  1. Mix the steak seasoning, garlic salt, black pepper, and chili powder in a small bowl. Rub the ribs all over with the seasoning mix, and place into the bottom of a slow cooker. Pour in barbecue sauce, Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, teriyaki sauce, orange juice, and hot pepper sauce. Liquid should not cover the ribs all the way.
  2. Set the cooker to Low, and cook until ribs are tender, about 8 hours.

  • Cook's Note:
  • This is another one of my recipes that is pretty much eyeballed. It can be varied very, very easily depending on the size of your cooker and how many ribs you are using. It is GREAT over mashed potatoes and with any veggie really, though I tend to make my green beans with it.
  • Easy Cleanup
  • Try using a liner in your slow cooker for easier cleanup.

These came out really delicious. However, I only bought 2 pounds of ribs, and I needed a lot more of the dry ingredients to get a good rub. I just kept adding to the bowl - probably with a tablespoon of each dry ingredient by the end.

I can't say I was impressed. It didn't taste like ribs, but more of an asian style food. I prefer more of a bbq taste on ribs. Also, the sauce was too thin in my opinion

YUMMY! This was easy & so good! I did as someone suggested & started off with about 1TSP of the dry ingredients & didn't add hot pepper sauce because I didn't have any on hand....cooked for about 6 hours....other than that I followed directions.......fall apart tender! Friends & family loved it! Will be having this again!

The sauce for this recipe was really yummy! I don't know what went wrong with my ribs though, they tasted like sawdust! Really dried out. I had them in the slow cooker for about 9 hours, I don't know if the heat was too high. Next time I may try bone-in ribs and put my cooker on auto-shift to see if that helps. Loved the sauce, I put it over white rice!

Diabetic changes: My husband is diabetic- loves barbaque and we are in that portion of the country where barbaque sauces are mopped on and sweet. I found Stubbs' original Bar-B-Q which has 4 gm of sugar and 7 carbs in 2 T. and substitued splenda for the orange juice. Stubbs is spicy so I didn't use the steak seasoning, chili or garlic sauce- did put in 2 bulbs of garlic and used low Na Soy Sauce. It was delicious and my husband was smiling that he had barbeque that didn't send his blood sugars soaring. I am not diabetic and I loved it also...
