BBQ Ribs in the Slow Cooker

Sunday is slow cooker day.  Usually.  After breakfast I load up the crock pot with the meal of the day, head off to be with our congregation and come home to a wonderfully smelling house. 
I bought a huge pack of boneless pork ribs at Costco. I thought about splitting them up into two meals but the just chucked the whole thing into the crockpot. 

 Don't be afraid of the mustard in the spice rub.  Your ribs won't come out tasting like mustard.  At all. I promise.  They will come out awesomely seasoned and completely delicious. 
I'm glad I made the whole pack.  They made seriously awesome leftovers. We ate these with sweet potatoes with just a bit of Chipotle Butter.  So, so, so very good!

BBQ Ribs in the Slow Cooker Recipe

3 1/2 lbs. boneless pork ribs
2 tbsp. mustard
1 tbsp. garlic powder
1 tbsp. seasoned salt
1 tsp. pepper
1 tsp. salt

Mix spices together in a small bowl.  Smear mustard all over the pork ribs, then sprinkle with spice blend.  Rub the spices in with your hands, covering all sides.  Toss in a large baggie and stick in the refrigerator for a few hours or over night. 

Throw the ribs into the crock pot.  Add about a cup of BBQ sauce and try to coat the ribs with the sauce. I cooked mine on high for about 5 hours and then turned it on low for a few hours until we were ready to eat. 


  1. That looks delicious Debbi! You keep reminding me that I need to eat more sweet potatoes! :D

  2. My husband is packing the slow cooker as I type this with a pork shoulder for tomorrow evening. I enjoy cooking on Sunday but by the start of the week it gets crazy busy. I love using the crock pot.

    Ribs in the crockpot are delicious. Great recipe.


  3. It looks so yummy...I am already hungry...

  4. Is this dried mustard or the squeeze bottle type?

  5. Dairy Queen - I used regular mustard, I just squirted a bunch on and got my hands dirty rubbing it in. Doesn't taste like mustard AT ALL. :-)

  6. Tried this so easy with the slow cooker just love them, thanks Debbi , just one thing i did was in the last half hour i put in 1/4 cup of veg stock omg came out so juicy.
