When I moved to Georgia in my mid-twenties I quickly learned that barbecue—a word I erroneously used to describe grilling hot dogs and hamburgers—was not to be trifled with. My southern friends made delectable pulled pork and ribs, and it took hours, sometimes days! This slow cooker adaptation produces tender smoky ribs and requires only a few minutes of hands-on effort. Learn my quick and simple method for perfect ribs in the recipe below.
Barbecue and hoisin sauces provide the perfect balance of sweet and savory for these ribs. You don’t even need salt and pepper!
Pro Tip: If you like your ribs a little spicy, add a few dashes of hot sauce to the glaze.
Note: All slow cookers are a little bit different in temperature and calibration. This recipe was tested in Cooktop Cove's Test Kitchen using this slow cooker, which is available for purchase here.
