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!
- 2 pounds baby back pork ribs, fat trimmed
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1 1/2 cups BBQ sauce (try my roasted strawberry BBQ sauce)
- Pat the ribs dry, season with salt and pepper, place them in the slow cooker with the bones vertical wrapped around the inside, pour 1 cup of the BBQ sauce over the ribs and cook on low until fall off the bone tender, about 6-8 hours.
- Brush the remaining BBQ sauce on the ribs and grill or broil until the sauce is bubbling and just starting to char.
Option: Use a spice blend or rub of choice instead of just using salt and pepper.
