Slow Cooker Ribs

Do you need an easy meal to feed a crowd on Super Bowl Sunday? Well, here you go! These ribs are amazing, fall-off-the-bone and very easy to make. You just put the sauce together, cover about 4-5 pounds of ribs in it and then throw them in the slow cooker. It is super easy to pull together the morning of the game.

Like I mentioned, it feeds a crowd (easily 8-10 people) so if you’d like to make a smaller batch just half the recipe. Enjoy the game! Don’t mind me on Sunday while I crush these like Tom Brady crushes Super Bowl dreams. Just sayin’.

4-5 pounds of pork loin baby backribs, 1 cup of ketchup, ¼ cup of yellow mustard, ¼ onion diced, 8 cloves of chopped garlic, ¼ cup of honey, ¼ cup of red wine, 2 tablespoons of brown sugar, 2 tablespoons of dried parsley, salt and pepper.

Place the ribs in a large bowl and season with salt and pepper.

Combine the remaining ingredients in a separate bowl and stir with a wire whisk making sure they are very well combined.

Pour the sauce over the ribs and toss the ribs to coat. You want to make sure they are well coated.

Place the ribs in a large slow cooker and cook on low for six hours.


I always assemble another batch of the sauce for serving by halving the recipe above and substituting a bit of onion powder and garlic powder in place of the fresh onion garlic. When the ribs are done cooking I’ll transfer them to a serving platter and cover with some fresh sauce leaving what is remaining to be served on the side. The ribs are pretty flavorful straight from the slow cooker but I find that most people enjoy eating them with the sauce as well. Also, I highly recommend Costco’s Swift Pork Loin Backribs for this recipe. I find them to be pretty meaty and hold up very well to slow cooking.
