Crock Pot Pork Ribs

My parents were the ones that got us hooked on the rub for these ribs. You dry rub them before they cook then slather them with BBQ sauce. PERFECTION ON A PLATE! I LOVE LOVE LOVE that I can make them in the crock pot. My parents take hours to slow cook them in the oven with multiple steps. I am busy and don't have the time to devote to that, so one day I tried them in the crock pot. They taste the same! I was so pleased. We have these often with our Skinny Sweet Potato Fries and our Crazy Good Cole Slaw. A meal made in heaven. Prepare it and leave it! Fall off the bone, finger lickin,' fabulous! 

My parents told me about this. There is a "membrane" (they call it) on the back of the ribs you need to pull off before you prep and cook them.

Cut the ribs in sections and rub the dry mix all over. 

Dry Rub for Ribs
3/4 c. Brown Sugar
1 tsp. Salt
1 T.  Paprika
1 T. Garlic Powder
1/2 tsp. Chili Powder

Mix altogether and rub over thawed ribs. Place rib sections in a greased crock, make sure not much of the ribs touch the sides. (The sides make it cook faster) Place 1 c. Water in the bottom of the crock pot. Cook on Low for 8-10 hours. 

When done cooking, lather with Baby Ray's BBQ Sauce. 

We ate this with our Crazy Good Cole Slaw and our Crock Pot Baked Sweet Potatoes. Delish!
