Crockpot Barbecue Ribs Recipe

Crockpot Barbecue Ribs


  • 2 racks of baby back ribs
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup barbecue sauce (use your favorite brand)
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional, for heat)
  • Chopped fresh parsley or green onions for garnish (optional)


  1. Start by preparing your ribs. Remove the membrane from the back of the ribs if it’s still attached. Season the ribs generously with salt and pepper.
  2. Place the thinly sliced onion and minced garlic in the bottom of your crockpot.
  3. Arrange the seasoned ribs in the crockpot, standing them up against the walls of the pot with the meaty side facing outwards.
  4. In a mixing bowl, combine the barbecue sauce, apple cider vinegar, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, smoked paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, and cayenne pepper (if using). Mix well to combine.
  5. Pour the barbecue sauce mixture over the ribs, making sure to coat them evenly.
  6. Cover the crockpot with the lid and cook on low heat for 6-8 hours, or until the ribs are tender and falling off the bone.
  7. Once the ribs are done cooking, carefully remove them from the crockpot and place them on a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil.
  8. Preheat your oven broiler on high heat. Brush the ribs with some of the cooking liquid from the crockpot.
  9. Broil the ribs in the oven for 5-7 minutes, or until they are nicely caramelized and slightly charred.
  10. Remove the ribs from the oven and let them rest for a few minutes before serving.
  11. Garnish with chopped fresh parsley or green onions if desired.
  12. Serve the ribs hot with your favorite side dishes, such as coleslaw, baked beans, or cornbread.
