Sweet and Spicy Crock Pot Ribs

Summer is winding down and football season is just beginning. It’s time to bring out the man-food. I don’t know about you, but I love pork ribs, especially when they are saucy and fall-off-the-bone. The messier, the better. These Crock Pot Ribs are just that. They are so good and so easy to prepare too! We like to serve these with potatoes and fresh corn, and maybe a salad if we want to feel a little less guilty.

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Remove any membrane from ribs.  
  • Rub ribs with seasoning and place in large crock pot (you may have to cut the ribs up so they all fit).
  • Pour in water and cook on low heat for 3-5 hours, until ribs are cooked through and they are already starting to fall off the bone (a good way to tell if they are done is to stick a knife in the ribs and if the knife comes up without pulling at the meat, they are done).
  • In a small bowl, combine chili sauce, sugar, vinegar, ginger, and Sriracha.   
  • Place ribs on a baking sheet and generously brush the sauce over the ribs.
  • Place the ribs on the top oven rack.
  • Broil for about 3-5 minutes or until the sauce begins to caramelize.  Watch them VERY closely so they don’t burn.
  • Remove from oven, lightly cover with foil, and allow to sit for about 5 minutes before serving.

  1. 5 stars
    Great recipe but there is no reason to rest ribs. Any meat that is 1 in or less will not distribute any juices. If you rest them for 5-7 min all you get is colder ribs.

  2. Thank you for this recipe. It is a family favorite. We have too many eaters to use the crockpot, so I slow cook the ribs in the oven and then grill them with the sauce.

  3. Sounds great. If you find you need to edit this recipe, you should add the part about putting the sauce on the ribs. It’s a no-brainer, but just to be complete.
