Slow Cooker BBQ Ribs with Roasted Strawberry BBQ Sauce

Slow Cooker BBQ Ribs with Roasted Strawberry BBQ Sauce
BBQ ribs has to be one of my favourite things about summer and I have just been itching to try cooking them in the slow cooker! Getting perfectly cooked, juicy, fall off the bone tender ribs can sometimes be tricky but the slow cooker makes it almost effortless! With the slow cooker you just need to season the ribs, place them in the slow cooker with the ribs vertical, wrapped around the inside, pour on the BBQ sauce and cook on low until nice and tender, about 6-8 hours. Once the ribs are cooked you can slather on more BBQ sauce and throw them onto the grill (or under the broiler) to get that smoky grilled flavour! Speaking of sauce, for these ribs I went with my roasted strawberry BBQ sauce which is perfect for the summer!

The slow cooker makes fall off the bone tender ribs almost effortless! Finish them off on the grill (or under the broiler) for that charred and smoky grill flavour!

Somehow when I first glanced at the title of this recipe I saw 'roasted rhubarb'... You can't go wrong with a strawberry-rhubarb combination; I challenge you, Kevin!

could you let us know what size/quantity the nutrition facts specify? 600+ calories for a single rib, 4 oz, two pounds, ? thanks :)

Che delizia questo piatto!!!!

md: Rhubarb would be a great addition to the strawberry BBQ sauce!

Kevin Lynch said...

Anonymous: The recipe calls for 2lbs of ribs for 4 servings so that is 8oz per person or about 4 ribs.

I just made the strawberry bbq sauce and the chicken club (my first recipe from your blog) and I have to say it was excellent. The sauce hit it out of the park and I want to make a bunch more to make these ribs...I can only imagine what a great combo they are. The strawberry salad is on tomorrow's lunch menu and I can't wait to give that a try.
