Crock Pot BBQ Pork Ribs Recipe

Pork is served rarely in our home, but when it is, this is one of my favorite recipes.

What you will need:   a crock pot, some pork ribs, a sweet onion, an apple, salt, pepper, and a jar of your favorite bbq sauce.

Start by seasoning the ribs with salt and pepper.  I cut the slab of ribs in half so they fit nicely in the crock pot.

Next, grab your onion.  Cut off the ends, peel off the skin, cut it down the middle, and slice.

Place the seasoned ribs into the crock pot and cover with sliced onion.

Add the bbq sauce, and about a half cup of water.

Next, slice an apple.  I have a favorite way of cutting it off the core and then slicing.

Anyway of slicing an apple will work, though.   Toss the apples on top of the ribs, too.

Turn the crock pot on low and cook for 8 to 10 hours.  Serve this with a side of cole slaw and a side of dipping sauce.  Enjoy!

Prep Time:  15 minutes   Cook Time:  8 to 10 hours  Servings:  2


1 slab of baby back pork ribs
1 small sweet onion
1 apple
1 jar bbq sauce


Slice the slab of ribs in half, season with salt and pepper, and place in the crock pot.

Slice the onion and the apple.

Place the onion on top of the ribs, followed by ¾ of the jar of bbq sauce (reserve the rest for dipping), ½ cup of water, and the sliced apples.

Cook on low heat for 8 to 10 hours.  In a hurry, cook on high heat 4 to 6 hours.

Serve with cole slaw or a baked potato with additional bbq sauce on the side for dipping.  Enjoy.
