I agree, these are steamed ribs. Not traditional southern ribs. Recipes describe ribs as falling off the bone; I like the meat to be tender, but still on the bone.

It would be refreshing to read fewer complaints from people who haven't bothered to actually try the recipe.

I'd start with the ribs in a smoker with some good hickory smoke for about an hour. Then move to the crock pot with sauce. That way one would pick up some good smoke flavor. Think I'll try that!

Nice debate but isn't a slow cooker just that - anything that you can control the heat within that allows you to cook over parts of a day as opposed to a matter of hours. Try the Weber Smoky Mountain BBQ Smoker and cook your pork ribs for 10 hours at 200. You want wow. That is wow.

I like this recipe, because I don't eat corn syrup products and skip bottled sauces. One prep step missing: REMOVE THE SILVER SKIN FROM THE RIBS. It is on the bony side of the ribs. Use the tip of a knife to lift it at one of the corners, then grip it with a paper towel and pull with all your might. The silver skin is the toughest part of the rib and it shrinks when cooking. The shrinking action wrings juice from the meat. Another good step is to slice between the ribs, leaving 1.5 inches joined at the top and bottom. This allows the barbecue sauce to penetrate from the sides, too.

why couldn't you just prepare these and use a commercial barbque sauce? We like "SWEET BABY RAYS" So much simpler...

Made these yesterday, the recipe was easy and good, though I did a few adds as I like a little kick to my bbq sauce, I added cayenne pepper to the rub and some papkrika sauce (purchased at a Turkish store) and added about 2 tbspns of hot sauce. The outcome was awesome, my b/f and roommate loved it. Thanks

I make mine by putting them in the crock pot, add some liquid (beer or water, etc) salt, pepper and cover ribs in your favorite BBQ sauce. Cook on low for 8 hours... You will love them!

How many time will i click on a recipe saying it's a "Slow Cooker" recipe and the reality is that it is not.A slow cooker is a crock pot, not a standard oven. Also, 15 minutes on each side does not brown the ribs. There is no need to even brown them. If you want a really good way of truly slow cooking ribs just season them how you like then put them in a Slow Cooker on high for 4 hours. after they are done remove from the slow cooker and let stand. meanwhile, make your BBQ sauce . Next, lay your ribs out on a disposable aluminum foil baking pan , coat the top of your ribs with the BBQ sauce then put under the broiler for 8 minutes.
