This is an extremely easy recipe for making ribs in the crockpot. This recipe calls for boneless pork ribs but it would work with other ribs as well.


  • 3lb boneless Pork Ribs
  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • 1 1/2 cups BBQ sauce (homemade or storebought)
  • 1 tsp. pepper


Add ribs, oinion and pepper to the crockpot and cook on low for 6 hours or high for 4 hours.

Drain excess liquid from crockpot using a spoon, ladle or baster. Then add BBQ sauce and cook for 2 more hours on low or 1 more hour on high. After this time you can serve an enjoy!

You can simplify this recipe by simply adding all the ingredients at the start but I prefer removing the liquid so that the ribs are less soupy and the BBQ flovor is less watered down. This recipe freezes well!

This is a super easy recipe and it's delicious. When I find country pork ribs on sale, I stock up and use them for sandwiches, tacos, burritos, etc. It's an inexpensive cut. When it cooks in the crockpot, it becomes very tender.


Total Time: 30 minutes, minus Crockpot cooking time.

Source: The recipe was from Pioneer Woman.


  • country pork ribs
  • Seasonings: salt, pepper, garlic powder, cumin and paprika
  • 1 onion
  • barbecue sauce
  • buns

Add any toppings you would like; mustard, cheese, coleslaw, onion strings, etc.


  1. Generously season ribs with your seasonings. I don't measure it. Just sprinkle it on until it's coated. This mix of spices also works well when using the meat for tacos.
  2. Heat skillet. Once hot, sear ribs until browned.

  4. Add about 1/2 an inch of water to your Crockpot. Add some chunks of onion. I had a leftover shallot that I threw in there also.
  5. Add your ribs to the Crockpot. Cover. Cook on low for 8 hours.
  6. Once done, take the ribs out and break into smaller pieces. If there were bones in your ribs, take those out, along with any fatty pieces.
  7. Put ribs in a pan. Add some barbecue sauce (as much or as little as you would like). Heat and stir for about 5 minutes.
  8. Put some meat on your bun. Add any toppings. I put onion strings on mine.

I've never been in favor of doing ribs in a crockpot, but after trying this recipe several years ago, this is now the only way I'll cook the country boneless pork spareribs.



Combine the first nine ingredients in a slow cooker. Cut ribs into serving-size pieces; brown in a skillet in oil. Transfer to slow cooker. Cover and cook on LOW for 4 to 6 hours or until tender.

Cut ribs into small portions of 2 or 3 bones each. Bring a large pot of water to boil. Season water with a pinch each of salt, black pepper, and crushed red pepper to the water.
