Slow Cooker Spare Ribs

These Slow Cooker Pork Spare Ribs are an easy way to make tender, juicy, fall-off-the-bone pork ribs for game day, BBQs or lazy weekends at home.

They are cooked with a simple dry rub, smothered with BBQ sauce and then finished in the oven to give them delicious crispy edges.


– Spare Ribs – Garlic Powder – Onion Powder – Salt – Pepper

To prepare the ribs, first remove the membrane. Pat dry with a paper towel, then cut the ribs in half.


In a small bowl, mix together the garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper. Sprinkle the dry rub on the spare ribs coating all sides, then place half of the ribs in the slow cooker.


Add about ½ cup of BBQ sauce, spreading with a spoon to cover, then add the remaining ribs and another ½ cup of BBQ sauce to cover.


Cook on low for 6-7 hours or on high for 3-4 hours.


When the ribs have almost finished cooking, preheat an oven to 425 degrees. Place the ribs onto a baking sheet and slather the rest of the BBQ sauce over the top.
