1 teaspoon canola oil
2 pounds baby back pork ribs
1 tablespoon smoked paprika
1/4 cup bbq sauce
1/4 hoison sauce
1. Grease the inside of a 6-quart or larger crockpot with the canola oil.
2. Cut ribs into sections and rub with paprika.
3. Set ribs in the crockpot and cook on high for 3 hours or until fork-tender.
4. Meanwhile, mix barbecue and hoisin sauces.
5. Remove ribs from crockpot and set on a foil-lined baking sheet. Brush with sauce and broil to finish, checking every minute or so to make sure they don't burn.
Pro Tip: If you like your ribs a little spicy, add a few dashes of hot sauce to the glaze.
