Crockpot Spicy Ribs

These are mega easy to make, & perfect when you don't have the time to spend in the kitche. Prep em, turn em on, & leave em! That's it.

Crockpot Ribs:

5 lbs pork loin back ribs
1 can Dr. pepper
2 cups water
1/4 cup brown sugar

1/2 red onion
3 cloves garlic-smashed & peeled
4 tablespoons Salt

Pepper to taste

1 tablespoon Hungarian paprika

2 tablespoons Smoked Paprika

3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

¼ cup Apple cider vinegar

1 bottle regular BBQ sauce

1/8 cup Molasses

3 teaspoons Honey

½ small (6 oz. can) Chipotle pepper in Adobo sauce


Place crock pot on high. In a large bowl, whisk all ingredients except ribs & Dr. Pepper together. Trim & clean ribs, rinse and pat dry. Place into crock pot sideways, so that riblets run vertical. I usually trim mine down so that they will fit into the crockpot easily. I also have an enormous oval shaped crock pot, but for half a recipe will use my regular sized round crock pot.

Pour barbeque sauce over the top, then add can of Dr. Pepper. Stir, then cover. Check a few times throughout the day, and decrease heat after the first 3 hours. Cook for up to 8 hours. In the last 30 minutes, pre-heat oven to 400, & place ribs onto a rib rack. Brown in oven, while basting with extra sauce for 20 minutes.

I also reduce some of the BBQ sauce from the crock pot over the stove top to serve on the side.
