I had never made ribs before these, but this recipe made it look so easy, I couldn't resist. They did not disappoint! Super messy, so have wet wipes handy! (I adapted this recipe from here.)
Easy Crock Pot BBQ Ribs
2 Tbsp. paprika
2 Tbsp. packed brown sugar
1 Tbsp. kosher salt
1/2 Tbsp. ground black pepper
5-6 lbs. baby back ribs (St. Louis-style spare ribs)
2-3 c. favorite BBQ sauce (we prefer Sweet Baby Ray's)
Combine paprika, brown sugar, salt and pepper in a small bowl.
Rub the mixture over the meaty side of the ribs.
Place ribs in slow cooker standing them upright with the meaty side against the wall of the cooker.
Pour the BBQ sauce over the ribs.
Cook on low for 4-5 hours until tender.
Remove ribs and allow to sit for 15 minutes (cover with foil).
Cut ribs apart.
Cover with BBQ sauce left in cooker if desired.
