Crock It! Barbecued Baby Back Ribs


Share post:

During the most recent Verona Family Night we debated: Take the kids out for dinner, or have dinner at home and just go out for dessert. Guess which won?

To really get into the spirit of family fun night, I  avoided the stress of making dinner at dinner time and went for my Crock Pot. It seemed the perfect opportunity to try a new rib recipe, as per a reader’s request.

Normally, when I make ribs in my Crock Pot I par-boil them on the stove first and then throw them in the pot with some barbecue sauce and call it a day. I’m so glad I didn’t do that tonight! I received a great recipe for Barbecued Baby Back Ribs and let’s just say this was so much better than what I normally make!

Notes from My Experience:

  • The recipe calls for 4 pounds of ribs for 8 servings. Now, ever since I watched the movie Food Inc. I have been buying my meats at Whole Foods where the farms supplying the meat are displayed. That said, 4 pounds of ribs were going to be expensive and as there are only 5 of us (not 8) I went for about 2 pounds of ribs, which was fine for our family.
  • The editors suggest doubling or tripling the amount of spice rub to save for later. The rub was delicious so I would suggest doing that.
  • I made buttermilk biscuits to go with the ribs and would have made cole slaw, but I was out of vinegar,  so no slaw.
  • This is an awesome rib recipe and I love the way the barbecue sauce is added separately at the end to create a glaze. Delish!
