STEPHEN’S PRO TIP: One of the best tips for making ribs in the crockpot is to use a crockpot liner, making clean up a breeze! No more scrubbing out caramelized, burnt on sauce! They are awesome. You can find them in your grocery store near things like aluminum foil and plastic bags. They are a huge time saver.


4-5 servings

  • 2 cups store-bought BBQ sauce(580 g)
  • ¼ cup brown sugar(55 g)
  • 4 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 3 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 4 lb (about 2 racks) pork back or side ribs
  • salt, to taste
  • pepper, to taste
  • pepper, to taste

(NOTE: This sauce is AMAZING but if you are short on time, you can cheat by just using 1.5-2 bottles of your favorite BBQ sauce at the grocery store! My favorite brand is Diana’s Sauce)


  1. Combine BBQ sauce, brown sugar, cider vinegar, oregano, Worcestershire sauce, cayenne pepper, and chili powder in a small bowl.
  2. Salt and pepper the ribs. Place ribs in slow cooker, and cover in sauce.
  3. Cook low and slow for eight hours or high for four hours.
  4. After the ribs are done, spoon the bbq sauce in the slow cooker over the ribs before removing.
  5. Cut the ribs, serve with bbq sauce.
  6. Enjoy!
