 1/2 tsp. salt, 1/4 tsp. pepper.


Oops! I don’t see anything green on the plate. Can anyone say COMFORT FOOD?

Photobucket is holding my photos hostage from 2007-2015 and replacing them with an ugly black and grey squares demanding money to release them, so frustrating.

  1. Funny, I just put ribs out this morning. It’s to late in the day to go the crock pot route this time, but I’m definately going to give it a try next time. So you brown the ribs in a skillet first? That’s a neat trick … I never have liked the way meat comes out of the crock pot kind of gray. About your new BBQ Sauce … if you add Cajun seasonings, it’ll definately have a little more kick to it!

  2. AMEN to comfort food. The Taste of Home sauce sounds wonderful. I’ve never tried ribs at home so I think I will get some and have them ready when my husband comes home from this week’s business trip. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Wow….that is a meal any man would love…and we girls, too!! Makes my chicken soup look pretty lame!! You are an inspiration!! I will try the recipe out on my sweet guy and soon!!
