Awfully Easy Barbecued Ribs

Jan 13

I have made ribs many times and used many different recipes over the years.  I came across this ” Awfully Easy Barbecued Ribs” in my Fix-It and Forget-It Cookbook, Feasting with your Slow Cooker, year 2000.

I always find that cooking ribs in the crockpot for me is sometimes a hit and miss but I thought I would try it again.

I decided to try this recipe today.  Here is the recipe:

From Fix It and Forget-It Cookbook, Dawn J. Ranck and Phyllis Pellman Good

3-4 lb baby back, or country-stylem spareribs ( I used pork ribs, yummy)

1/2 tsp. salt, optional

1/2 tsp. pepper, optional

2 onions, sliced

16-24 oz. bottle barbecue sauce ( depending on how saucy you like your chops)

I used 2 bottles of Diana Chicken and Rib sauce because I did a larger amount of ribs.


1. Brown ribs under brolier.  Slice into serving-size pieces, season, and place in slow cooker.

2. Add onions and barbecue sauce.

3. Cover. Cook on low 6 hours. These are good prepared with baked beans and corn on the cob.
