Slow Cooker BBQ Ribs

The other night I was needing a quick and easy dinner. Knowing what I had on hand and after having made a lot of recipes, you get a feel of what works together. With very minimal ingredients, these ribs are SUPER simple to throw together. Despite their easiness, they are down right delicious.

As with most all slow cooker recipes, it does all the work for you. This is a dump and leave alone recipe that will have your family licking their plates! Summer is the perfect time for slow cooker recipes because it doesn’t heat up your house and it leaves it smelling super yummy! Enjoy this recipe just as my family does :)

    Nikki, you have done it again! You are going to make me a queen in the kitchen :) These were to easy and so delicious! I think I actually prefer them over real smoked ribs. They were so tender they were falling off the bone and I had to get a spoon to get them out of the Crockpot. Success, thank you!

    They look so wonderful I decided to make them. I was laughed out of the butcher's place though. What is a boneless pork loin rib? I went to two places with your recipe and the butcher was confused. I am supposed to buy boneless pork loin that comes in a bundle or ribs?
