Make It

Tap or click steps to mark as complete

  • Place ribs in slow cooker; top with onions, then combined remaining ingredients. Cover with lid.
  • Cook on LOW 6 to 8 hours (or on HIGH 3 to 4 hours). Transfer ribs to plate, reserving sauce in slow cooker; cover ribs to keep warm.
  • Skim excess fat from sauce; return ribs to sauce. Stir gently until evenly coated.

Serving Suggestion

Serve with hot cooked vegetables and mashed potatoes.


Meats cooked in a slow cooker make great leftovers. Cover and refrigerate any leftover meat in the leftover sauce. When ready to reheat, remove and discard any fat from surface of sauce. Cook ribs and sauce in saucepan on medium-low heat until heated through (160°F), stirring frequently.

Special Extra

Garnish with chopped fresh parsley just before serving.

    I tried this recipe knowing my husband isn't a fan of ribs. Well he is now a fan. He asks me almost every week " When are you going to make your ribs again?" I made it because my son and I love ribs.The ribs are fall off the bone. I make this very couple of weeks and have requests by family members to make this recipe.
