This recipe seems impossible when you read it. I have served this dish 50 times and it always gets great reviews. The secrete is cooking the ribs without liquid of and kind, the ribs will produce sufficient liquid while cooking and the ribs are tender and flavorful.


1 rack baby-backed ribs; membrane removed
1 1/2 cups favorite pork rub
1 to taste salt; add to rub
1 to taste pepper; add to rub

Original recipe makes 2 Servings



Place crock pot on low

Remove membrane from ribs

May split rack in half if it fits easier in the crock pot

Rub ribs generously with pork rub. salt and pepper added.

Add No liquid to crock pot. believe me you wont need any liquid.

Add ribs to crock pot and cook on low for 8 to 10 hours.

Ribs are done when they are falling off the bone tender.

At this point they can be served as is or broiled for 5 minutes with your favorite barbecue sauce added.


The broiling darkens the ribs and caramelizes the rub or barbecue sauce.

I made these last night and they were amazing! I did put the rub on them the night before but other than that, I made it like the recipe said.

Just made these and yes, no liquid = amazing! I used the thicker country style ribs and a dry rub and wow... A new favorite!

I tried the recipe on Sunday. I used a full rack which was about 2.5 pounds. I did a few things differently: I seasoned the meat with the rib rub the night before and set in the fridge overnight. I put a teaspoon of olive oil and a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar at the bottom of the crock pot and set the ribs on top. In 8 hours the meat was falling off the bone and the meat was so tender! I topped with Sweet Baby Rays BBQ sauce. I will make this again!
