Slow-Cooker Barbecue Ribs How-To

Slow-Cooker Barbecue Ribs
Simplify a smoky barbecue-rib dinner with the slow-cooker.

STEP ONE: MIX THE SAUCE

Mix together the brown sugar, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Rub the mixture onto the ribs, coating both sides of the meat.

STEP TWO: SEPARATE RIBS

Cut the ribs into 8 sections, with each section having about 3 ribs.

STEP THREE: COOK

Layer the ribs and the onion in the slow cooker and pour the cola over the ribs. Cover the slow cooker and cook on the low heat setting for 8 to 9 hours or until the ribs are tender. Then remove the ribs from the slow cooker and discard the excess liquid and onion slices.

STEP FOUR: BROIL AND SERVE

Set the oven control to broil and spray a broiler pan with cooking spray. Then pour the barbecue sauce into a shallow bowl. Dip the ribs into the sauce, coating both sides. Once coated, place the ribs on the broiler pan, rib side down. Broil the ribs with the tops 3 inches from the heat source for 3 to 4 minutes, just until the sauce sets up on the ribs. Then turn the ribs, and broil 3 to 5 minutes longer, just until the sauce begins to caramelize. Serve the ribs with the remaining barbecue sauce.
