My Famous Slow-Cooker Ribs
I never thought I liked ribs until I found this recipe. In fact, Derek says these are the best ribs he’s ever had! I took a few different ribs recipes and combined them into this delicious offering. The best part is that they cook in the slower cooker all day, so they’re ready when you get home from work!
As a stay-at-home wife, this is my favorite way of cooking. I can throw something together in the morning, work on errands & freelance writing all day, and have a meal ready when Derek gets home!
Trust the recipe, not the picture above. I’m not a good food photographer! Oh, and did I mention this meal serves 2 and comes out to about 600 calories a person? Not too shabby!
Here are two recommendations to get you started:
Derek uses the Hamilton Beach Set ‘n Forget 6-Quart Programmable Cooker. It’s AMAZING. Allows you to program cooking times, even based on food temperature, and has a removable liner for easy cleaning.
To get this recipe right, you must also buy Garland Jack’s Secret Six Original Recipe BBQ sauce. This is key to the recipe and the taste just won’t be right without this brand:
If you can’t find it, you can buy it on Amazon here. And yes, there is a package of “Tums” in the back of this photo, haha. You won’t need it for these ribs! Without further adieu:
- 3 pounds of beef short ribs
- Minced garlic (or minced roasted garlic)
- Salt & pepper
- Red wine vinegar
- Liquid smoke
- Soy Sauce
- Worcestershire sauce
- BBQ sauce (I recommend Garland Jack’s Original Recipe)
- Dijon Mustard
- Red pepper flakes
